I’ve been having quire persistent thoughts that it’s time to donate my giant vintage dining room table to Goodwill along with the rug beneath it… and replace it with a silk overdyed punch-colored rug and… a vintage tulip table!
Whether marble-topped, wood-topped, pure classic white… a designer original or an Ikea knockoff (yes there is such a thing!) … the tulip table is an almost-always-perfect dseign move, especially when it’s placed in classical settings as a refreshing sculptural piece of wonder!
I’ve been toying with the idea of keeping my cane chairs to circle around the table…
A faux hide rug is an alternative to the overdyed carpet, for sure…. but I’ll get myself a metallic one if I go that route… I want way more fresh and stunning. I’m growing tired of subtle, especially in my office. (via poppytalk: Photography — Montse Garriga Grau | Stylyng —Bea Aparicio for Living Etc.)
Here’s some real vintage for you- those custom upholstered tulip chairs are the best.
Though, look at the sleek softness of an oval tultip table. They’re easy to find online, and I particularly love oval tables with marble tops…
Just look at the artful simplicity.
Circles create a sense of equality, cooperation… there are no sharp edges, no controversy… and so much sleek glamour. These tables are an amazing way to lighten up a far-too-heavy dining room, kitchen or even to create a seating area off of a living room in an open floorplan… or light up a big foyer… or… just to admire…anywhere!
Off I go to search for more… ! xoxo Dana
