On the Table

While I don’t particularly like skirted side tables, I do have a penchant for skirted entry tables.  That’s what started this post but then it began to flow into skirted dining and library tables and then into just plain library tables.  The common theme being a fabulous place to display books and branches.  Enjoy.

    Thank you for a delightful Sunday post. I love each and every one of the skirted tables. the Grant Gibson is my favorite, or maybe the David Netto!? I use them quite a bit in bedrooms. They are an economical alternative to a bedside table.

    Adore Heather, I only wish I had a fabulous entry for a large round table. So many gorgeous rooms! Off to pin!

    Oooh these tables are gorgeous. I especially love the full length tablecloths. I must get one!

    These fantastic photos of the skirted tables prove that they are timeless and will never go out of style. Love the many options too — both modern and traditional.

    I know I should be admiring the skirted entry table, and I am, but the whole foyer in the second Veranda picture takes my breath away. The pattern cast from the pendant is like rain falling on the walls of a glass gazebo – such a romantic first impression!

    Such a beautiful collection of some of my favourite houses – must be the common theme you pointed out – books and branches 🙂 Thanks!
