"Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught.It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer."

Tuesday Tip {Coffee and Cocktails}

Coffee tables, or cocktail tables if you are a friend or follower of Dorothy Draper, are an essential piece of an living room. They need to reflect the shape of the room along with the shape of the arrangement of the furniture. Coffee tables usually are between 15"-18" high depending on the seat height of your sofa, and come in many shapes and sizes. Coffee tables unite the conversation area and sometimes can be a statement that tells about the style of the room. Here are a few that make me happy.
The Statement Piece:
Walnut Slab on Bronze base
Hudson Furniture
One of my Personal Favs:
Chelsea Coffee Table
Reclaimed elm with a steel base
Jayson Home & Garden
