Tiny Tables

When you are blogging, you are looking at millions of pictures to find just the right image to display for your blog.  After a while they all seem to run together.

But lately I've been noticing a trend toward interesting little tables and benches being used instead of those matching end tables that have become passe' .

So, when I began to really LOOK for them, I'm amazed at the variety of ways they are used in a room.

Obviously, they are found next to chairs, sofas and chaises.

I love the organic shapes of these little tables.

Ok,  I realize the tables are highly overshadowed by this CRAAAZY sofa.

But there are some fun tables that have organic shapes.

And then there are the stools and benches that are used as tables....

And then there are stools that are just used as stools....or maybe something else.

  3. Hi Sally! How did you know that cool little tables are (another) one of my obsessions.! I may have just come out from under my rock on this but how cool is that mini saarinen table?!?

  4. What beautiful images. I do like the use of different tables in different sizes and styles instead of matchy matchy.

  5. Thanks for pointing me to this post - there are some great styles here! Decisions, decisions . . .
