Charles de Lisle - a quickie 

Before I pass out, here is one more quickie, courtesy of the portfolio of interior designer Charles de Lisle. It is a few bits from one of his projects, that features a pretty funky light fixture in a dining room and one of the coolest coffee tables I've ever seen. (I seem to be crushing on Charles as I've blogged his work already here, here and here).

Coffee table conundrum

A reader wrote in wondering what to do for a coffee table and has a couple requirements - she doesn't want 2 smaller tables and her other half doesn't want glass. I've been in the same predicament for several months now, and can't seem to find anything suitable, although I will probably go for glass or acrylic since my room is so small. I think coffee tables are a perfect place to add a little bit of the unexpected - a bit of colour, a different style to the rest of the space, a bit of can really do anything. Since our reader already has a blend of styles in her living room - a sofa (contemporary casual - Crate and Barrel-like), chairs (modern), side table (antique mahogany parlor table), and lamp (Tiffany-style), then why not spice things up? I am loving Moroccan tea tables at the moment as a great way to inject a little bit of ethnicity. Or perhaps something Asian flavoured? Below are a wide range of styles for some ideas.

Coffee tables

Coffee tables seems to be a pretty popular topic these days. Jennifer Ramos sent us a link to her website featuring some of her unique coffee tables, like this one:

The guys at modern self emailed us about some great DIY projects such as this pendant light, this amazing paint finish and this coffee table as seen below:

Must also mention the FAB-U-LOUS coffee table recently purchased by Danielle of the style files.
