When you're entertaining, it seems like there's never enough space for people to leave their drinks and noshes (or phones). However, that doesn't mean you need to add a massive coffee table or side board that will just collect junk, dust, etc. the rest of the time.
I've been on a mission for the perfect small table to pull out when I needed extra space in my living room, and I intended to buy a simple c-table (eyeing the Portica from Room & Board due to ability to customize finishes and constantly checking for ones I loved at Home Goods). I ended up putting off the purchase but, in the end, I ended up with another "c-table," the Clover Accent Table from Grandin Road. I ordered the set on a whim after seeing a 30% off deal expiring in less than 24 hours and the nested tables came a few days later.
Aesthetic-wise, the clover design adds more of a feminine touch and the neutral top and soft metallic finish mean they blend well with my existing palette of gold, cinnamon, sage and cream accents. The tables are tucked away usually in the corner of my dining room (I have an open concept space with dining room and living room adjacent), and I've even added a decorative bowl and plate I received as a gift for my birthday and wanted to display. With an upcoming holiday party and more entertaining in my future, I know they'll get good use.
Is there anything on your home shopping list that you've been look for the "perfect one" of?
