Celebrating early

A recent purchase was delivered yesterday, and it feels like Christmas a month early. I had searched for months to find a table the same height and diameter as the one on the opposite side of the sofa...something of a similar material and a similar color without being a matching pair. The search had proven more difficult than I had expected, until I finally found it on the Design Within Reach website.

Here's the little Jens Risom side table that I picked out for our family room. I'm even happier with it than I expected to be.

And while we're on the subject of my love for Jens, here's a photo of one of my favorite vintage pieces (and one of the first I ever bought)...a classic Risom credenza, which backs up to the sofa.

    1. Thanks! I'm really pleased with it, Sheila. I think you would be too. It's sturdy and versatile. Till I got it, I hadn't even thought about the fact that it could be used in front of the sofa as a "TV table"...perfect for a snack or a laptop.

    1. Thanks! Things are coming together slowly but surely at this house. I'm trying not to be my usual compulsive self, trying to get everything done in a month. :)

    1. Thanks! The fireplace will get our attention next, now that it's finally getting chilly. The previous owners capped the gas, so we need to get a plumber out to install a burner. I think we're going to use fireplace rocks instead of gas logs...still trying to decide exactly what we want.

  4. Happy early Christmas to you! Can Santa and his elves deliver one to my house - I've been a good girl! I love how the base can nestle around the sofa leg, great design! Enjoy. Cheers - CT

    1. I bet Santa will bring you just about anything you ask for if you sit on his knee and ask him sweetly! :)

  5. Your house is looking beautiful. The table is perfect there. Quick unrelated question for you...my blog posts from years back are showing up on the blog roll. I don't know why they are suddenly reposting. I don't know how to stop it. Has this happened to you before?

    1. Thanks, Jamie. That's really strange that old posts are popping up. I've never had that happen to me, and I don't know what could be causing it. I'll ask around, and if anyone I know has had that happen, I'll let you know.

    2. Thanks Dana. It is very strange. It has taken on a life of its own!

  6. Interesting this table has the same open circle design as the E 1027 designed by Eileen Gray in 1927.

    1. Definitely very similar, but I like the warmer materials in this design. I'm not much of a chrome and glass person.
