Do you remember my search for an affordable and handsome kitchen table, one that can take a lot of beating from 3 kiddos and a slew of guests? See old post here. Most of you voted for this solid oak table from Cost Plus/World Market (yes, really!) — and that is also the one I went for! It was delivered a couple of weeks ago — and I love it!
At Cost Plus
At Home (it is actually a tad more gray than my camera can show). Sorry for my mediocre pictures.
The table easily seats 8 people and is very solid.
I have ordered two original French bistro Tolix chairs to be mixed with my slip covered ones from Ikea. (The Pantone chairs that I wanted at first would have looked totally out of place, I decided). I will show pictures soon.
Lately I have been focusing on a new pendant to go over the table. I REALLY like this lamp from Restoration Hardware. Isn’t is handsome? A little on the pricey side ($895), but since the table was a steal at only $550 (on sale), I feel I can splurge a bit.
But my questions is. Is this light fixture too trendy? Is it part of this retro industrial chic look that I will grow tired off soon? What do you think? I am also thinking it might be too long. Decisions, decisions…
In general I am very excited about our kitchen eating area. I still have a way to go but it feels to me that I am on the right track!
I am equally excited about the mention of Ilse Jacobsen’s boots and my shop over at the fantastic blog Two Ellie. How special is that! I absolutely adore Paula. She is creative and fun, has a great design eye and on top of that she is just a generous and wonderful person. She is yet another blog girl I would like to meet in person.
Look how adorable she is in her new rubber boots! She chose Camel color and I think she found the perfect color for her!
So one stylish kitchen table and one stylish friend! I am very grateful.
Warm hugs to you all.
