I'm not sure what iteration of mine and Joseph's living room we are on, but I think maybe it's three. The new couch is in, and we decided to get a coffee table that was easier to move around and get beat up than the antique chest we had been using. The chest is my first antique that I got, so I want it to last for as long as possible (it's now at the end of our bed. Pics tomorrow). Since we (I use the term "we" loosely here. Thanks for the beautiful couch, darling!) had just splurged on the couch, we went super economical on the coffee table. And you know what that means: a trip to Ikea!
The new little guy is simple and glossy, and I love the brightness next to the dark couch.
Plus it's super lightweight, so we can shift it around easily.
|Oh LazyBoy, you wonderful, comfortable, eyesore of a chair.|
Unless you're a bajillionaire (and even then, really), I honestly think you should always have a mix of investment pieces and less expensive items. It adds a fun element even to more serious rooms.
I mean, we got two for my nephews, but I can't lie to you; I totally cuddled with one most of Sunday afternoon.
