Do you know...
that one of the first pieces of furniture to be acquired when setting up a home is a table?
It invites everyone to come together at once into a space.
It will be of the most important pieces we will have.
Also, one of the most used pieces &longest kept.
A table isn't just 4 legs and a top sitting in a space...
I see it as
Especially a vintage table.
A vintage table...
hears the stories of family & friends
who have lingered there long after the meal was over and the dishes were cleared.
It holds all our firsts.
It holds the warmth of those who have graced it.
Nostalgic moments of laughter & tears over the years and sometimes lifetimes.
Those warm sweet reminders of times we hold dear.
Your table reflects your style as well.
Simple . Sturdy . Industrial
Primitive yet beautiful.
A little over the top & fun.
Perhaps an heirloom table that has been passed around the family.
One of my most treasured heirloom antiques is my grandparents first table. It is small with two leaves that fold down. The bottom the table has the shipping label with their names & address on it!
Well over 100 years old yet still sturdy.
A significant piece that holds our family stories.
Someday I will pass on their sweet table to my family.
My Design tip:
A vintage table is always my first choice of recomendation. Choose wisely for a table that reflects your personal style. Don't worry about the imperfections if it's vintage, those are the wrinkles that it has earned. Also, you will be salvaging the memories of someones family.
A beautiful Saturday to you!
