furniture friday: the antidote to the boring side table

Some­times I think if I see another bor­ing square wooden side table, I will run scream­ing in the streets! There are so many cre­ative options avail­able to host a book and a bev­er­age, why set­tle for the mun­dane? Here's a roundup of some lively options it would be hard to tire of.

This is sim­ply exquis­ite, from Rose Tar­low Mel­rose House:

An excit­ing twist of style from Sher­rill:

Tech­ni­cally this one is almost square, and par­tially wood, but at least a light-year from bor­ing! From Edward Fer­rell + Lewis Mittman

The Syrah table can­not hold a book, but keeps your wine in style! From

What do you think? Ready to skip the plain side table in favor of some­thing a lit­tle jazzier?

light my fire…from baker

This one is a show­stop­per! The Christal Chan­de­lier from Baker's Arbus Col­lec­tion is lean and nar­row, per­fect for a small space with high ceil­ings. The can­dle bulbs sit within a crown of crys­tal. The fix­ture is 43.75" long with a 13.5" diam­e­ter. Stunning!

And another lovely piece from the same col­lec­tion, the Coupelle Chan­de­lier. It's an intrigu­ing col­lec­tion of shapes that form a har­mo­nious whole.
