First, the right side of the sofa was sized to fit the relatively short wall (under the painting), so there's little depth for a table.
Second, I hate to hide the Oriental rug's center medallion.
Third, I tried a couple of small tables but they look sort of weird because the medallion makes them look off-center---the tables seemed to compete with the medallion, if that's possible. I found a petite clear glass Italian table called an "Easy Curve," but it's pricey. CB2 makes something similar out of acrylic, but I figured I'd scrape the heck out of that in short order.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
Please add your suggestions for Ronald to the comments below...thanks!
