Good Questions: What Coffee Table Would Look Good in our Living Room?

Pin it button
Hello AT,

My beau and I recently moved into our first home together, a rather generous sized 950 sq. ft. loft. We were lucky enough to be able to renovate the space and we've been trying to make the place feel more like a home than the rather bland rectangle leftover from the office conversion (this space was formerly a large carpeted office space with cubicles)...

Right now we have a temporary coffee table from Ikea, but it is much too small for the space. We bought it as an interim measure until we could find something more spectacular. We have a gorgeous walnut vanity cabinet and have been looking for something to complement it (all the other woods tones in the house are a very dark espresso finish as is the floor which is stained concrete) so we were thinking of the Scando table by Offi.

We were also looking at a second hand Saarinen coffee table from a local store, but someone grabbed it up before us. We're a little worried that with a large white table our place might be starting to look a little bland though especially with our light colored rug.

We still have some other longterm improvements to make, like refinishing the dining room table and figure out how to hang some sort of sliding doors (like raydoors) to separate the bedroom instead of curtains. However, before winter arrives we'd like to make our apartment a bit more lively and colourful (We live in Edmonton, Alberta and winters can be a little dreary here). We're open to any suggestions.

Thanks! Raffaella

Anyone?
