We blog a lot of designer furniture, but we also blog affordable options. Not everyone can own a Saarinen table, but luckily (or unluckily as you may see it) the tulip table is an often-copied shape. We put together two rooms: one that splurges on designer furniture and one that saves with less expensive styles...
Besides the tulip-style table and the color palette, the thread running through these rooms includes Orla Kiely's stem print wallpaper (and dahlias to go on the table). To splurge, paper the whole room. To save, use it on a small accent wall.
