Q: I recently purchased the Andaman desk and console combo from Overstock. I plan to mix these carb furnishings with some protein, so I've shopped at home for a fabulous 19th century bergere chair to use as accent seating. The desk set is asian, the chair is french (always a lovely combination, thank you, French Indochina). Now I'm stuck on finding the right side table for the chair. I'd like something to provide a sophisticated contrast with the chinoiserie aesthetic so it's not so over the top. My budget is up to $300.00.
Note: the bergere chair in the photo is not mine, just a close proximation. By the way, I'd like to add that Overstock's rubberwood self-assembled furnishings from Malaysia are really a spectacular buy when you consider price, build quality, and aesthetics. You can do better on any one of these points, but you'd be hard pressed to get all three on demand, delivered for $3.00, with an excellent return policy.
