Our basement reno has been at a standstill for the last week. I know in my last post I said we were getting the concrete poured that day, but late the same morning we found out the pump truck was broken and here we are about a week later still waiting on a truck to pump the concrete! I'm crossing my fingers that it will be poured soon. In the meantime, I have had lots of time to think about the decor for the basement.
Our basement will have a really large rec room down there which will need a big sofa or sectional and our plan has always been to move the Saarinen tulip coffee table from our living room to the basement. This means that I am in the market for a new coffee table/have an excuse to look at coffee table options. I know this purchase may be a ways off still, but it's fun to look at some options in the meantime. I would like to get something that I will be able to keep forever and possibly hand down to one of the boys if they ever may want it. Below are a few options I'm considering. They're all Scandinavian or have a Scandinavian feel which I think will go well with my style and with my goal of trying to create a home that will teach my children about their heritage.
1. Eames Wire Base Low Table/ 2. &Tradition Hoof Table SW1/ 3. Hay Bella Coffee Table/ 4. Muuto Around Coffee Table/ 5. Hay Tray Table/ 6. Normann Copenhagen Tablo Table
I've also gathered a few inspirational pictures of each of the tables below. I love how many of these tables come in a few colour options and sizes allowing them to be paired together. Many of them are also really versatile in that they could easily be used as side tables as well. I chose mostly natural wood, white, grey and black since they would be the most versatile in my space, but if you click the links to the manufacturers above, you may be surprised at how many colour and sometimes wood choices there are.
Now I have a really tough decision to make. At least I have some time to make it while the basement is being finished. :) One thing to keep in mind though, is that many of these types of pieces take weeks to get in so I may be able to make the decision a little sooner? Which table do you like best?
