{layering with glam little side tables}



I love the look of a well layered room, and I adore the versatility a glamorous little side table can bring to the mix. You can move it here and there, in front of a bookcase, fireplace or chair. I love accordian style, greek key motifs, or a classic twig table. Make it brass or gold and my heart sings :) What's my favorite way to sport this look, you ask? Plonked right in front of a sofa. That's right, not sitting beside the sofa, not off and out of the way ... right in front of the sofa. Like it's ready be used by guests for a session of tea and biscuits ...

This was great. I have a tiny table that I was not sure how to place...you got me thinking.

I love these little guys. I'd like a twig one - I think it would still work with my seaside style without looking too formal :)

Love the idea of using little tables that you can move around. Always great to plop it right in front of a sofa....perfect place for a cocktail...or tea if that's your game.
