As you might have seen in my bedroom decor post, I like dark, minimal but glamorous and kind of sexy. So I thought I would share my coffee table with you guys. It isn’t completely what I want…there are one or two changes I will make when I find exactly what I am looking for (and get the Tom Ford coffee table book). We don’t ever plan on having kids over so the playboys are completely appropriate and on trend. The coffee table is unfortunately (for everyone else) unavailable because it is my grandmas from years ago. She had a modern living room and offered it to us because she knew we were looking for a coffee table and it ended up working perfectly. We may paint the concrete ends to match our walls but haven’t decided yet. We also have a cow skin rug under the table that was a little over $300 and we got that from Value City Furniture but I am not sure if they would still have it!
I have some playboys spread out on the coffee table with what I feel is aesthetically pleasing. I have two vintage ones that I ordered off of Etsy and then a friend of mine sent me a stack as well. I am also thinking of doing a stack of them with a piece of decor on top in the entertainment stand when we find the perfect one. We have really been taking our time picking out pieces of furniture because we want something we love instead of something we kind of like just to fill the space.
I had all of the coffee table books before we moved in (among a million others). I am still shopping around for one or two other ones but for now these work. The hot pink one is a tad aggressive with the hot pink but it is actually the history of rock music and I am obsessed with it so that is my favorite one. I always find when my inspiration is down, looking through coffee table books helps me break any sort of block I have. Coffee table books are available at HomeGoods but if you want one of the good ones, you are going to have to shop around online or on Amazon. The marble skull is also from HomeGoods.
Now this part of the coffee table is still under construction. I plan on finding a black marble tray to put everything on and one more glass holder and candle. The frame and coasters are from HomeGoods (sorry I don’t have more links for everyone). The balloon dog is available in tons of colors and other sizes on Amazon. The Prada Marfa I just printed out on card stock (as you can see I am obsessed with Gossip Girl’s iconic artwork). The candles you can either find at HomeGoods or Michael’s. I will post an updated coffee table when I complete the living room!
Now my favorite of everything decor wise is my glass chess set (and yes…I do know how to play chess). I found one that could honestly be the exact same one my mom got me and its is super cheap! Now I am dying for the Jonathan Adler glass chess set but I will have to wait until I have $800 sitting around. Well that is it! I really love interior design so if you ever have any random questions about where to find something honestly ask me because I might know where to look. Let me know what you think!
