Occasional Tables I

I can't possibly fit in as many side/occasional tables as I would like into our little house (or into this post so have called it Occasional Tables I as have more to share some other time). Am just a little bit bitter as they may very well be my favourite piece of furniture. I'm not crazy about their older sibling the coffee table but I LOVE them. The tiniest of table can make the biggest of impacts, beautiful and practical. I think you should be able to reach out and set a cup down from every seat in your living room and these little pieces are the perfect way to do it I say. Sadly I am not practicing what I preach as I think our little house will burst at the seams if I try and squeeze one more thing in but may I just say, if I can get my hands on one of these from oomph, I'll be giving it a red hot go!
Be still my beating heart!

Pottery Barn #1

Pottery Barn #2 (my favourite of the three from PB)

Pottery Barn #3, something about the shape of this one I like.

Somewhere for Betty to put her cigarettes while debriefing with her shrink on Mad Men.

A friend recently introduced me to Horchow where you can find this lovely one.

The Illusion Table, John Brauer's interesting take on a well known look.

Another one I am desperate to own and would find space for!

I have managed to squeeze one of these into our house.

While we can only see the top of Charlotte York's tablewe know the legs will be just as beautiful (you will get to know that I'm a little bit obsessed with SATC).

One of the many things I like about this reading corner from Something's Gotta Give is the table.

...and the one on the end of the sofa here.

In fact, is safe to say, I want everything in this last room (OK if I'm being completely honest, maybe not the clock or the painting...or the shell). There you have it.
