finally i get to show you my new coffee table. it's made from a vintage (really old) door. only fifteen similar pieces were made, everyone being unique. it's quite a big, signature piece in my living room now. but i like how it is inviting and generous, and offers unlimited occasions and ways to use it. the first night i had it all to myself, so i put the feet up on the coffee table experimentally, turned the tv on and enjoyed the presence of it while eating cauliflower. not sure how many times i glanced at the table in the process, thinking that it's just what i've needed to feel even more comfortable at home. and i've since envisioned all sorts of events en tour it... like a small party (of maybe 5 people), all seated around it on cushions, the flat lit entirely in soft candle light, serving food that comes in various small bowls...
i will show you a more detailed shot of the silver deer champagne cooler with my first christmas decoration this year in my next post. i'm thrilled - over both, the table and the approaching christmas season, which i use as an excuse to light candles every night. got to go to sleep now, though... see you soon! good night xox
