Stuart loves this iconic glass-and-steel coffee table from mid-century-modern architect Warren Platner calling it design at its best. First introduced in the `60s the table features a base made of curved steel rods and a thick tempered-glass tabletop. Swarz recommends it for its airy feeling and suggests pairing it with a modern sofa or sectional adding that the top is durable and heat- and scratch-resistant making it ideal for a family with kids and for entertaining guests.
Brass-finished iron legs add a touch of metal to this marble-and-wood table that freelance writer Hélène Heath recommends. She says the mix of materials helped tie all the elements of our living room together. The shelf provides bonus storage and a lovely styling opportunity she says meaning your Diptyque candles stacks of The Gentlewoman and a vase of peonies.
For another seating-as-table option try this upholstered ottoman whcih comes recommended from designer Becky Shea. It`s covered in a vintage striped kilim textile that she says adds coziness to a room — as well as a little texture and history. We can imagine placing this in front of a fireplace with all our favorite magazines strewn on top of it.
Because if you can`t have an overload of sparkle at Christmas then when can you? Mix rose gold metallics with blush-hued tableware and team with a simple table runner to recreate this look. (And pssst… that glimmering golden branch running through the middle of the table isn`t a painstaking DIY make it`s actually a pre-lit garland from Lights4fun).
