Coffee Table

Coffee Table Hunt

I posted this on Instagram a couple of weeks ago and it seems i’m not the only one that has NEVER had a coffee table. Admittedly it might not be the most riveting of news for some of you, but for others, it struck a chord. View this post on Instagram Hello everyone. Have you all been enjoying my RED HOT #VACCHAT on insta stories? ­čÖä Fear not, I'll be moving on from cordless vacuums to coffee tables shortly as I have a decision to make.

But she just wasn’t feeling this space at all and couldn’t quite work out why. It’s a north facing room, so doesn’t get the best light. Flat white and grey weren’t doing this space any favours. Their plan was to keep it minimal. But it kinda just felt a bit cold and unfinished. The two seating areas felt disconnected and the L shaped sofa was awkward in the space. So how did I make …
