Vintage tables with Chairish

I was contacted earlier this month by Chairish to see if I would be interested in showcasing how I would style a vintage coffee table with books and decor  on my blog.
I told her she at me at vintage and books.
Yes, please.

My home is a home with kids.  Therefore everything pretty is likely broken or inexpensive.  I will rarely splurge on a home decor item just because, well children.  Actually children and an overly playful cat.

Once in awhile I will pick out something when it screams at me, practically begging me to become a part of our home.  I checked out their unique coffee tables here first.  I think what I love most about this site is that every piece has a story and is so rare!

Finally, this French Country Style Carved Table and I would have such a discussion.  I love this table.
It is classy and the perfect combination of materials that wouldn't be too bothered by messy children or dirty socks.

Essentials for me on a coffee table are threefold:
A tray for drinks.  Check.
Books for reading.  Check
And something pretty.  Check.
Home decor

I realize that my style right now isn't fancy or exquisite, but that just isn't realistic with our lifestyle. So what I try to do is bring in beautiful elements that make me happy and let those pieces and the crazy coexist.
And that's a fact.

Make sure you check out Chairish to see their beautiful pieces!
