Black is back—was it ever really gone? These stunning tables are sure to be your new favourite pieces of furniture, plus they’re ever so useful. Like regal B&W photographs, each one is a classic that will never go out of style.
We all know what black is for in design: making a statement. A gorgeous lace nightie, a sauve tux, or inky high-heels with red soles, it’s a mystery how something so dark is so good at standing out! If you want to bring some of that authority into your home there’s no better way to do it than with a black table, a natural focal point to any room and a practical necessity.
If you’re looking to feel like a boss at home, you’re going to need a boss desk. An electrifying orange and black number is just the thing to get you kicking ass; oh, and it might help with your posture a bit too. For this colour scheme, we’d recommend a chair in either pure white, for a sexy contrast, or a muted yellow, to totally get your creative juices flowing, and we’re big fans of the latest in ergonomic designs, to keep you sitting pretty so to speak.
Of course, there is no table more important than the one you feast at, so if your dining room is looking a bit drab we’d definitely recommend a quick sprucing up. For easy clean-up, a table finished with slate or painted tin is going to be best, try to balance out this hard surface with wood or plastic legs to keep this space feeling balanced. Sizing is important too and it’s one of the reasons we advise refreshing your seating at the same time as your table. Chairs that fit perfect with an old table may now seem bulky and out of place or diminutive. Measure your dining room carefully to ensure guests will have plenty of room to flow around it while getting up to refill their wine glasses or freshen up.
