Ask Casa: A Table for These Chairs

Dear Casa,

I have two amazing chairs that need a coffee table to sit in front of them and I am absolutely stumped as to what would work with them. I've just had the chairs reupholstered in a silver-grey velvet. Any suggestions?

Hi Ava Gardner,

You're right—those chairs are amazing! This room looks great as is with your mirrored console and silvery taupe color scheme, so you have a lot to work with.

My immediate thought was that you should go with something round to mimic the feminine curves of your wonderful tufted chairs. Your hardwood floors are also magnificent, so a glass-topped table would be an excellent way to highlight the floors. The room also has a French Art Deco vibe going on with the mirrored console and lavish textiles, so it would be nice to echo that in your table. There's a lot going on already in the room, but in a good way, so your table doesn't necessarily need to be a statement piece, but just something that brings the other great elements of the room together.

Ideally, I'm picturing a round or elliptical glass top table with a finished metal base, with tapered legs and a French Deco feel. While you can't always get what you want, I've come up with suggestions that will get you (hopefully) there.
