End Tables
May 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I love my end tables. Should I leave them as is..or stain them a darker color to match espresso? They are oak. Please disregard background. I am still working on my window treatments:)

Hi coralandbrown. The lamp tables look truncated (larger at the top) in the photo. Am I seeing that accurately? The finish is a bit dated and the tables are visually very heavy. If you opt to finish them in a darker finish, (consider a dark walnut, similar to the chocolate ultrasuede on the seat cushions) I would consider replacing the cocktail table with something visually lighter. Think metal and glass, metal frame with a re-claimed wood top, etc. A round ottoman on exposed, delicate legs could be nice as well. Red, like the toss pillows in the pic. You could use a small scaled pull-up chair in this room, also. (If I am accurately assessing the photo) Replacing the cocktail table may actually compel you to leave the lamp tables as they are... Good luck with it

Yes the tables are made the way you are seeing them (truncated). Dated?? I like to try and combine various elements if they work (new/old). I will focus on changing out the cofee tablle. Thank you for your suggestions
