What Houzz contributors are saying:
Dining tables can also serve other purposes if we think slightly outside the box. This small, round dining table in a study is great for games, homework and crafts, as well as eating and drinking. What an inventive alternative to a regular desk!
What about provenance? Provenance is proof of where a particular piece came from. Proof could include purchase receipts, documents from auction houses, professional appraisals, photographs and historic records.Generally, provenance is provided only for higher-value or rare antiques. Having this documentation is important if you ever plan to resell the item and can also be helpful for insuring it.
4. Use an antique table. Your study or library might not be in use all day, but rather might be the place where several family members read, do homework or work quietly. If so, you don't need to stick with the traditional rectangular desk — opt for a round antique library table. Here, the large Victorian windows, fitted bookshelves and lovely table give a very traditional feel, but the light, bright colors add a modern edge.
