The Friday Five :: Coffee Tables

Woohoo!! We've made it to Friday and the weekend, meaning we can prop our feet up and relax a bit. A comfortable sofa is clearly the anchor in your living space, but let's not forget it's all-important sidekick, the coffee table. Whether you're going for a glam statement piece or something softer to gather around, there are so many styles to choose from. This week, we've curated our current favorites and the ones that, in all of our constant furniture scanning and searching, have been the stand-outs.

Gold Glam Gorgeous

Friday Five Gilt Coffee Table

This beauty has it going on! Not only is it a cool shape, but the finish is a hand-applied gold leaf giving it a special dimension. Though at first, you may feel the gold is a little bold (see what I did there?), the openness of it keeps it light and far from overwhelming. And then let's not forget...that price! Sliding in just under $400, it's one of our most affordable choices.

Reclaimed Rectangle

Friday Five Levi Coffee Table

Crafted of reclaimed walnut and supported by sleek slices of blackened steel, this table is a show stopper. At 60" long, it's perfect in front of a three-seater sofa and its heft makes it a durable piece for heavily used family rooms.

Concrete Cube

Friday Five Parish Cube Coffee Table

I just love cubes! They're so versatile and this one caught our attention right away because it's unlike anything we've seen lately. At 24" square, you can bunch two, three or four of these to fill the space as needed and this style comes with the bonus of being outdoor friendly. Though it would be lovely with a navy sofa (what isn't, right??), I would love to see this in an all-white space, adding just a touch of subtle color and texture.

Organic Round

Friday Five Expressionist Coffee Table

It's always interesting for me to research furniture design and see styles that were once considered avant garde are now considered classics. This lovely coffee table uses hand finished mango wood to create an organic Noguchi-inspired base. Topped with clear round glass, it becomes a light and airy statement piece and would be equally at home in a modern setting or updating a more traditional space. 

Cozy & Tufted

Friday Five Jesse Coffee Table

I would be remiss if I didn't include an upholstered option. This ottoman-slash-coffee table has a wonderful scale at 51"x35"x18.5", a bottom shelf which is so useful for books & games and a pretty oatmeal linen fabric top. We have this piece in stock in our showroom at Windmark Beach and are in love. Unlike many upholstered pieces that are a bit too soft, this one has a more firm feel which means you can easily add a decorative tray or set up a board game.

The Friday Five :: Favorite Flat Woven Rugs

This week, I'm highlighting a few of my favorite flat woven rugs. These beauties are indispensable in the beach house world, handily standing up to sandy foot traffic all the while keeping their casual good looks intact. Typically, I think of stripes or solids, which lend them a decided "beach house" feel, but I'm also sharing a long-time favorite that steps up to the plate when you need a more traditional or slightly formal style. Other than the durability that the tight weave provides, I also LOVE the fact that most of them are reversible. This not only doubles the life of the rug, but also can save your toucas in the event your bestie spills a little red after dinner and you have your mother-in-law coming over for brunch the next day. So let's get to it:

Wool-Blend Stripe

Nags Head Flat Woven

Though this may look like a sisal, it's actually woven from a blend of wool, polyester & nylon not only making it much softer, but also more stain resistant than a true natural material would be. This style is available in sizes up to 8X11' and in another colorway, but I really like this two-tone natural version because it mimics a natural so well.

Wool Stripe

Cape Cod Flat Woven

These flat wovens from Jaipur are my all-time go-to favorites and with good reason. This navy version with a thin, off-white stripe is so versatile. Great on its own, it also works well when layering. The 100% wool is super durable and easy to clean. This particular style is available in several colors and sizes up to 12X15! Best of all, these are in-stock and ship out in less than two days.

Cotton Stripe

Birmingham Cotton Flat Woven

Dash and Albert cotton flat wovens are the epitome of coastal cool. While not as easy to keep clean, they are comfy under foot and give a space an easy, breezy feeling. Dash has tons of stripes, but we think this black & white version is just a little edgy and would be beautiful paired with a natural or reclaimed pine table. That combo is so good!

Indoor-Outdoor

Elizabeth Green Flat Woven

If you follow me regularly, then you know that navy blue is my first love. What you may not know is that my second love may very well be this acid green/yellow {see logo, wink wink}. While the color is what caught my eye first, the construction of the rug sealed the deal. It's like seeing a handsome guy and then realize he's also a volunteer with Doctors Without Borders. This rug looks and feels just like wool, but is made of 100% PET (read up about that here).  Not only are you giving Mother Earth a little love, but it's outdoor friendly. When it needs a refresh, just vacuum, lightly brush with fresh or soapy water, or spray with a hose. Doesn't get much easier than that.

Classic Poser

Kolos Jaimak Flat Woven

Though this baby may look like a classic oriental, it's actually a ninja reversible flat woven that is not only perfect for your dining room at home, but lovely in your coastal home when you want to step things up a bit. I used a similar version in my friend Jessica's home - which is their full-time residence, just at the beach. It's held up for years and she has two lively little boys that put any rug to the test.
