On Monday, we looked at sink skirts. Today, how about the clasic table skirt? Another chic way to use a gorgeous fabric. And you can have one custom made in any shape or size to fit a space. Can’t find the right table? Have a table skirt made! Problem solved. A lot of the table skirts that we’ve designed for clients include shelves underneath for storage.
I especially love these first two patterned table skirts. Notice how they are tailored with pleats but the pattern of the fabric still lines up perfectly — that’s the work of a good seamstress.
They told me that it would arrive at the end of February. And then I got an email from West Elm saying the backorder was pushed back until the end of April. I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get it :( I have not had a coffee table in my apartment. Ever. I’ve only lived in it for 8.5 months). I have been focusing on trying to be smart and waiting for the right piece. And I thought I found it. So please, West Elm, send me my table!
Needless to say it is no longer available even for backorder (what a shame!). I placed the order in February when it was on sale. However, the Foxed mirror side table is still available and just as pretty!

If I had a dining room, I would have a dining room table. If I had all the money in the world, I would have a Saarinen table. That is two big IFs. Eero Saarinen was a famous furniture designer for Knoll, where the table became available in 1956. And he was obviously a genius because these tables are recognized and wanted by almost everyone today. You can literally put one in the most traditional space or the most contemporary space and it will look fantastic.
Unfortunately, the dining table costs about $7,000 (and that’s just for the 78″ oval), which is why I need all the money in the world to not feel guilty about buying one (and I can’t afford it). And let’s face it, if I have all the money in the world, I would probably have a pretty big dining room, so I’m going to need the 96″ oval :)
