Leslie End Table c/o Hayneedle
It will soon be my one-year anniversary in this apartment and I’m still decorating the place. It takes time, you know? And since this is my first place entirely on my own and I have full creative authority, I’ve been really considering each design decision. I tend to decorate in spurts- I bought quite a few things when I first moved in, and then there was another round in the fall before I held my first big gathering.
One of my favorite pieces in the apartment is this gold side table from Hayneedle. I spent quite a few hours browsing around for an affordable side table and this one stood out to me as soon as I saw it. My coffee table is the very sleek, modern, acrylic table from CB2, so I thought it would be nice to contrast that with something with a more vintage feel. I love color of this side table- instead of a bright, in-your-face gold, which I sometimes find jarring, it’s an antiqued, burnished gold. I also think the mirrored top is so pretty, especially when it catches the sunlight. Size was also important to me. I didn’t want something too bulky that wouldn’t fit in the space, or too heavy that would ruin the light, airy feel that I’m going for. This table is a bit delicate and dainty, but still practical and not too fussy.
Now that I’ve waxed on about how much I love this table, I thought I’d share a few affordable side tables that have caught my eye!
Which one is your favorite?
