Tall tables in the living room

Been flip-flopping for years about whether or not to bring a taller table into our living room instead of the typical low coffee table. I like that they’re a bit more utilitarian and that we could pull our chairs around and play games or whatever. I had an antique drum table in storage that I was going to put in my booth at Jackson Square, but I had Dave bring it in last night just to test it out and see how it looks.

On a related note, I love vintage silver bowls and trays. I grab them whenever I see them for a good price. They make great catchalls for things like remote controls and mail. I don’t even bother polishing them because I think the patina looks pretty.
