Repro Thursday

I love the adaptability of the garden stool.  Is it a seat?  A stool?  A side table?  A garden decoration?  Yes!  It is all of these things.  They are pretty easy to come across at your local Home Goods, but if you’re looking for one-stop shop that has a variety of styles, check out the garden stools at Wisteria.  Here are some of my favorites:

Gold Geometric

 

Carved Stool

 

Chinese Garden Stool

 

Sunny Stool

 

Indian Rings Stool

 

Right now, stools are up to 30% off at Wisteria.  (This post is not sponsored).

I have a stunning piece to share with you today.

Lucite Glass Coffee Table Vintage 1

This baby is thick.  Thick glass (3/4″) and thick lucite bases (1.5″).  The glass top measures 66″ long and 28 1/4″ wide.  The bases are 15 5/8″ tall.  Let’s look at it some more!  I love it!

The glass has normal surface wear for its age.  Overall it is in great condition.  The lucite bases do have a few chips in them.  There are a total of four bases, and three of the bases have a small chip (nothing that takes away from the “wow” of this table).

One of the cool features of this table is that the base is comprised of four separate pieces that can be configured any way you choose.  Each base is a “V” with one longer side (kind of like half of a “W”!).

This table is substantial, and really is beautiful.  I’ve staged it in my own living room, and even my husband said “Wow! That looks great!”  (Ha ha… I have him paying attention to coffee tables now!  Does that mean I have to start paying attention to football??!).

Shall we look at some other lucite and glass coffee tables?

The square shape of this one is neat – and lovely paired with the natural fiber rug.

Fun geometry on these two – similar to my find.

Interesting way to store your “poufs”.

Terrific shape.

I love how this table is mixed with the furniture – some very traditional pieces and then an unexpected table!

I think the lesson here is that lucite and glass can go with any decor!  I personally love a clear coffee table.  My glass waterfall table is perfect in my space – it really opens up a room.  And, I love how you can see a rug under the table.

This beauty is available in the Pursuing Vintage Shop.  Close up photos and more detail available upon request.

Have a wonderful weekend!  I hope its relaxing and productive at the same time – that’s what I’m personally hoping for!

I absolutely LOVE connecting a person with a new piece that they love.  Just today the lucite bar cart got a new home, and I think the buyers were thrilled with their purchase.  Yay!  And Saturday a table that I had nicknamed “The Beast” found its new home with Luci.  The table was so large and heavy that I questioned if I would ever find the right home for it.  The table is a vintage Henredon oak mirror-top dining table, with two additional leaves.  It is such a spectacular table, but also very large.  My home certainly could not showcase it properly.  Thankfully Luci has incredible taste and vision, and brought “The Beast” to her home, where it looks amazing!

Kerry at Design du Monde gave this beautiful faux bamboo table a new home.  It fits right in, and looks like it has always been there!  Perfect!

Kerry's Faux Bamboo Coffee Table

For me, seeing these pieces in their new homes is part of why I do this.  In a way, I’ve had a hand in giving these pieces a second life (or sometimes third or fourth).  Luci’s dining table can once again be the center of entertaining and great meals & conversation.  Kerry’s coffee table can be a focal point in a room once more.  These are pieces with years behind them, and many more in front of them.

If you’ve purchased something from Pursuing Vintage and would like to share a photo of the piece in its new home, I’d be so grateful!  Just email the photo to kristen@pursuingvintage.com and let me know if its okay to use it on the site.
