Mix it Up

The 19th century mahogany breakfast table in the middle of this room provides a bit of warmth and character to a room otherwise furnished in cool metal and plastic furniture.  Aside from the contrast of age, the designer makes you really take note of his brave move by selecting  a well-worn table with lots of patina.  Whether it was planned or flippant and spontaneous, it is very effective making the room feel humble, nostalgic and comfortable.  Grab your favorite magazine, a croissant and a cup of coffee and enjoy the turn of the centuries!
