Vintage on the Table


The Table. The Vintage.

Hobnail Bowl offered by ThirdShift


First you need a table. One with four legs. Add fresh red fruit. Add red fruit to a vintage bowl. Enjoy a meal at the table. Let the usual clutter round the beauty of the bowl.

Hobnail Lantern Lamp from SeasideRoseCreations
Another table. A small one (with legs, yes). For a glass lantern lamp, an antique. Add a vintage blue plate. A place for mail and love notes. Admired everyday.

Japanese Plate from vagabondmerchant







Faceted Perfume Bottle from InaMaeVintage






Just one more table. By the bed. Holds your smartphone. Favorite perfume bottle, and an old, painted pitcher. Add flowers and romance. (And four legs.)

Cafe Au Lait Bowl from lefrenchshop
Conch Shell Bowls from VintageRetrievers
When you add vintage to the table, there is no selfish statement, only pleasure for all. No casual decoration, but part of everyday living, in the kitchen, the entryway, the bedroom.

The vintage table is the center furnishing in our home. They are in every room.  Some of them are crates or trunks, or old, wonderful, industrial pieces, and some of desired designs of the past.

Great story! I am obsessed with little tables! I just brought some in from the garage and moved the other ones around, so useful!

Great post! I think vintage bowls and vases add interest to any room and I love the ideas you've posted. I like to use vintage bowls to hold keys, office supplies, fruit, silverware for parties, small candies - the list goes on. And of course, unique and interesting tables are works of art, too! Fabulous finds!

Wonderful and inspiring post!

Fantastic post!! Though I do disagree with one statement. I believe a vintage piece on a table (with legs, yes) can surely make a statement, a very good one at that:)

Wonderful post. I love "small" tables - always drawn to them at estate sales and antique shops. Great collection of fabulous finds.

I have an issue with tables. I have two in my "studio" and will squeeze in a third soon, four in the bedroom, two in the dining room and don't make me count what's in the living room. The more tables there are, the more I can collect and display on them. Inspiring blog!

I can honestly say that besides being a chairaholic It's safe to say I'm a tableaholic too. My favorites are 4 matching shabby chic painted wooden tables with turned legs from an old Upstate NY Hotel that's long gone. But I've got the tables. I never know where to put them, along with all the other tables around here. But somehow, don't you get the sense that a table is a member of the family? Like an odd uncle who never leaves and is always kind of in the way... but hey, he comes in handy when you need him!

Love the post... and love these tables! That little folk art number caught my eye!
