The Great Coffee Table Search

24 Feb

Now that our new sofa has arrived (I’ll post more about my search on that) I’m out to find the perfect coffee table to go with my new look with also keeping in mind my small budget.

I knew I definitely wanted a clear table because our space is so small I didn’t want another heavy piece of furniture.

I was actually originally going to buy a glass table off craigslist and paint the base but then I saw this

Never seen them? Same here until a couple of months ago..who knew!

Here’s a little info about them from zenedy

The Lucite Coffee Table

Despite it’s very modern appearance, Lucite is not a new addition to the furniture industry. Found also in the fashion and home décor markets, Lucite has actually been around for decades, and some of the most sought after pieces are not, in fact, new, but rather vintage antiques from the mid-1900’s. The sleek appearance of Lucite coffee tables make them stand out, but what truly appeals to most people is the way that they visually expand the space. Since Lucite coffee tables are clear or merely tinted, they provide the functionality of the coffee tables, without the appearing to subtract space.

Nice huh?

Anyways after I fell in love I realized these babies aren’t cheap. They go for about $500 to $5,000!

But I was determined to find some options in budget so here’s what I came up with

CB2

Overstock not to fond of this design…I’m not convinced on the magazine racks. yuck! Funny thing is I actually saw this one in person when I went to pick up my cane back chairs from some chick off craigslist. It surprisingly looks way WAY better in person.

eBay

I even found this one, not a Lucite but still gorgeous.

So what do you think? Do you have a favorite?

    I like the last one also — is it glass? It has a nice green sheen to the edges that will reflect sunlight much nicer. Also, less scratching from kids. All the best in your home. Vanessa Dawne
