Traditional Coffee Tables: Shadow Box Design


Whether you're looking for traditional coffee tables or handcrafted coffee tables, we've got you covered with hundreds and hundreds of choices. When we found the Guildmaster Shadow Box Coffee Table, we immediately thought of the seashore. Why? Maybe it's a winter blues thing, but can't you just see this shadow box filled with shells and pieces of driftwood?

Of course, with its hand-finished antique white finish and nail-head trim, this coffee table would also be a beautiful addition to a farmhouse or shabby chic cottage style living room. But for us, it's all about the coastal cottage feel with a glass covered shadow box lined with woven grass just waiting for tiny treasures washed onto shore by ocean waves.

What's you perfect place for the Shadow Box Coffee Table and what would you showcase under its glass top?

Take Me Away: Accent Pillows Evoke Memories



For those of a certain age, "tourist" pillows still found in vintage stores today, evoke fond memories of trips taken and cities visited. Now, these accent pillows are being updated and marketed as modern pillows with a retro vibe.

Catstudio New York City Pillow is just one of the many designs available. These pillows feature New York City as shown here, but also Chicago, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and even Paris. Each really is a work of art, with hand embroidered city attractions on tea-dyed cotton. Black velvet piping makes the entire pillows pop.

If you don't already have memories of these retro treasures, now you can create your own.

Curvy and Colorful Modern Chaise Lounges


Pantone's new Color of the Year for 2011 Honeysuckle Pink seems to be fueling a new interest in its mother color red. If you're thinking about adding a touch of red to your décor, a bold choice might be one of the colorful modern chaise lounges or casual chaise lounges in StylePath's collection.

The Klaussner Klein Chaise Lounge has it all, brilliant red microsuede fabric upholstery, a beautiful rolled back and curvy arm and stylish wood feet. Comfortable, inviting and perfect for modern library or reading nook, this chaise lounge would also be the perfect way to bring a splash of red into an all white bedroom. Wouldn't it look stunning as a centerpiece for a contemporary dressing room?

Metal Console Tables with an Edge


We're seeing a lot of what's being called industrial chic in interior design. Industrial chic furniture is rustic with and edgy feel. You'll find some modern console tables, more specifically metal console tables that fit into this new chic style with a twist.

The Designer's Edge Console Table with Maple Veneers and Metal Legs is one of those—a sleek modern table with just a hint of industrial in its cool tapered legs. The maple veneer top is distressed contemporary, while the finished metal legs feel rustic but with a modern vibe. We think this console table would be a look terrific in the entry or breakfast room. It's the perfect way to venture into the world of industrial chic. We all agree that this one is a keeper. What do you think?
