Sharon's condo has a mixture of furniture that really hits and misses with me--in the best way. Although there are several pieces in her home that typically wouldn't appeal to me, the clever way they've been mixed and matched absolutely works. It has breathed life into furniture pieces I'd normally ignore. Her beach-inspired pieces are perfect examples. I'd normally not like the side/sofa table or her coffee table. But mixed with darker, more modern pieces--and everything being fairly boxy, just really works together. Like, like, like!
Turns out, both her side/sofa table and coffee table are part of the same collection made by Stanely Furniture. Called "Coastal Living Resort," both look quite different from each other, but have a shared color and material palette.
Poor Sharon! This was Season 1--and she'd already had quite a few bad patches with Rusty.
Love the side drawers with the large handles. How often do you see tables with drawers like these? And God bless coffee tables with drawers. Surprise guests? Table's a mess? Shovel it all into the drawers. Voila! Tres Clean.
Am also a fan of the large lower plank that floats on the two X-beams. More space to stash books, etc. Sharon, it's time to ditch the damn Matisse books. We've looked that them for two seasons. YAWN. I like the hammered silver tray though.
And here are some images from the Stanley Furniture Coastal Living Resort collection, presenting the "Windward Dune Cocktail Table":
Stanley Furniture calls this a "contemporary bar pull" and I just it. In fact, I wouldn't mind just having several of this handle--I have some furniture it would be great with.
The Windward Dune Cocktail/CoffeeTable is available only in "weathered pier." Shop around--it's available at several different costs and locations.
