Shopping for a Coffee Table

Hey guys! I hope y’all have recovered from your food comas and paid off your credit cards from Black Friday because we’re not done shopping. Not quite yet anyway. I need a new coffee table, and I need your input. Well, to be honest I’ve needed a new coffee table for quite some time (since we moved into the house, I knew the existing one wasn’t quite right), but Thanksgiving evening it all came to a head when this little gem was finally unrolled and loved on. Ya, have to admit, I kinda caressed it’s awesomeness for a few minutes an hour or two or three or four (let’s be real). I’ve been lusting over it for years. Ever since my girl Emily Henderson rolled it out for the first time, I kinda went bonkers over it.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved (past tense) my present coffee table in our old place, but it just doesn’t fit in the space in this new house. It’s a 48″ x 48″ monstrosity that has overtaken the TV room. It’s enormous! The Boy and I can roll out a full sushi meal on it and have room to spare. It’s crazy huge (and for sale BTDubs). I loved it at the time because of it’s size, and it’s from Room and Board so you really can’t go wrong. However, in this new space, it must go.

10 Perfect Coffee Table Books

If you’ve been reading House of Hipsters, you know I love to style with a stack of books (usually topped with a small object or vase). As of late, I’ve been styling the house like a mad woman, and I’m running low on reading material. Good heavens, what’s a girl to do? Ummmmmm, ya, go shop for books, duh! And that is exactly what I’ve been doing. I have a few interior design books I’ve been yearning for, but I also like to shake things up. I like topics that reflect the house’s personality (and the people that live there).
