After three year’s in our house, we have are slowly replacing our Ikea furniture with more permanent pieces. The one at the center of our home — and indeed, the center of our lives it seems — is our Strind coffee table. It serves us well, offsetting a dark brown leather couch with its round white surfaces and delicate metal legs. We love the bottom shelf for stacking our current selection of magazines and children’s books (both of which seems to pile up effortlessly). The wheels make it easy to push aside when it’s time for one Isadora’s gymnastic demonstrations or we just want to kick our feet up with ease. But, it is getting wobbly.
To keep the balance in the room, we’d like to stick with white and round. We’ve found a few options. Which one do you like?
The Sybil table reminds me of the 70s rec rooms from my youth. It’s pretty groovy, but maybe too heavy? As a bonus, the top level swivels for optimal drink poising. $550 at modernfurniture.com
A high gloss and metal table is the most elegant of the bunch. $565 at bastores.com
Classic modern may be the way to go. The white version of the design stable seems sensible. $313 at inmodehome.com
What do you think? Any suggestions I should consider?
