After the red chair fiasco, there was another piece of furniture that didn’t quite work – the dining room table. The Bradshaw table from Room and Board is modeled after Carrie’s coffee table from Sex and the City. I had seen it in the store and loved it, so when I saw it at the Outlet, I immediately snatched it up despite the light colored wood. I prefer walnut and dark woods but I love the table so much that I didn’t care. The table has a 45 inch diameter and comfortably seats 4 maybe 5 people. Our dining room could comfortably fit a 20 person table. Again, whoops! The table is not nearly the right scale for the room.
Due to a little interesting quirk of German housing (no closets!), we will not be replacing my beloved Bradshaw. I figure, if I love something but it doesn’t work, who cares? I’m the one living with it.
