After a lot of back and forth, craigslist hunting, vintage store shopping, sample sale site luck, etc. I’ve arrived at a slightly modified (but even more amazing) version of my new dining area plan.
Check out the initial plans and post here.
I really wanted a marble tulip table all along but didn’t think I could ever find one in my price range, so I opted for something less expensive. Until I stumbled upon this beauty for a very reasonable price at a vintage shop in DC:It’s an oval shape and even more perfect for my revised dining area plans. A couple weeks ago, I started stalking the Joss and Main sales for these chairs but they’ve been sold out forever and I figured they’d never come back in stock… but last week I luckily snagged a set of 2 for only $165! This set normally retails for $475+. I am beyond thrilled for these chairs to arrive this week.
Rather than getting four chairs, I’ve decided to go with a longer bench on the other side of the table. I’m currently on the hunt for something neutral and affordable that will compliment the table and chairs without being too overbearing. These are a few of my current favorites:
It will all be coming together in a few weeks, so stay tuned!
PS: My current dining set is still for sale, so if any DC area locals are interested, check it out here.
