Time to Set the Table.

I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect round dining table for my condo. The dining space has its limitations – it’s only 8’3″ in width in which at least two feet of that is required as a walk through to the kitchen, powder room, and laundry (all located along the right side opposite the windows). The length of 19′ is more than sufficient for a Dupont Circle condo (more recent pictures to come). And on top of that there are other limitations – like a tight budget.

Since this photo was taken, the walls have been painted a pretty Ashley Gray and Edgecomb Gray. The ceiling currently hoists a beautiful modern crystal chandelier from Lumens.com, and the windows are beautifully covered with cord-free natural grass romans from JCP.com. An extendable rectangle table from Crate & Barrel is also in here and takes up a lot more room then we would prefer (anyone interested in buying it?).

A while back, I posted some round dining tables that could have been in the running for the replacement. They are equally beautiful, and somewhat along the lines of what I required. The search id over.  Last weekend, my honey and I walked into Room & Board on 14th Street, and walked out with a delivery date for the 45″ Round Bradshaw Dining Table and a sense of excitement (hello! I love decorating, especially bringing new things into my own home! Love it!).

This round dining table has a fantastic, sophisticated, and sturdy design. The organic shape will keep it fresh, the solid walnut wood construction will make it last, and a pedestal base will keep the lower area of the room less crowded. It will look wonderful with our timeless clear Louis chairs and universal Moroccan diamond motif area rug. We considered a skinnier table but all of this made the room look like a serious bowling alley. Now off to select a new ceiling pendant and wall sconces. Then shelving and storage. Then… I could keep going and going.
