There is a misconception among homeowners that embracing black means turning the living room into a dark space that is black, black and more black. While this look works in some select homes, a better way forward is to combine that black coffee table with a dark accent wall or even a couch in a matching hue to create a look of homogeneity. Add a rug with hints of black, a few black chairs and maybe a dark pendant or two to make a bold style statement.
If you are a child of the 90s, the idea of mirrored coffee tables would most likely feel both odd and garish. In an era where beige was the color of choice and simple, straight lines along with rigid geometric shapes defined a modern style that quickly became generic, there was really no room for something so sparkly and brilliant. But as with everything else, the circle of fashion and design has once again revived styles such as vintage, retro, Art Deco and even Hollywood Regency. And with this revival, mirrored décor once again found space in homes across the globe.
These Meurice 2-Tier Tables from Jonathan Adler are a blend of Palm Beach style and ’60s French panache. With a faux bamboo design that comes in a polished nickel or antique brass finish, this table is great on the side, or as a coffee table (especially when paired with a friend, as shown below).
