Skirted Tables: Client Inspiration

Thursday, June 21, 2012

A new client of mine is looking for ways to inject freshness into her living room.  Most of the furniture/decor is neutral.  She currently has a skirted round table between to loveseats and I think this would be a great place to have a little fun.
These tables are super cheap.  You can find them at Bed, Bath, & Beyond for under $20.  And there must be a million and twelve different ways to trick them out with fabric & trim.  Just use your imagination.

  1. I should have bit my lip when I railed against my mom for having skirted table because I recently went out and bought one for my den: http://meetmeinphiladelphia.blogspot.com/2012/04/now-debuting-my-den.html

    It's covered with an off-white burlap that keeps it feeling fresh.

  2. I have one under a bed somewhere. That last photo was one of my first pins for the styling, but I didn't even pay attention to the table, I love it, I think I'll go dig mine out!

  3. I have one from Ballard Designs that is heavy particle board, stored in the basement. So glad to read this post….I need to give mine a second chance. I love that skirt with box pleats and Greek key trim!!!

  7. I can't tell you how much I love the inverted pleat on a table skirt. That's such a great way to go.

  8. I love the one with greek key trim, and the last one...so glam! I knew about the Ballard ones, but I think I need something smaller, so I'll definitely check out BB&B. Thanks for the tip.

  9. Hi, love your site! The BHG link doesn't work, do you recall what it is? I want some info on the items in that Moroccan-inspired bedroom...

    Thanks!

  14. Mary Lou, the table skirts in the images above are for inspiration for a client project. Those were most likely custom made for those tables. Maybe try Ballard or etsy for custom made skirts?

    I hope this helps.
