Take 3: Coffee Table Time

Good looking and functional, let’s agree that no living space is really complete without a serviceable coffee table standing by. But decorating its surface is a tricky task. Dabble’s in-house design team offers three display worthy solutions.

ONE:

Scale, Balance and Proportion
The centre of the room is a prime spot to display a grouping of favourite coffee table books to best advantage. Jazz up the scene by varying heights and colours and adding playful objects like the hand blown glass bowl for texture. The uniform, grid-like design keeps things tidy and adds whimsy to the formal space.

Dabble Savvy: Swap out books for a collection of old records or photo albums.

TWO:

Go Big or Go Home
Give one large, fabulous item the attention it deserves. A matte finished copper bowl like this one complements the lime green surface of the coffee table.

Design Tip: In a family room, use a decorative bowl to house TV remotes in plain sight.

THREE:

Tray Chic
Practical and stylish, the right tray gathers and grounds floating and unrelated items. When it’s party time, a tray is a fantastic tool for accommodating hors d’oeuvres or cocktails.

Dabble Savvy: Contrast is important—mix round objects with square ones and short with tall to create a dynamic tabletop arrangement.

Take 3: Vanity Insanity

At first blush, a vanity table may seem like an outmoded, though elegant, means of dressing—something your grandma used. If you’re tired of leaning over the bathroom sink for a view of your face, retrieving your makeup brush from the wet bowl and leaving the house with a toothpaste stripe across your abdomen, it may be time to reconsider the ease of a dressing table. Dabble’s in-house design team offers three stylish solutions to make your morning makeup application anything but routine.

ONE:

Formal Evening Wear
How civilized to find a seat in front of a large gracious mirror, with everything you need for beauty close at hand. In combination with the Mica Shell wallpaper the handsome walnut wood bench, upholstered in a woven brown raffia, has just enough shimmer to make the setting sizzle. The brown glass vase holds spring tulips and a woven tray corrals grooming essentials.

TWO:

Turkish Delight
Global influences abound with this ornate mother of pearl Turkish style mirror and leather clad British colonial style chair. The bronze Hindu hand keeps long necklaces tangle free and adds a sculptural element to the practical setting.

Design Tip: Found objects, such as the Hindu hand sculpture, are an ideal display for jewellery.

THREE:

Casual Dress Code
A comfy poof or ottoman, provided it’s the right height, makes an efficient perch for makeup application and the small magnifying mirror is a great assistant. The silver tray complements the chrome studding on the seat.
