I’m in a domestic mood of late. I’m reading cookbooks for entertainment, watching interior design shows on cable, and being drawn inexorably to furniture and hardware stores. I wasn’t sure why this was so until this morning when I found myself scouring the Restoration Hardware website and found this.
This map chest coffee table is elegant, solid, warm, and – best of all – on sale.
Handcrafted from North American Black Cherry wood, you can choose from a natural cherry finish (shown) or dark cherry finish. Either way, the color will deepen with age and exposure to sunlight.
And did I mention that on sale bit? Because it’s a great sale for a piece bound to become an heirloom. The original price tag was $1,360.00. That’s a price that could send you to meet the ancestors right now! Luckily, you won’t be paying that. Right now this handsome coffee table designed for the ages is on sale for the much more painless price of just $799.99.
Now…if I get that leather sofa, too, and paint the walls of my living room a pale terra cotta….
