I’m always on the lookout for great deals and on a recent client shopping trip, stumbled on a beautiful and affordable table I had to share.
If you like the look of a trestle table (like this gorgeous one at Restoration Hardware), but don’t like a price tag that will run you over like a train (these can run upwards of $2K), consider the Cane Dining Table from Home Decorators Collection. It’s made of solid eucalyptus and at 84 x 40, takes up slightly less space than RH’s version (84 x 42) and is one inch shorter at 30″ – a more comfortable height, in my opinion! Pair it with classic upholstered nailhead chairs for a rustic elegant look. At around $750, it’s a beauty.
If you’re in the Chicago area, you can check out the table (and a bunch of other lovely pieces) at the Home Decorators Collection showroom on Halsted. It’s hidden away on the second floor of the Home Depot. Definitely worth a look, especially if you’re in the market for affordable large area rugs and furniture pieces like this.
