I'm pleased to report that Room and Board customer service was so professional, and the delivery was like watching something in fast forward, these folks can move.
This is what we got!
|Tyne Natural Steel Cocktail Table|
And a 'Woodwind Cabinet', not pictured, because it was made to order.
Dining chairs! We got six, but since we don't have the new table yet, only four fit.
Over to the right you'll see evidence of our last coffee table and a hint of the new, made to order, black cabinet.
I apologize for this picture being the suck, but I was having a lazyfest and didn't want to do a whole photo shoot with the black cabinet in bad lighting. Still, you get the gist, this is the black cabinet, which even in bad lighting is so much better than the hight extension for the Billy Bookcase from Ikea, which the T.V. currently calls home.
We're considering getting rid of the speakers and subwoofer to cut down on the mass of non-essentials in our lives. We're also considering getting rid of the T.V. in this room, and football is making me want to do that sooner, and football is making Aaron want to do that never. We do have another T.V. in the mancave, so he can watch football in there, but he likes to have it on everywhere. Ug. In other news I just found out that football does not in October, but ends four months after October, at which point Aaron will emerge from a drone-like state, and notice things like dining room chairs and coffee tables.
Speaking of coffee tables, here she is!
So in love, favorite thing of everything we got. I've wanted this forever, if you'll remember the living room rendering I made months ago, I used this coffee table with a marble top.
I ordered it with a glass top because I wanted to be able to see our delicious rug, and because it was three times less expensive. It's cool we did so much like the rendering; I got the couch, in a different color, same coffee table, different top, and a similar rug. Soon to come, new and larger artwork!
I'll reveal my one misgiving about all the purchases. I'm torn about the color of the dining room chairs.
All the other colors in the living room are so 'clean' and these are a mixed tone of gray and brown, which I thought would go well since the other colors in the room are gray and brown, but ug I don't know. What do you think?
Aaron thinks they're great, but he is colorblind, so his opinion is less credible. Readers, thoughts?
