Where to find my table

| All things Antique, My thoughts on

Friends, I am officially obsessed with tables and desks. Remember our trip to the Midlands antique fair where I tried unsuccessfully to find myself a work table? Well since that trip, I have been dreaming about finding my desk.  I know there are other more important things to think (and obsess) about I feel hampered and unsettled by the lack of a proper work space. The fates must be conspiring too because ever since that trip, I have come across various kinds of desks, none of which are exactly what I need or want. I feel a little like Goldilocks!

First there were these adorable Florentine nesting tables from the 50s….cute but not at all what I am looking for!

Then there was this desk, also from the 50s with a mirror. But this one was a little too small, there would’ve been too little work space.Mirrored desk

Then there was this absolutely gorgeous carved flip up desk from the 19th century. Isn’t it just pretty?  I was literally drooling when I saw it. Unfortunately practicality reared its head–this simply wouldn’t have enough work space for me.  Believe me it was hard to walk away from this beauty!flip top desk I might have another lead which I aim to follow up tonight. I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be the one.  But if it doesn’t work out, maybe I should just go for this one..

Its the same guiding principle behind my jewelry.  And this table certainly fits my work requirements. So I wonder if this is actually the one.

What about you friends, any object related obsessions lately? I’d love to hear about them.

And if you have ideas where I can find my table, feel free to share them!

    Lots of lovely pieces! But don’t go for Industrial Artifacts just yet 🙂 Seems a bit small for creative work table. Have you tried checking out four- to six-seater dining tables instead? Very roomy work table 🙂

    Meg, thanks again for stopping by my blog and giving me your undivided attention. 😉 I LOVE the Indust. Artifacts table! But I agree with Peach ~ it might not be big enough. I’m assuming you need shelves or drawers in your work table? Or do you have another way to store all your bits and bobs?
