Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

I’m In The Market For A Coffee Table

We brought up our old couches from the basement (and when I say “we” I mean Bill did it while I was at the gym). The “formal” living room is coming together slowly. We are trying to make due with what we have because otherwise we’d end up spending a ton of money. So all we need are the end tables and the coffee table.

Here are a few options. I’m looking for a really dark wood to go with my reddish brown leather couches.


A) Rhys Coffee Table


B) Dexter Coffee Table


C) Anywhere Coffee Table – Black


D) Winsome Wood Coffee Table with Dual Drawers and Shelf, Black

Oddly enough – they all look like the same table when I lay them out like this! LOL. I think I am making a big deal out of nothing. Which is your favorite?

  1. I LOVE option A. Very sleek and sexy.

    Can a coffee table be sexy…

  2. I'm a fan of the Rhys! It has the most storage and it looks to be pretty kid-proof. *BANG!* No worries, it's just distressed 😉

  3. Definitely A, it has an antique yet sleek look to it and the color is beautiful. Although I just KNOW you'll find some legos under that tiny gap every time you move the coffee table lol

    Vera! I love that pic of you and Bill at the bottom of the page. If you're still only getting 4 hrs of sleep a night, how in the world are you functioning, girl? You never look tired.

    I think Bill is reminding me of a young Matthew Broderick. But Bill is even cuter. I've been trying to figure out who he reminds me of 🙂

    btw, we need a new coffee table and end tables also. We currently have my husband's grandma's old stuff. We have it because my mother in law wants to keep it in the family…it is ugly as sin. Functional, but ugly. I've told Todd quite a few times that we must give it back to his folks – almost NINE years later, it is still here. So, I have decided that the only way to replace it is to go out and buy new stuff…then he will be forced to return it to them. Todd is the perennial bachelor – doesn't care how anything looks.

  7. Most definitely B!

  8. I love option A!!! Beautiful! – but if you are going for black – D!

  9. I like option A, also! Anything with drawers is good. We have been looking for the perfect coffee table for 6 months now! We have three adults that have to agree on it – not a good thing… lol I googled the Rhys Coffee Table, and it's from Pottery Barn? I like it a lot… hmm….

  10. Option A! Definitely the best looking one

  11. I liked D the best, but A is very nice. 🙂

  12. Lovin' A here!

  13. D. But, A is a close 2nd.

  14. I really like A, modern yet very classic.

  15. Ive been sleeping more these days. I get at least 7. I should change that up!! 🙂 lol

  16. I will show Bill what everyone said!! I feel good about the selections.

  17. if you end up going to a chain – let me know which one. 🙂

    Whew!! I'm so glad you are getting more sleep Vera! That concerned me, LOL! (I'm a worrier)

    I def will. I recently drove down to Murrieta for a dr's apptmt and I was sooo excited! There were at least 10 furniture stores all in a row. I am going to check them out next time. I know one of them was Plummers.

  20. i like the last one
