Get the Look: 46 Modern Dining Tables

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining room schemes are complete, I’ve put together my favorites from  my exhaustive search for dining tables. I’ve included a bit of everything here—round, elliptical, and rectangular—including tables that expand and fold up. Most are modern in style, some are vintage, materials run the gamut from scrap wood to marble, and prices range from $179 (IKEA!) to a piece by Autoban for De La Espada for $12,595.

I’ve been a huge fan of #3 for weeks, and it was just in a kitchen I wrote about for the Boston Globe Magazine. I can’t help but love the Saarinen (I have the side tables and they’re just so satisfying). I really love the mix of marble & rough wood, not to mention the price, of #1. #16 is pretty, and #44 and #46 are great reflections of current trends—dipped and geo. Any favorites here, or that I may have left out?

Get the Look: 55 Coffee/Cocktail Tables

I’ve already given you the rundown on our living room coffee table situation yesterday. I realize I provide photos of our apartment when I talk about it, but that would require more tidying than I have time for, not to mention camera skills.

We sort of need a coffee table for our family room too, but I hate to take up the limited and cozy floor space. And it would be in the way during Oakley’s playtime. (My cat, not my kid.) I daresay side tables must suffice. In any case, here are 55 coffee/cocktail tables. More than a few are amazing.

Get the Look: 50 Modern Bar Carts, Serving Carts, and Trolleys

As you know, bar carts  have become the must-have accent piece in the modern home. Even those who don’t drink want shiny a bar cart set up in an unused corner, styled to perfection with all the best bar accoutrements—decanters, shakers, stirrers, striped paper straws, martini glasses—finished with a killer piece of artwork hanging on the wall above it.

Bars don’t have to be on casters (though all the bar carts in this post are on wheels). You can create a bar in a cleared out section of a bookshelf, on a lacquered tray atop a console table, or repurpose the armoire you no longer need for your TV since you switched to a flatscreen. A tray table—the kind that’s an actual tray set into a butler’s stand—works particularly well as a home bar too.

This entry has been one of the site’s top five posts since I first published it over two years ago; it’s been long overdue for an overhaul. As of November 10, 2014 you’ll find 50 brand new bar carts arrayed here. With the holidays approaching, it seemed an ideal time for a bar carts refresh.

I’ve been thinking about setting up a bar for my husband for like half a dozen years now. At this point, with the boys approaching teendom, we’ll need a bar cabinet with a lock. (I’ll work on a bar cabinet post soon.) Perhaps I could pull one together as a holiday gift. Or his next birthday. We will be entertaining for our son’s bar mitzvah this winter. Can’t have a cocktail party without a  pretty home bar, after all.

This selection of 50 bar carts, serving carts, and trolleys, some with removable trays, are all ideal for setting up your home bar. Styles include contemporary, mid-century modern, art deco, and traditional classics in brass, walnut, acrylic, polished nickel, lucite, birch, oak, rattan and more.
