Remember when I shared my vision for our window seat? Well, part my mental vision was having a Saarinen-style, mid-century marble tulip side table in front of the window seat for me to set down my book, my sunglasses, my
cup of tea glass of wine, and whatever else that needed a landing spot. And now I’ve got it.
I looked for options less expensive than the DWR version and found a great option at Overstock. But it was sold out. So I signed up to be emailed when it came back in stock (such a great feature!) and the minute I got that email, I googled for a coupon and then ordered. I was a little nervous about how well the marble would ship but Overstock packed it really well.
Once I pried apart the wood packaging it was really easy to put together, just a few screws, an allen wrench, and my big arm muscles.
The marble that makes up the table top is really nice white marble (carrara?). I didn’t know how it would look in real life but it looks great. I like it even better than the carrara marble we have on our Pottery Barn vanity in our family bathroom.
Even though the window seat has been pushed to the back burner while I’ve been working on my closet, our kitchen, choosing flooring, and another not-yet-shared big project, I am really glad to have a new little bright spot in our house in the meantime. I’m considering the price of the table to be well worth the motivation for me to stop starting new projects and start finishing the ones already started!
So, anyone else hunt for a cheaper version of a classic? Or love that “email me when it’s back in stock” Overstock feature as much as I do?? What do I need to sign up to order next…
