Danish tile top table

mid century Danish tile table

Our friends, Chris and Susan, lent us their Danish tile top table because they no longer have room for it at their place. It's great because we can road test it and use it without any commitment. We can hang on to it for as long as we like until we get sick of it or if I find a small sideboard or cabinet to replace it.

It will fill the void that is currently in the back corner of our sun room.

I also have a new ugly lamp which I snapped up from Katherine at theoldboathouse. It gives a lovely warm glow in this room. The etching in the background is from local Brisbane artist, Helen Kennaugh.

Look at the gorgeous pattern on the tiles

Tonight, I'm off to Chris and Susan's place to watch a play which they are staging at their house - Journey to Milan by Lorna Bol. Not too many people put on salon theatre these days, but it is such a fab night enjoying the arts in such an intimate setting.

Our t.h brown bar stools, viking chairs and coffee table will be part of the stage props. They were whisked away this afternoon. Our furniture will be famous!!

 So long furniture

A funky stage


  1. Hope you had a great time at the "Theatre"! Did you take some pictures of the beautiful designed set? Hope so!

    Great table and lamp too.

    Can you believe the school holidays are over already? I am really going to miss my sleep-ins and, of course, my kiddies!

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Anita, I like the tiled table and I think your lamp and decor look great on it. Sounds like you have a very cultural night, I hope you enjoyed it and had a great time! What an honour to have your furniture centre stage (literally!).... ;-)

  3. wow i love that idea, what a fantastic way to stage a play. hope you had a great time.
