|Jonathan Adler's Greenwich Village Duplex|
If we went the DIY route, I think my heart is pretty set on a black and white table top with a wood base, stained to coordinate with some other wood highlights we'll be sporting in and around Holtwood House. The James Perse version up top is sort of the end all be all ideal as far as I'm concerned. But, the table would need to disassemble easily- both for portability and storage (we like to change things up a lot around here). I'm not gonna lie. The Saarinen table bases used by the one and only Jonathan Adler up top sort of floats my boat too. If we went in that direction, perhaps we could swing a knock off using the Docksta bases from IKEA? Meh... too expensive for what we want to achieve I think.
No matter what, our table will be topped off with some playful accessories. How chic are the matte black ping pong balls and paddles? Ok, maybe the Chanel paddles won't fly with The Mister, but there are probably some more understated options to be found.
I'm convinced. Let's add this one to the Fall Projects line up. As much as I want a table for some quick-turn Summer fun, I have to remember that Rome wasn't built in a day. Sometimes the best kind of fun is preceded by a little elbow grease.
