Best table for staging this room.

Posted by aktillery (My Page) on

This room is now empty and ready to decorate. I will use curtains, area rug, sofa and side tables with lamps, art and two side chairs one with a table and lamp.

This will be on the market and I was wondering would it look better with a round table, small antique rectangular table ot ottoman.

Any other ideas are greatly appreciated!!!

With all the bold square or rectangular lines in your room, I would try a round table.

I'm going to say round for the reason above as well as an antique table being more taste specific

thanks for your ideas

Thanks Red and Remodelfla. Yes the entire house is boxy so I also think round will work well.

An oval table might work too - something like this?

thanks pip

Thanks pip! Very cool table! Just might be a bit too modern and big.

I would make sure the rug is under the front legs of the seating, but NO table at all. Leave the floor space open if this is just for staging.

I ditto what Les says. Leave it open. It's a small space and the table will just make it look smaller.

I would not spend any money on table simply to stage the room. The table that is there seem fairly "airy" and doesn't take up much visual space, so I'd leave it or have not table at all. You might want to consider removing the rug to show off the large expanse of hardwood flooring.

thank you!

Thanks! The rug and everything is gone. I have a small coffee table already that I can use and I have a light colored rug. I like to stage a room in the way I would want to see it
..lived in and real. I will post when I am done and you can give me your thoughts. The entire house is an expanse of hardwoods. There are no rugs and it seems cold with no delineation of spaces.

Thanks for your input!

I like to see "lived in" rooms as well and I think it helps people who have trouble visualizing furniture arrangements etc...
Can't wait to see!


 o
agree

Thanks Lori!
