Round Skirted Tables

I really love a good round skirted table. Have I blogged about this before? Maybe.. Anyway it seems as though some people feel they are a bit old fashioned, but it's something that will never go out of style. And they have such versatility when it comes to styling!

Here are some really good ones :)

I'm sure you know this already, but Ballard has some good (and inexpensive) options:

For the most part, they are pretty budget friendly. Unless you have your heart set on a pricey fabric. A 30" table takes around 5.5 yards (and that's just for a solid).

Here is a skirted table I recently did (sorry for the poor photo quality):

This nook was somewhat awkward and we had to have something to display my client's awesome original sculpture of her husband when he was younger! It is so, so cool.

I am finishing up this project and then having it photographed soon!

  1. Thank you for posting this! I have a round, skirted table as my bedside table, and lately have felt like it needs some styling help bc it is large. I needed these pics bc most bed side tables you see in magazines are small and angular.

    they're a great storage place too...or a hiding spot if you're 3.

    btw: where did you find that clear base lamp? awesome original sculpture!

  4. I love these too - something so traditional about them... and I love mixing in another textile rather than another wood tone. Thinking of doing a pair as nightstands except that I'd really miss having a drawer...

    Love that original bust. I can't wait to see the rest of the room, it looks great!

  6. I skirted a table in our living room with a skirt from Ballard. Great quality. Only thing is, our table top was larger and the drop height shorter than the dimensions of the skirt, so it sits a bit wonky (technical term). But I don't think it bothers me enough to get rid of it...

    I adore the head on your table! Fun and unexpected.

  9. I think it can work, but it definitely depends on the style of the home and the fabric used to skirt it! Beautiful pictures today!

  12. That sculpture is super cool! And I love the sunglasses - just adds to the effect. I love a skirted table. They are truly a classic. I know I spied at least a couple in the newest AD too. Great job with the styling/vignette on yours!
