home: made [ coffee table ]
This weeks diy project we spotted is a good one, if a little bit complex.
This coffee table can be made if you have some basic woodwork skills, if not ask someone nicely to do it for you.
Either way this is an opportunity to design and make your own table, with wood choice you live and the dimensions to fit your space.

This Mid Century inspired console table from West Elm is the perfect piece to fit in any interior.
The sustainable sourced Acacia wood and bronze detail on the handles give a lux feel. The two drawers and shelf also make it very practical.

home: made [ desk ]
Head to themerrythought.com to be inspired to make this fab desk. Using an Ikea drawer unit as a base with the addition of a wooden table top and a pair of legs, you are good to go.
Obviously you will need to have some basic woodwork skills or at least know someone that has to complete this project, but it’s a great one.
We love the use of the drawer unit, it looks like it was meant to be part of the table and more expensive than it would actually be.
home: found this [ side tables ]
Small side tables are a great little update for a room and can be a way to add in a little bit of a new trend – metallic, colour or pattern.
These side tables from Next are a gorgeous vintage style and a great price for the pair at £85. The trays can be removed too.
Pair of 2 vintage styled metal side tables. Antique brass paint finish with vibrant red and pink inner tray paint finish
home: trend [ woven furniture ]
This last year has seen a massive resergence in 70s inspired rattan furniture. A boho feel, with a relaxed vibe was seen everywhere, and is still very much a popular choice.
This year we are seeing a lot more woven furniture incorporating Japanese influences. The pale wood tones are being mixed with black for a more striking look. This can be seen on cabinets and screens, again with Japanese influences.
The fine weave we are seeing creates a lovely pattern and texture on table tops and door fronts, perfect for a statement piece. Don’t go overboard with this, as the more stripped back the better. Let the furniture do the talking, so just invest in one or two items to tie into your space.
