Mid-Century Tile Coffee Tables

(Live from Texas! Not a previously scheduled post.)

Bored in my hotel room Monday night, I was perusing eBay and happened upon a mid-century tile top table. We have been looking for just the right coffee table for 5 years - no exaggeration. I realized that a tile table could be the perfect piece for my living room. I already have so many beautiful wood pieces including several that my grandfather built, plus a taupe sofa that I now loathe, so I have no desire to add more brown to my living room. Some of the tables are budget busting, like the $2,000 table pictured below, but some can be had for around $200 on a best offer. Here are some of the more interesting tables that I found:

I really considered buying that last table, which ended yesterday for a mere $175, but until I get home and assess the furniture situation with my husband, it's best to wait. Plus, we may already have a new addition to our little modern furniture family. My husband made the furniture score of a lifetime yesterday. If you read my tweets, you already know what this is. If not, stay tuned until tomorrow for the big news and pictures...

Love the last piece, the mosaic work is charming, I would even hang the top on the wall if it's not too heavy~

WANT!!!! that last one is incredible and I love the wood one with the little tray that pulls out. I hate my coffee table right now, it's my husband's from his place before we moved in together and can't believe I have let it stay in my house for so long. I must hunt...Oh my I love that round b & w tabes too...sooo cool. Awesome finds.
