A Roundup of Brass and Glass Coffee Tables

Did you know has come to Canada and is now shipping? Exciting right? Long gone are those days when I ran a Google search, was directed to, only to have to abandon my shopping cart at the end due to the hefty import duties and shipping fees. is now priced in Canadian Dollar, and will ship free for orders more than $49. 

The first thing I did on was to search brass (gold) and glass coffee tables. Remember it's on my 2016 project list? Yes, I am trying to get my head into the game and have a head start on this year's decor projects. Procrastination will no longer be my middle name. 

My living room is almost square-shaped, and I want the furnishing to be centred around the fireplace, so it makes sense to get a square or round coffee table. I also really love a two-tiered construction. As you could see from the picture below, the coffee table I made over last year still didn't quite work for the room - not only does it look lonely in a big space, it also doesn't seem to belong, style-wise. 

So here's a roundup of all the brass (gold) and glass coffee tables I like, most of which are available on 
1. Harlan Square Coffee Table: this is a strong contender now due to its less than $300 price tag. It's a tad too small though (only 36" x 36") and I can't say I completely love the brushed gold finish.
2. Hayward Coffee Table by Interlude.
3. Vitya Coffee Table by Uttermost.
4. Laurence Coffee Table by Pangea Home: LOVE the base and that it's two-tiered, but it's rectangular in shape. 
5. Mieka Coffee Table by Safavieh: this is my #1 choice for the time being. It has everything I was looking for: square in shape, gold-leafed frame with two-tiered glass table tops. I just need to convince myself that if I end up spending $1200 on a coffee table, I will love it for a long time. 
6. Scalinatella Cocktail Table by Jonathan Adler.
7. Henzler Coffee Table by Uttermost: love it but again it's rectangular. 
8. Jasmine Coffee Table by Nuevo. 
9. Inga Coffee Table by Safavieh. 

So which one is your favourite? 

A while ago I saw this bench at HomeSense, and I had to fight the urge to buy it. Faux bamboo everything, to me, seemed to be a just phase on my decor journey that I already moved past. I knew I would end up returning it. 

Gorgeous I know. 

And then on this past Boxing Day I found this velvet tufted bench in Louis style, and it came home with me. I am not crazy about the distressed paint job on the legs though, so I will have to repaint them someday, maybe in black or charcoal grey?
