“I actually salvaged my coffee table from an old day bed (yes, it was covered in old fabric and a mattress which I pulled off totally to reveal a low frame with hessian as the base)! It’s the perfect large coffee table and this is just half of it! Most of the things on it were sourced from my shop, .
I have two large wooden trays that I sourced via my shop (in Melbourne’s Albert Park) quite a few years ago and have a collection of old books piled on top (which I can source any time). On top of one of the piles of books is a collection of old vintage postcards just randomly placed.
On the other pile of books I have a yellow ruler that was found at a flea market. Next to the books is a tarnished silver tray and old goblets that I have collected over the years. The two metal peacocks were sourced from a flea market in Amsterdam.
You are only seeing half the coffee table, as it’s a big one. On the other side there are interior magazines and coffee table books piled very high with a collection of butterflies in boxes I sourced at a market in Berlin.”
Thank you lovely Lyn, for sharing this glimpse into your gorgeous home with us!
