I Want This

Heritage Henredon table.

I have a full-blown, unrequited furniture crush!

A couple of weeks ago I saw this sweet 1956 Heritage Henredon table for auction on eBay. It wound up selling for $360, and that’s too much money for me to spend on something I really have absolutely no use for. It is absolutely gorgeous, though, and I cant stop thinking about it! I actually dreamt about it last night (and fell out of bed twice?)—that it was sitting in the back room of our house, the room that’s still unrenovated. In my dream, the room was painted white from top to bottom (including the floor), and nothing was in it other than this table.

    Like a lacquer glossy white? That’s really funny that it was in your dream. I thought me and Kath were the only crazies that happened to. It’s a really stunning table though!

    I didn’t actually fall out of bed, Joanna! It was a reference to this (which, in turn, is a reference to this)…

    I like the table, I think a nice little chair would look good by it (in your white room).
    That film seems great!

    I too was obsessed with that table. The lines are amazing! I bookmarked the auction and visited back, hoping just maybe….
