Travertine is my love language; The best travertine coffee tables and trays.


The furniture setup for our living room is anything but straightforward. For example, there is no fireplace or mantle as a focal point. We have floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides, so we have been going through different setups. I have still to figured out the seating arrangement and have an old Chesterfield that I planned to sell, but I can't make myself do it. It is too well-made and comfortable, so I made it work for the space. Maybe after watching the scene in Succession, when Logan tricks the children out of the company, sitting on one of the two Chesterfields in his rented Tuscan villa, I changed my mind on selling. If it was good enough for Logan. It is good enough for me.

Currently, I am on the lookout for some coffee, side tables, and a library (although the library is a story for another time!). I am considering two options for the coffee table. The first one is a circular wooden table, which is a timeless choice that would add warmth to the room. The second option is a travertine table, which is a more modern choice that would bring a touch of elegance. While both options have their merits, the travertine table is truly something special. Its unique teardrop shape and vintage style add character to any room, and the material itself is both durable and beautiful. Plus, if you're looking for a great deal, you can find original travertine tables on Etsy at a much lower price than you would on other sites like Chairish or FirstDibs. Like this one that is a fraction of the price

But there are so many good travertine tables around. I love the Jenni Kayne Sur Table one. And even Target has a cute travertine side table.

And if I get the wooden table, then a travertine tray is such a chic and stylish combo. I mean, who wouldn't love that natural beauty and unique pattern of the tray?! Lulu and Georgia have some super cute ones, and don't even get me started on the ones you can find on Amazon! It's the perfect way to add a touch of italian style to your living room.
