i moved into my new apartment over the summer and didn’t have the urge to decorate. instead of forcing the process, i decided to wait until the home decor spirit struck. well, it finally happened. while on the way to my favorite ethiopian take out spot, i stumbled upon simon vintage, a haven for well curated and reasonably priced vintage goods. never the person to walk past a vintage or thrift store, i swiftly walked in and found a gem of a place.
i spotted the green cubes and instantly thought they would make an excellent coffee table. the owner thoughtfully suggested i place a piece of glass on top that a previous customer had taken from a large coffee table. due to my self-control issues, i was forced to also purchase the vintage ceramic lion. needless to say, i’m in love with my new coffee table–much classier than those wood palettes.
btw, that black and white photo is a picture of my granny at 14. everybody thinks it’s me–our resemblance is crazy!
