Trendspotting: Curvaceous-Legged Tables

This elegant, warm, and feminine office featured in the latest Traditional Home stopped me in my tracks. Specifically, that desk! With its exaggerated, bulbous legs. What a brilliant way to feature such striking curves; to set the dark silhouette against the glowing backdrop. I immediately coveted it.

... and look! The same piece turned up a few pages later in this room designed by Mark Williams.



In fact, these curvaceous models are popping up all over the place. A more rustic version:

So, where's a gal to source one of these lovelies? This version on Alice Lane is pretty, but will set you back nearly two G's. Pretty, but no can do.A quick search on Ebay yields some styles with potential. I'd touch this one up with a darker stain, and drop the leaves down to use as a great entry table for a small space. Still, it's more barley twist than truly curvy.
I think you could really work some magic on this small, corner version - Buy it Now for SEVEN DOLLARS, people!
Again, this one doesn't offer the same unique silhouette, but I do love the ebonized finish.
Not quite the perfection I seek, but totally do-able, and I trend I can certainly handle more of.

What's seriously fun about that top photo is the bulb shape throughout the room. The drapes, the planters... so cool! Love that contrast of yellow and black as well. Really makes everything POP - but kindly.

Love that desk!

How awesome would a curvaceous-legged table be in the entry! Love the shape.

I'm totally on board with the curves. I bought a little table with curvy (although smaller) legs a couple years ago... maybe I need to paint it black.

Lexington furniture makes one. I've proposed it for a breakfast table on a project. I love those bulbous legs!

Just discovered your blog and love your sense of style (and totally jealous that you live in Brazil!) - the first image is beautiful - who wouldn't want to work at such a fabulous desk? I love forward to reading more of your posts (and trying out some recipes!). Cheers, Cynthia

That corner piece has some serious potential. Call me crazy but a Lucite top would be interesting.
