For the past two years, I have been trying to find a table that would fit in our family room in our condominium. I can’t say that I am positive about what it is that I want, but I know that I will know what it is when I find it. I’m just afraid that I will never find my table. I know that I am not looking for the discount furniture house table. I thought that I wanted a more traditional look because I like wood furniture. Whenever I went into a furniture store, their idea of traditional was the cumbersome, ornate, curved leg tables and chairs. I never thought of that as traditional, so now I’m not sure what it is that I want. Last week, I was talking to a co-worker and I have always noted him as a person who was elegant, even in his jeans. I was sure that his home would be as tastefully decorated and just as classy as he appeared. I asked him about finding a table for our family room and he offered to go shopping with me. At first I was excited, but as the afternoon wore on, my excitement waned and turned to disappointment. I asked him if it was this hard for him and he told me that he had used an interior decorator and design coach for his lifestyle. When he bought his house, he said he had no clue what to do and he even thought about grabbing some furniture from the local Goodwill store, but then he saw an ad for a custom furniture designer. They designed his home so that everything fit perfectly and they took care of every piece of furniture and even the wall hangings.
