We were greeted with a friendly woof at the door of Erin’s beautiful home in Arlington, VA! Bo, the charming Golden Retriever, had his favorite toy in his mouth and wanted to share it with me. We were there to deliver a gorgeous round center table from the high quality manufacturer, Jonathan Charles, and I think you’ll agree it looks smashing in its new home.
The veneered top of the beautiful new Jonathan Charles center table (item JC-429 on our EuroLuxHome.com website) is spectacular with its hand-crafted, intricate design. Each piece of the parquetry inlaid design of intertwined ribbons is carefully hand-applied. Here is a bird’s-eye view of the Jonathan Charles round table top. This will give you a better idea of the intricate detail on the marquetry veneer:
And here is another close-up of the Jonathan Charles center table or accent table, with its lower tier shelf and curvy saber legs. It’s a very striking design, isn’t it?
I especially love how Erin arranged this space so that the curved design of the light walnut table echoes the curved design of the handsome vintage Art Deco grandfather clock on the back wall. The clock was brought back from Germany by family members.
The warm walnut wood tones of both pieces are a perfect complement in the space with the dramatic painted navy walls and bright white molding and trim. It is obvious that Erin has a flair for interior design. Her choice of rugs in both the foreground, and in the living room behind, and even the throw pillows on the sofa, tie all of the colors in the two spaces together and draw the viewer’s eye into her lovely home.
The beautiful piece of art on the wall is part of the family’s growing art collection and was found on a vacation in Louisiana and shipped home. What a warm and inviting entryway space with living room beyond – we’re impressed!
Thanks for letting us share photos of your lovely home, Erin, and thanks to Bo for greeting us so warmly too!
