Wood & marble furniture.

I did a little antiqueing over the weekend on Hollywood Road in Central, which is a really famous shopping street in HK.  In the time I spent there checking out a few pieces, I saw this little man build an entire stool.

I’m not quite sure what one would use these little stools for, but it’s always nice to have a few on hand–to put your laptop on, for extra seating, to climb on to reach that upper shelf, etc.  I really liked these mini guys, but I think they are a touch small for us Westerners, although they’d be perfect for a child. In general, I just think wood and marble together is so different. It seems like it would be hard to build–quite a craft in fact.
Even though this isn’t my style,  it would be awesome in a bachelor pad! And it was actually surprisingly comfortable. The marble back really cools you down in this insane humidity.

There were tons of impressive statues–again, not my style, but cool to see. There was a lot of this knotty, natural furniture. It’s hard to imagine a room that could carry  a piece like this!
The Mr. really liked this desk. I couldn’t argue with him, but I think it is meant to be a writing desk and it would be a real waste to put three giant computer screens and tons of cords on it.

This was my top find of the day. I think a marble table is such a great idea because you wouldn’t have to worry about water stains from glasses and it is easy to wipe down. I also think this would look amazing in our new apt–it’s the perfect size and matches the marble in our window seats.

I’m currently debating this purchase… should I save my pennies for other things and just get a simple table at Ikea that I can cover with all my beloved tablecloths? Or go for this one of a kind piece?! TBD.
