Wenge dining tables no longer "in" ?

rayessJanuary 13, 2013
I was looking at this beautiful dining table ( for my modern home) and was told that Timber wenge look is on the way out?

Calling all designers..... What do you think? Is Anthracite the new colour?

Colours come and go, but beautiful design is timeless. This table is sleek, modern and still in keeping with upscale elegance. The question is really, "How close do you want to be when it comes to cutting edge home fashions?" The answer is going to make all the difference.

Are you a "Classic Chanel" follower (Think Jackie Kennedy) or do you prefer to be a "Donatella" darling (ie. Jennifer Lopez./J-Lo)?

Remember, tight adherence to design trends will make your furnishings obsolete within 5-10 years.

The "it" table today has a higher likelihood of becoming the design "Oopsa" in 10 years, then the sleek elegance of timeless design...that's what makes it timeless! Think Orange shag and you get the pic!.

If you are on the either coast and the Rothchild's have dumped their wood table and you MUST follow suite, then leave the table in the store. If you want contemporary but not ultra modern and are willing to sacrifice your "it" status to upgrade to "Gracious Elegance", then take the table home and enjoy its style for decades to come.

That is the difference between "trend" and style.

What a beautifully written reply. I read it twice. Yes you certainly expressed it in superlative way. Gracious Elegance is way to go....
