It's not just for dining rooms...



Tabletops aren't just for rooms traditionally associated with eating. Any place where one would want to linger, either alone or with friends and have a place to set a drink or a plate or bowl of something to indulge in, constitutes a "tabletop" as evidenced by the beautiful editorial in this month's  Traditional Home. In the photograph is a getaway within the magnificent Chicago area home of designer Denise Macey, which was designed by Bobby McAlpine and Greg Tankersley, the Alabama based architects.

A simple upholstered chaise set in a beautiful window with no doubt an amazing view, an interesting gueridon, which is the perfect tabletop spot to place a book, as in the picture, or a glass or two of wine. Sublime.
