Shabby and Chic Tables

Shabby and Chic Tables

Popular for their comfortable-but-put-together look, shabby chic kitchen and dining rooms are here to stay.

The shabby chic style is a paradox in itself. How can it be shabby and chic? The key is to use rustic furniture and finishings but keeping the color palette limited - otherwise it’s just, well, shabby.

The signature color for shabby chic is white. You can’t go wrong with a white base, say a table, and then add pops of mints, sherbets or any Easter egg hue. Or, mix it up and make the table pop.

Though paired with contemporary chairs, this blue table would feel at home in a shabby chic kitchen.

This subtly distressed table set accents the shabby in a shabby chic design, but is still traditional enough that it could fit into any traditional design style if you tire of the shabby and seek more chic.
