Needing, Wanting, Loving: Skirted Tables

There's no doubt about it- I'm a big fan of table skirts. If done correctly, a skirted table can be a welcomed addition to any room. Not only beautiful, they are also very useful- perfect for hiding items stored underneath or unsightly electrical cords that would otherwise be visible.  In terms of style, a skirt can be created to feel flowy and more delicate for a traditional feel or tailored tightly to look sleek.  This bedside table skirt features a contrast trim and a glass top that makes it feel extra special and intentional:


Christopher Nutter created a pleated skirt on this console in the same fabric and trim as the draperies for a cohesive look in the 2015 DC Design Showhouse.  I love the blues and the pretty scalloped Coleen & Company fixture!


Skirted console tables are the perfect way to dress up a hallway:




Genius Kristin from the Hunted Interior DIY'ed a table skirt for her TV console.  It now hides all her equipment, subwoofer, and cords, and she swears that her remotes still work even with the skirt hiding her cable box! 


Although table skirts are most often seen in rooms where one entertains, I thought this skirted sink shown on Furbish's instagram was both innovative and darling. I might have to steal this idea for my own tiny sink in my NYC apartment bathroom


Dining tables look handsome skirted as well:


T. Keller Donovan used one of my favorite fabrics, Quadrille's Island Ikat, throughout this gorgeous Palm Beach apartment, and it makes a statement as the dining table skirt:


Many designers make skirted tables to use as centerpieces or side tables:





I used one as a way to break up the space in an open floor plan living room.  The silk dupioni fabric and fullness of the body were meant to make a statement:



So tell me- are you a fan of the skirted table?  Love it, or leave it?
