I've admired the preppy white game table and monogrammed chairs that have graced the Lee Jofa showroom for several months. In my frequent trips to the shop I would always pass by the set and think how much fun it would be to have a game table at home. I could reintroduce myself to bridge, I mused, a game my husband and I learned BK (before kids) with other young, fun, like minded people with lots of time on their hands! Perhaps a Thursday night game with lemon martini's--I could dust off my bridge books and memorize some of those conventions I never got around to learning. Two weeks ago when I visited the shop, they were disassembling the Lilly Pulitzer vignette to make room for something new and the game table had a big sold sticker on it. I instantly felt a pang of regret, although honestly, I don't have a single spot where a set of bright plaid chairs and a glossy white table would work. But it would be fun to have a game table. Perfect for a corner nook, a pretty game table in a soft, glossy lacquer paired with luxurious light blue leather chairs--now I would definitely be game for that!
