When Chad moved to Brooklyn, he came with pretty much a couple of suitcases and an X-box (thankfully we got rid of the xbox pretty quick!). I had already been living in our studio apartment for a couple of months so I was established in the furniture department, but we needed to pick up some stuff for him pretty quick, like a wardrobe, desk, etc. We managed to hit a sample sale in our neighborhood and scored a side table with a little ding in it that he just HAD to have by the sofa for $25. We still have it 7 years later, and I’m definitely due for an upgrade.
This little gold side table is totally up my alley, but this white & espresso number or walnut table is probably more Chad. The great thing is, if we were getting married all over again, we could register for any of them at Target. And while we’re at it, might as well throw in some goodies when we entertain, like some new barware & bartools. That’s the great thing about registering, even though you may already have something, like plates, wine glasses or even pillows, its the perfect time to upgrade them to something new!
So tell me, is there anything in your house that you’d like to upgrade when you set up your registry?

As an interior designer, I’m constantly on the hunt for fabulous accessories and decor pieces for clients and I’m always tempted to write about them here, but dont since I’m clearly not a design blog. But I’ve finally figured out a way around that! So many things I come across would make for great registry or bridal gifts, so I’m starting a new column called Registry Redux, and in a nutshell, its pretty much anything I would have wanted to register for when I was getting married! We’re not talking crockpots here people, we’re talking serious modern design….hope you guys enjoy!
These Astack candlesticks from Helgo are a new favorite of mine…you can buy pieces in multiple colors and stack til your little hearts content for multiple configurations. Available in the US from The Vitrine and Gretel (on sale!!).
There is such good flatware out there, it makes me positively giddy! We registered for #6 and its just stunning.
