Chic Side Tables

 

As the nights are drawing in we are reaching to light the table lamp on one of our fabulous side tables… It’s a fundamental piece of furniture, for the ends of your sofa, or at the side of an armchair, dressed with a table lamp and a posy of flowers. Rule of thumb for designing a perfecting living space is to include a side table beside each seat, so that when you or a guest sit down, you are always in easy reach of a side table to rest your glass. If space is an issue check out some of our suggestions throughout these side tables for ideas.

Lighting by Design

 

A good lighting design within a room is subtle lighting, the more sources of light, the subtler the effect.

Here are some ceiling lights, floor lamps and table lamps available from Ian Thompson Interior Design.

Your Dream Home

 

As designers we always protect our client’s privacy, so it’s a rarity for you to get a chance to share our friend’s lifestyle and home, a behind the scene view… July edition of NI Homes and Lifestyle.

John and Diane have been loyal friends for 30 years and over this time have supported our business by adding our fabrics and accessories to their large collection of antiques, all with Diane’s exquisite home making style. 

Today I am taking you to a dream, of living in a wonderful home surrounded by your own green acres, a historic fort and private woodland. The extended property, still with it’s original architectural features and extended buildings, creates a wonderful ambiance for a fun filled family home to entertain and enjoy all the outdoor activities near the shore of Strangford Lough.

This unique property allows you to work from home in your separate office buildings or studio, entertain with staying guests in your additional Gatehouse, stable your horses, dry-dock your yacht in the boat house…   and it doesn’t stop there… the gardens are wonderful, but easily maintained, filled with delphiniums and phlox, you will even have your own potager…

Interested… give Templeton and Robinson a ring.
