Help Design My Room

Photo by Jennie Canzoneri
We have a decorating and design dilemma in our house. We've had this problem since moving in nearly a year ago.

See, we have an odd-shaped house with a very odd-shaped middle room (not quite a dining room, not quite a sitting room). And we're not sure what to do with this space.

That's where you come in! Can you help me?


Here's a larger picture of the room, from two angles.

I'd like to put a small bistro/round table near that small wall in front of the French doors. We rarely use those doors (which lead to our yard), and I don't think blocking them off a little bit will hinder us much. But we obviously want to keep the stairs and living room and kitchen entries clear.

So, here's where I need a vote from you.

Between this more modern dining table from CB2:

CB2: $199
Or this round pedestal table from IKEA:

IKEA; $249

Both are under $250, and both are about the same size. If the white doesn't work for us, we can always paint the pedestal table. I really do like both and although my husband's opinion does matter (some), I'm genuinely interested to hear what you think.
