Perfect Table & Brisbane Vintage Shoping

I am on a hunt for the perfect table for my study and love this Marchetti & Mercatini tables. So classical, versatile . It goes beautifully with any style and looks fabulous mixed with modern pieces and easily transform into dining table comfortably seating 8 .
I think Diane Keaton has this table in every movie she does.

I went to check what's available in Brisbane Antique and Vintage shops. Nothing beats my favorite but here are few photos what I've found interesting.
Not bad and very cheap option

I recently saw a pic of a desk very similiar to the one in your 3rd image Viera with a silver Tolix chair tucked under it. The juxtaposition of the 2 very different styles worked really well. Good luck on your hunt. Hope your weekend is lovely.

Hi Viera
I love all these gorgeous pieces. The first 2 remind me of a table I nearly bought many years back. The top folded back enabling it to be used as a console or full dining [as a desk would be great too]. So now I wish I had bought that table. Had forgotten all about it.
Have a great weekend. x Julie
