[ wires drive me bonkers! ]

DO WIRES drive you as crazy as they do me? My dream is to live in a completely wireless world! In the meantime, we've been shopping for a TV unit to house all of those unsightly components and their wires. I wanted something to fit in this space, low enough to not block the view.





I love the look of the industrial-style pieces at Restoration Hardware and have been hoping that I might come across something similar somewhere in Dubai. We discovered a furniture store here called Marina that carries a few pieces that share that same sort of look as RH and look what we found!



It's a larger version of this side table at RH:




They also had a side table similar (with only one shelf instead of two) so we picked it up as well. And at about 1/3 of the price of RH! Finally our TV will be up off the window ledge and our side table will no longer be a cardboard box!

Our house was built in 1890, and has extremely low windows, we are constantly seeking out low furniture. This was a great find!

OH MY I can't stand wires either. I was just in someone's office and they had wires coming from everywhere I couldn't even concentrate on our conversation for looking at the wires and wanting to do something with them. OH and it looks so neat now :)
