Salvaged Chic Of The Week: Cables Reef

Sunday, May 13, 2012

This week's Salvaged Chic Of The Week is the lovely Cables Reef....and is such a perfect POP piece. Cables Reef's charms aren't limited to her looks, she's practical too! This is a super solid table that also comes with a leaf, allowing it to seat up to eight people.

One of the things I love most about her, is she's classic & practical- with a modern twist... its bright pop color!  Johnelle took this table from a standard piece to one that now demands attention!

The base of this sturdy oak table is extremely solid which is a great benefit whether you are using the leaf or not.

Cables Reef is perfectly on trend, as Pantone recently announced its color of the year as "Tangerine Tango." As you can see, this color has been popping up everywhere, but I especially love it on an unexpected piece, such as a dining room table.

This is a room that I can envision Cables Reef fitting into wonderfully. Like the subtle tangerine accent from the art on the wall, having this table be the pop of color in a clean and modern space would highlight the room without overwhelming it by such a bright color.

Cables Reef would also fit perfectly among lush, colorful spaces like this eclectic room.

Mixing an orange, like Cables Reef, with blues and creams lets colors from complimentary sources interact regardless of their style.

Accenting Cables Reef with blues could create bright, playful, and retro inspired tabletop decor.

This is a great example of how orange can fit into a modern kitchen. Charcoals and creams tone down the brightness of the orange while still allowing it to shine. Using those colors with simple or earthen stoneware for the dishes would translate that modern feel into the tabletop decor.

As with any of our pieces, if you've been inspired by this one or are looking for something similar, please email us at to get started on your new project!
