Your favorite chair needs a teeny table to rest your martini on…or whatever your favorite drink may be! Wonderfully petite in size, we just can’t have enough martini tables in our life. Smaller than your standard end table, they tuck into small spaces and provide just enough tabletop space – a small-yet-mighty addition.
Don’t be afraid to go with a bold martini table- their small size allows for a great opportunity to get away with using an unexpected finish or material like rose gold, acrylic, or petrified wood – the possibilities are endless. Like the perfect jewelry, they can add just the right touch of personality to any space. Tuck one between two chairs as well for an intimate conversation over cocktails.
Check out a few of many martini tables that we adore, along with Walt’s martini recipe – a Smithe family favorite! Which one is your new favorite?
Add a tiny bit of dry vermouth in the bottom of a glass, and swirl it around to coat the inside of the glass.
Shake the glass hard into the sink to get most of the vermouth out.
Fill with ice and your favorite gin or vodka. Add blue cheese or jalapeno olives. Cheers!

Meet Ann Schref: “My favorite design trend is the movement toward eclectic style. Fresh, straight lined upholstery covered in crisper textural fabrics, and soft graphic patterns used for pillows and simple window treatments also appeal to me. I love color, but also enjoy using neutrals with many textures for interest. A surprise element in every room—an accent piece of upholstery , beautiful mirror or accessory, great wall color, or interesting chest—makes a room unexpected and special.”
