Mix, Don't Match
This homeowner bucked the “matchy, matchy” rule by placing different end tables and lamps on either side of the sofa in her
living room. The mismatch works because, even though one table is a white Asian-inspired look and the other is a black step-like
design, both tables are the same height. A sleek brass reading lamp pairs nicely with the simple white table, while a large
silver-leaf table lamp fits with the more substantial black table.
