I trekked to Crate & Barrel last Sunday to look for a gift for my good friend's wedding that my husband and I attended this weekend. While there, I also picked up this woven oval tray for myself. After bringing it home, I placed it on this table in the sitting room off of my kitchen, but I can think of no less than 7 equally amazing uses for it. I love it it ties the light-colored furniture in a little more with the colors of my cowhide rug. (Let's face it, folks--it's all about the cowhide rug in this room. I decorated the room around the cowhide rug before I even owned one. Seriously.) It's surprisingly sturdy and will also make a great serving piece. Crate & Barrel has several other lovely Artesia pieces--I already have my eye on the chargers.
