But allow me to dream. :)
I fancy a striking highly lacquered hot pink table. In a pretty grown up pink, almost magenta, much like this gorgeous side-table.
But in this simple, strong shape. And to seat 8-10.
So I went Flickr walkabout for some pink tables. Not many, but what I found really inspired me to go for this when we do need a new table!

But I do want these Chinese Chippendale chairs in (gloss white, please?) to go with my pink table:
These retro ones will do too...
And I'd like the seats upholstered in a happy bright fabric, one of my favourite Manuel Canovas fabric (the shades):

I've been eyeing this fuschia block printed table runner (pictured on left) from fab Etsy designer, by HomeSweet. Against my dark wood table, it would be so pretty as placemats arranged like the photo on the right from This Young House.
I just found this picture bellemaison that totally KNOCKED my socks off. thanks Julie!!
Another one I like that I have to add here (blogged here):
