There are three end tables in the living room -- all are round and their ages are varied. Two are on each end of the sofa -- but they don't match and the third is next to one of the wing chairs.
When we went to Jefferson City a few weeks ago, Husband Jim came home with an abalone shell. It, became part of a new tabletop on one of the sofa end tables.

Husband Jim is not "coaster trained" and so the tables he use has glass or marble tops. I don't have to worry about rings on the furniture and he can place his glass down wherever he likes. This is his "end table" and so has a glass top over the mahogany table -- from the 30s, 40s or early 50s I suspect.
A lamp made out of an old tea tin with a great beige shade bought at one of our favorite local stores, The Iron Star, anchors one side of the table.
In the back, a brass planter with a bird's nest fern -- one of my favorite plants. And a much less fussy fern than most. It's not quite so thirsty and thrives on a little neglect.
Two bronze statues (which until recently resided on the mantle) add a bit of vertical interest. I'm not sure of their age but they were bought here, at a now defunct shop on Main Street. They were special and were a Christmas gift to Husband Jim many years ago.
I do forget who "they" are. But both are "somebody"!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my tabletop with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
And I'm sharing this post on Tweak It Tuesday
I never move furniture but I often change out tabletops. It gives the house a freshness, I think.
