You’re singing that song right now, aren’t you? If you are over the age of 40 you FOR SURE couple skated to this Huey Lewis tune...

 

Notice how Huey is wearing squares on his shirt? It's called marketing. It's an art. Just like that hair style.

What I love about the Telluride house is…well, a lot of things. But that doesn’t really matter because I only have $58 million in the bank and I hear Tom is a pretty tough negotiator. Still – I do love a big coffee table. And, apparently, so does Tom. See? We are so same same.cruise-helped-to-design-and-construct-the-native-wood-and-cedar-home-himself-as-you-can-see-its-very-rustic-on-the-insideSquare coffee tables offer more space for celebrity friends and ex-wives to gather around for wine, games, food, and wine.

Wait. I said wine.

Whatever.

Oprah just kickin' it old school with Tom.

Look at Oprah just kickin’ it old school with Tom.

Looks like Oprah knows how to act like a lady when sitting on someone's couch.

And Tom just kickin’ it crazy with Oprah. Why was Tom SO excited? Well…

Joey Potter agreed to marry him.katie-holmes-13545

Which led to this.

Wow. I have spent a lot of time looking at pictures of Tom and Katie and really this post is all about coffee tables. It is.

What I was trying to say is: rectangle coffee tables are so common. If you want to live like a celebrity and have a bazillion dollar third home and friends like Oprah who laugh when you jump on an italian leather custom-made buttery soft couch, then all you have to do is buy yourself one of these beauties!

Because even if your space is tiny, your circle of friends is big. Small gathering spaces demand a focal point, and a gorgeous square table filled with food and drink and surrounded by those you love is the perfect accessory no matter what you do or where you live or who you are (or were) married to. It’s hip to be square.

See you next time at The Neighbor’s House!

This pretty is pricey but worth it.
