ZOMG, I’m obsessed with this dining table from Crate & Barrel. I want it with every fiber of my being, although I already have a supercool mid-century vintage dining table passed down from my grandparents that I would never part with. Even if I needed a dining table, I couldn’t afford this one.  TWO AND A HALF Gs. But still. The heart wants what the heart wants.

Como Round Marble Top Dining Table, $2,499.

Conversely, you couldn’t PAY me two and a half Gs to put this fugly thing (also from C&B) in my house:

Mallorca Square Marble Top Dining Table, $2,399.

I looked at that and thought…

You win some, you lose some, Crate & Barrel.
