Decorating & arranging things at the Log Cabin

Slowly but surely, we are making progress on furnishing the interior of our log cabin. I like all the different textures and colors that look good combined with the background of logs - such as bright colored couches, leather, bronze metal and oriental rugs.


I found this oriental rug at Garden Ridge priced $100 less than a similar one I found at a major chain store.
As the dining area is small - I am putting a round dining table with seating for 4. The extra 4 seats at the kitchen bar should be sufficient for the overflow crowd.










I'm thinking about putting a small fireplace in that far left corner. I saw some nice ventless gas fireplaces at Home Depot but concerned about their safety.















I found this great bronze textured metal "Tulip" table at Pier One. It is suppose to be a side table, but with its height and size, I think it's perfect as a non-obtrusive coffee table.













Here's a closer look at the table so you can see the detailing. What do you think?
