While browsing at the Jonathan Adler store a few weeks ago, I spied this gorgeous butler tray table and immediately added it to my wish list for a nook in my dining room. Priced at $595, it has a removable tray and comes in polished nickel or gold.

A few days later when I finally got around to thumbing through the new West Elm catalogue, I came across their version of a butler tray table for $149 (stand) and $59 (white lacquer tray).

While the W.E. version doesn't have some of the detailing that makes the Adler tray unique, a piece like this probably has questionable longevity in our house. And the more I look at them, I think the clean lines of the West Elm stand gel more with the rest of the pieces in my dining room...but that could just be the price-tag talkin.
