Recycle Glamour: How to build a Table Vogue with Mademoiselle Agnès

January 6, 2010

This great clip off of was a great reminder of why I love French Vogue, a publication that’s more dedicated to creativity and style than simply selling a lot of issues. In this episode of “La minute d’Agnès”, the one and only Mademoiselle Agnès, French television fashion commentator, demonstrates, in leather bustier and heels, how to make a table Vogue.

While you can get the idea of how to put together a Vogue table even if you don’t speak French from just watching the clip, here’s the jist of it.

For those of you with a passion for three things in life—l’amour, la mode et le Vogue (love, fashion, and Vogue)—you’ll simply make four even columns with Vogue magazines, then place a sheet of glass on top. Mademoiselle suggests about 30 Vogues per column, about 40 cm high. (Of course, you could make a table like this with any magazine, but I doubt the finished product would be as glamorous.) you are not building-inclined, you may want some help. Once your columns stand straight, be sure you chose the best covers to go on top, as this is what you will see through the class. Finally, place the glass on top, and you’re done.

While Mlle. Agnès doesn’t say this, a table Vogue wouldn’t probably not be good idea for a home with kids or pets running around. (Just imagine the disaster.) Moreover, no heavy objects would probably be advisable . Perhaps, a copy of French Vogue and a demi-tasse with some Illy espresso, non?

Now, onto the Mlle. Agnès’ construction of the table Vogue.

    Cʻest une idée geniale! If only Iʻd thought of it before bidding adieu to my collection of American Vogue dating back to 1982!
