There’s More Than Meets the Eye With These Coffee Tables
Next to a sofa, sectional or love seat, one of the most popular pieces of living room furniture has to be coffee tables. Over the years, coffee tables have morphed from a place to set drinks and food while you talk to becoming a surrogate dining room table, akıllı sehpa
thanks to innovations in design.
As most homeowners know, the television has become the focal point of many homes. Home theaters and gigantic plasma screens have transformed homes into mini movie theaters.
Small wonder why then, that families young and old have moved their dining into the living room. And while coffee tables and TV trays performed admirably, designers realized there had to be a better way.
Enter lift top coffee tables. Not only do these tables allow you to dine in style but they also offer you hidden storage, giving you a place to keep things like coasters, remotes, books and even pet or child toys out of sight and out of mind while guests are over. These new tables allow you to be a bit of a neat-kin even if you’re really not. When guests are due to arrive, simply lift the top, put away all the things covering your table and you’re ready to go.
But the true beauty of lift top coffee tables comes during dinner and a movie. Instead of balancing your dinner precariously on your lap, hunching over the coffee table or setting up that origami nightmare, the TV tray, you can simply lift up the top of the table and voila! – an instant dinner table. Depending on the size of your table, you can get a lot of people around one, too. The great thing is that everything is at the perfect height, so you don’t have to try to keep your food balanced on a fork as it makes its way from the plate to your mouth.
The lift top is also great if you like to enjoy popcorn and some Junior Mints with your movie. Everything can be arranged on the lift top so everyone has ready access to it. In no time at all you can be watching the latest blockbuster without shelling out $25 for a drink, a bucket of popcorn and some nachos.
But don’t think for a moment that lift top coffee tables are one trick ponies. No sir. They are great for doing a little work on your laptop, whether you’re getting a big presentation ready for the boss tomorrow or catching up on some last minute homework that you forgot was due.
