apartment / coffee tables

I've been in serious nesting mode and have a laundry list of things to do in the apartment. Currently our coffee table is a vintage trunk we love that we found at Pioneer Goods, but it's feeling a little heavy for the living room and I can see it re-purposed in our bedroom. So...I've been on the hunt for something a little airier, preferably with a bottom shelf.

I love the bottom West Elm one, but pricing might win out in favor of the Ikea find. Any favorites I'm missing?


  1. I think there are plenty of cost-efficient coffee tables at Ikea which serve the very same purpose. I also personally prefer those with a shelf underneath to provide that additional space for storage so as not to mess up the top. It is good to store those magazines and papers lying around and not forgetting the remote controls and other knick-knacks around.

  3. Another friend of mine recently told me that something similar happened to him that happened to my first friend.

  4. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks. I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks. Guttering Blog
