All eyes will be on Hollywood for the 85th Academy Awards. While “Best Picture,” “Best Actor”, and “Best Actress” get the lion’s share of attention, let’s not forget the supporting roles who are vital secondary leads talented enough not to upstage the main (leading) actor/actress.
If your living room was nominated as Best Room in Your Home, your sofa would be the lead. And the supporting role would be (drumroll please)… your coffee table, also called cocktail table!
YES, your sofa is definitely the star. But it’s the coffee table that completes the room. So this post is dedicated to those hard-working, under-recognized occasional tables that sit in the middle of all living rooms! Of the hundreds of living room tables in our store, here are a few of the standouts worthy of the red carpet.
The Mesa collection is always working hard giving you ample storage with drawers and a display shelf. Use the drawers to tuck away magazines and paperwork to keep your room neat and orderly. The display shelf comes in handy for books and notable collectibles such as glassware or ceramics.
If you seek something environmentally friendly, take a look at the Brazil collection. Made with bamboo, the most sustainable and renewable resource in the world, Brazil is beautiful and durable.
If space is an issue (and when isn’t it?) take a look at this unique Bali flip-top table. When needed, the top can flip open expanding the table’s surface. Ideal for small living room or studio apartments where space is premium.
Here’s a coffee table that’s always on the move.
The Manhattan tables are conveniently on castors to roll from room to room. Coffee table has a swing out top for more space when needed. Sofa and end tables have drawers for hidden storage. Great in any room!
Need a coffee table that can double as a desk?
Lift top tables are quick solutions for multi-purpose rooms such as your family room, bedroom, or guest room.
Need more? This amazing Davis coffee table performs triple duty as a coffee table, ottoman, and lift-top desk! There’s also a display shelf at the base for more storage. So functional!
These are my nominees for Best Supporting Role in the Living Room. I’m sure you have your favorites. If you do, let me know in the comment area below. Until then, enjoy the show!
