Coffee Tables

I love how unique coffee tables can be.

A simple table in front of a sofa is not the norm, any more.


Here is a pigeon basket covered with glass and placed on casters....

I think I posted this cute kid-chair photo, before...........

I've always liked this Pottery Barn bench as a (functional) coffee table.......




Here is an idea if you happen to have an extra pair of African Drum tables ...........



This rattan ottoman on casters is durable and functional!

And here is my coffee table in my family room...........



My mom gave me this piece. It is an old blanket chest or cedar chest.


I love the legs.........



I turn the back side away from the sofa - giving the seated guests the best view.

(and my sofa is RED, not pink like the photographs imply!)

The back is pretty, too.

Those are all fabulous. My favorites were the first 2 pics and then the bright yellow one. Such a neat post.

We don't have coffee tables...we have soft, comfy, put your feet up ottomans:)
