There is no doubt that modern furniture styles have come a long ways towards being more comfortable and convenient. A prime example of this is how the ottoman of today serves several purposes, versus only offering a resting spot for feet and legs. The once heavy bases of vintage ottomans have been replaced with hollowed centers that turn the normal ottoman into a storage ottoman. A Little More than a Storage Bench.
Storage tables with just one big compartment accessible by lifting the top can also make it really easy to do some last minute clean up of a room when you are getting unexpected company. You can just toss in the odds and ends from around the room and deal with them later when you have more time. One option like this is the Tropical Abaca Small Astor Table by Jeffan, which is made with a solid mahogany base and a twisted abacca fiber upper.
Most people tend to organize their lives in a square, 90 degree fashion. Our TV and computer screens are square, our tables, our parking spaces (okay, a stretched square...), our money, in short, everything has corners. Our homes too almost always are designed with square rooms. This is nice, neat, easy to organize, and BORING. Its too easy to get roped into fitting everything into neat and tidy corners. The problem is that most furniture is not designed to fit into the corners. Even if you do stuff a couch or bookcase into the corner, you waste space, and it tends to feel cramped and somehow, not right.
When you install any type of corner shelves or unit, you not only salvage valuable untapped space, you often make the whole room feel more spacious and airy. When you break the "squareness" of the room, it adds interest and charm to your decor. Not only that, but in some cases, using this area in this way can allow a room to have more than one function. For instance, a corner shelf unit for childrens toys can separate that part of your living room off for the kids while allowing you to reclaim the rest of it for toy-free relaxation.
