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.
We humans love to organise our homes, offices and other recreational spaces. It is because we are social animals. We are exposed to many things in the world every day. Change is constant and should be adopted in our lives. Do you ever feel the need to change something at home? Are you happy with clothes just lying around the place? Remember, a happy house is a happy you. We get attached to worldly possessions easily. We need to adopt a simple attitude of "letting go".
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.
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.
