While most of us find the additional storage of a modern ottoman to be ideal, many of us are blown away when we discover that they can also be used as a table. Many of the modern ottoman styles are designed to be used as a table, food tray, foot rest, and storage bench all wrapped into one attractive package. The modern ottoman storage bench can replace that coffee table and help you get control over typical living room clutter.
Another advantage of storage tables is that you can use those with shelves to display some of your treasures, or to keep the books or magazines or craft project you are currently working on close at hand. The Metro Rectangular Coffee Table by Hammary is a good option, with a combination of shelves and drawers so that you can store some things hidden away and keep some in view.
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.
