Lately Catharine has been coffee table shopping and I just love messing with furniture, and though they were one thing once, coffee tables have become so much more lately. It started as a place to put your drink when you had company and you sat in the “sitting” room with tea or coffee, maybe after a meal. Now they have become more of a “mail, drinks, dinner, remote, and puppy” table. Which is more important, which has more value? To stay a purist and maintain the simplest idea of “table” to hold things up, or elevate them, or do we embrace and make it work for our needs and the modern Tivo, Uverse, Netflix watching freaks that we are? There is such a variety of said beasts, it gets pretty exciting. Check em out, which would you rather (rother) have? I was once told that an object is just an object when it does one thing, when it does 2 things, then your in the realm of architecture. So if you were to build one, or have it custom built, what would it be? I can tell you mine will have pop out drawers and places for magazine, and certainly a little drawer for a remote or 7 and if I’m cool enough, even an electrical plug for when I’m on my couch with my laptop….
who knows :)
So as you can see coffee tables have come a long way, so what does your ideal coffee table look like? What would it do for you?
Until next time!
