Stylish places to stow your odds and ends are critical in the living room. Whether it's big or small, fancy or casual, the living room is likely the most public and communal space in the house—it's where you entertain guests, so it's gotta make a good impression.
The coffee table is often called the centerpiece of the room. But you will notice that the same term is often used for a sofa, a rug, or any other piece of furniture.
Dating from the Victorian era, coffee tables are a necessity for every home. Without placing one in your livingroom, it feels like your furniture is incomplete. Why exactly do you need a coffee table in your house, though?
Far gone are the days of lounging around your living room watching Netflix and indulging in hours of self-care. Your lifestyle and your living room changed drastically the day you welcomed your little one into the world. The antique Noguchi coffee table may now be best kept in storage, both for its sake and your children's, and replaced by a more practical solution.
