When most of us think of living room furniture, soft, cozy furnishings are probably the first mental picture to come to mind. Plush couches where we can snooze on a Saturday afternoon or deep couches that are comfortable enough for movie night are top of mind for many. But the humble coffee table is a must-have that can't be overlooked. Where else would you put your popcorn, your beverage, or your glasses come nap time?
And if you play your cards right and opt for a coffee table with storage, you get so much more bang for your buck. In addition to a solid surface for anything and everything, you get plenty of extra space (sometimes hidden or sometimes not so hidden — whatever floats your boat) for blankets, magazines, and more.
