Once you found the perfect furniture, you can’t get enough of it. This coffee table/working space/design wonder is my favorite piece of furniture in our apartment (our huge wardrobe hasn’t arrived, yet so you understand why it didn’t get first place). This table is quite pretty but it is also smart and spacious. It has a 3D effect with the moveable glass piece in the middle. It creates another space under the top piece for books and magazines, makes them visible and creates another space for drinks and plates. When we ordered our living room wall system we actually had a different color in mind but it wouldn’t have matched with the table which is only available in this kind of brown. So to have the table we changed the color of our wall system, which turned out to be the better choice in the end.
I added a lot of color with different sorts of orchids and design magazines to create a more lively and interesting space around the table itself. While we are still buying and searching for furniture, waiting for the wardrobe to finally arrive, I am using our coffee table as a desk and it is interesting to work in Japanese style. Sitting low with my feet under the table I definitely cannot jump up and run around but I get a new perspective of the living room. Everything seems a bit bigger now. In front of me I have our cooking book collection and in the back the sofa as a back stabilizer…Even the Ipad is the perfect height when put on the glass piece if I want to work multi-device.
The table is from now! by Huelsta, a German company I highly recommend.
