I get ask a lot about our gorgeous coffee table that we got late last year.
It is a mid century inspired beauty from John Lewis, which we had spotted last autumn when browsing for corner sofas in our local branch. I love this coffee table because of it obvious vintage design influence But I think what truly makes this table great is that it has storage.
I really couldn’t go back to having a coffee table without storage now, its just so handy for whisking stuff away for a quick tidy up. I use it as a home for my laptop charger, some of my books, some of the kids books and perhaps the Sunday papers, when we actually get time to buy/read them that is. Its a rare treat!
I’ve searched around for other coffee tables with storage so you don’t have to… I swear you wont go back!
First up is another Mid Centurey inspired table from Swoon Editions. This one is a rectangular shape, traditional for a coffee table, but has a nifty little drawer and shelf. To store your magazines, TV controls or Lego…
Next up is this unique hammered, rose gold coffee table from Habitat. This would look great in a bohemian living room. And to be honest, on first looking at this table I assumed the top came off to reveal storage inside… I’m now doubtful it does as the description doesn’t state it, but I believe that it is hollow (I read the assembly instructions) so I suppose you could store/hid stuff underneath it- great for a quick tidy up idea. If you do want one designed for storage- where the top comes off, Habitat do this one too.Another Mid Century and Scandi inspired table with storage, in this case a shelf, is this one from Dunelm Mill. Pictured is the Oak version but they do one in Walnut too if the vintage look appeals more than the Scandi. Although I like both. They also do one with a similar feel to my John Lewis one- see here, but with a drawer.Do let me know which one is your favorite, does your current coffee table have storage?
