Coffee Tables and Small Spaces – Can It Be Done?

We moved into a very, very small house a little over a year ago. It has been the cause of my home decorating woes, let me tell you. One of the things Ive had to do without is a coffee table or end table because there really seems to be no room at all for one. Just what we dont need is something else to have to bump into walk around. But lately I started perusing the IKEA magazines for home decorating ideas (they are geniuses at decorating small spaces!) and have found that it IS possible!

Following are some of the awesome coffee tables I have my eye on for various reasons

Possibility #1: This Jofran Wood Lift-Top Coffee Table. Can you say storage??? Love it!

Possibility #2: This 16 x 39 Rectangle Western Red Cedar Coffee Table. I love that its small and thin it would be great for small spaces!

Possibility #3: This West Indies Rectangle Wood Coffee Table. It FOLDS UP for easy storage! Love that!

And because we can never have too many end tables, check out these adorable decorative nesting tables!

So, how important is having a coffee table to you?
