Because we do most of our weekday dining on the coffee table... i think we need to get a new one because ours is too small, and out of proportion with our sofas. Also the shelf seems to turn into an black hole, and the remotes are NEVER on the table.
Necessity is the mother of invention as they always say... so why settle for someones design. Our new coffee table will be a 80cm square(steph balks at 1m), no black hole shelf, so you can sit under it. a small drawer for the remotes. and the Pièce de résistance, a sunken circle in the centre, in which a lazy susan could sit in it, flushed. That way we could have our chinese meals in front of the TV, and not miss out on the food on the far side or have to reach over. Now i wonder if i can get some better homes and garden person to make this?
