It’s true that coffee tables come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. When our son was real little, we had a big sturdy coffee table that he could play on and we could even sit on. We moved when he was nearly three and got rid of that coffee table. For the longest time, we didn’t even have a coffee table, but several years ago we decided that we were ready to have a coffee table again. This time I wanted something that was not a traditional coffee table. I really like what we chose. I don’t think we’ll ever go back to not having a coffee table again. It’s too handy and convenient to have one!
