i'm currently using the floor <not recommended with toddlers/cats/dogs> or dc's plastic chairs. i used to have a coffee table in the middle of the room but it's a small room with two doors and the coffee table made the space very awkward. i was thinking of getting a nest of tables but are they very old fashioned now? the only people i know that have them are my mum and aunt and they are both dark mahogany sets that would look wrong in my living room as all my woodwork is white.
any suggestions what i could get that wont take up lots of space or cost a fortune?
We've got a little table in the corner of the living room, which I put my drink on. So its on the other side of the armrest, rather than in front of me. It's just a little plain bog-standard table from Ikea, very cheap & cheerful!
I have a coffee table or the hatch behind the sofa. I also have a glass nest of tables, meh I don't care about being old fashioned as fashion always come back round again anyway. <words of old lady wisdom at 24>
ooh thanks for replies. i wasn't expecting so many!
i think i'll go for a nest of tables so that there is a spare table for friends sitting on the sofa/other chair.
not so keen on the clear ones. a bit too modern for me but will have a look for something in between clear and mahogany
i used to use the arm of the sofa or the middle seat of it but it got really badly marked with cup rings. this is a new (well new to me, inherited from my nana) suite and so far it's in decent nick and i want to keep it like that (HA!) for as long as i can.
