My readers know that I like minimal things as it is a challenge to make our lives simpler. This minimal coffee table offers simplicity and book storage all in one piece of furniture. I like this piece first off due to its minimalism. Now of course it can come in more colors and finishes to match it to any living room. The other thing I find interesting is its size. Pictured here it is almost a stand-alone piece of furniture next to the sofa. Due to its size, this table could work behind a sofa, in front of a sofa, along a wall, or even as a TV stand. The storage compartment underneath is a neat place for books or other objects that you may want to keep there.
