After nearly 3 months of living in our new home together, we are STILL without coffee table. We've been hunting relentlessly but alas no such luck. These days finding an affordable piece of furniture that's made of solid wood as opposed to particle board is very hard to come by. Sure there are a lot of great designs of solid wood, but for 1,800 bucks I don't think so. We find that a mid-century coffee table is a great option...now just trying to find one that we love.
Like this one.
