Perhaps you don't have time to read books but you do read magazines. Are your magazines stacked on top of the chair? Here is an idea! A DIY (or have soeone make it for you) pallet magazine holder. Paint it to match your decor.
Superb combination of a coffee table with a floor lamp. Very design, this lamp/table is made from a hollowed tree trunk wood log in which we installed a light, with a glass plate placed on it. This lamp is not for sale, only for your inspiration.
