I love recycled furniture. So sick of the plastic crap that warps, is made of cheap materials, slave labour probably and doesn't last. Wish the stores would get savy. I'd rather own one piece of great furniture than a gillion pieces of rubbish over a lifetime. Nuff said!
A console table for right behind the couch. Place a lamp on it. Drawers for papers from the kids - "in," "out," "file," etc. instead of a shelf? Bins underneath could hold a selection of board games, coffee table books, throw blankets, baby toys, more video game accessories (I KNOW - we have a lot).
