I’ve read so many times that the key to living comfortably in cramped spaces is multifunctional furniture.
I use the same coffee table for work and for, well, my morning coffee. And when I’m not using it, I fold it up and stow it in the gap between the refrigerator and the kitchen counter. Poof, it’s gone. Simple.
I sure have been tempted once or ten times to buy a true-blue work desk — the swanky one with drawers and a wider surface. But I don’t have space for it! And the coffee table is doing the job just fine. So stick with it I did.
I couldn’t be happier.
