It’s hard to explain in words, but having a coffee table in the living room really helps tie the whole space together. Whether you actually use it to rest your legs, place your morning coffee, or just use it as a decorative centrepiece, it’s a small but really important part of a living room setup.
But I get it, when homes in Singapore are getting increasingly small, not everyone would have the space for one.
If you are someone in that camp, perhaps you should consider a bench as a coffee table instead.
Benches are naturally sturdier than coffee tables because they’re designed from the ground up to support more weight. And they are flexible too. Because if you’re not actually serving coffee during the occasion, benches can provide additional seating for your guests....
