There are many people who begin to do without the center table in the living room, I agree that it can be replaced by other elements, such as a pouf, but eliminate it ... I don't think, I need or at least I love having something in front of the sofa, because I give it many uses and of the most diverse.
The coffee table is traditionally used for support objects like ashtrays, remote controls ... Also to serve something to eat or drink, snack, snack ... I actually even use it sometimes for food or dinner with some auxiliary tray ... But there is another use that is most typical although sometimes we do not want to recognize it and is to support the feet.
Given that sometimes the center table we use it to eat, to put our feet on it is a bit of an unpleasant nursery, there is a certain incompatibility between doing those two things in the same place, it seems that it does not fit, but let's recognize it, actually it is done.
So considering that it is a most common practice, in Objeti they have decided to find a solution, so that the coffee table can serve all its functions without excluding any and in a much more hygienic way, so they have divided their coffee tables into sectors that rotate on themselves 180 degrees, which are reversible and on the one hand rigid and on the other padded.
We can turn one or several of the pieces that make up the surface to support the feet without repairs, it is also much more comfortable, because in reality the table itself is hard, sometimes one chooses to put a cushion but with this idea it will no longer be necessary, on the one hand we have a center table normal and current and on the other a soft and comfortable foot rest.
I thought it was a great idea, a sign of sincerity and intelligence on the part of the firm, recognize a frequent and habitual use in our daily life of an element such as the coffee table and readjust its design in a functional way to make it more practical and comfortable for us, when I re-furnish a room I will keep it in mind.
