lift top coffee table

My wife and I love watching movies and TV together on the couch. So it’s no surprise we get a lot of use out of our living room. But that also means we like eating our meals in front of the TV and do computer work on the couch as well. We decided a lift-top coffee table would be the perfect addition. Now we can eat in front of the TV by lifting the coffee table top to just the right height. No more sitting awkwardly on the floor and risk spilling drinks. The lifting tops also makes it more convenient to do work on the couch. This coffee table features two lifting tops, perfect for multiple members in the family, and a great fit for living rooms with sectionals.
