When looking for innovative decorating ideas for the lounge room you can’t go past the multi-functional innovation that has gone into a lift top coffee table. When these coffee tables are seen in their coffee table mode they look like a typical coffee table, the range of styles and wood used to manufacture them are similar to your average wooden coffee table.
The secret with these types of coffee tables is under the table-top which is set on hinges that allow the top to lift up to the height of a standard dining table. Although you probably wouldn’t use the table as your main dining table, they make a great additional table if you find there is not enough room for everyone to sit down when guests come for dinner.
Alternatively you can use the coffee table when it is in the unfolded position as a desk, giving you a makeshift work space that can be quickly folded away when you are finished.
