My coffee table is one of my favorite Craigslist finds ever. It is oval, marble and I love it...but unfortunately it won't be coming back down stairs until Evan is much older. How I miss you marble coffee table!
When it comes to this kind of stuff - my philosophy is "better safe than sorry"! If I am being honest though we have no coffee table right now and while it's great for Evan to have room to roll around...it's pretty terrible functionally:) Here is what happens. We always lose the remote, all sorts of stuff ends up in the sofa cushions, Matt's beer bottles ends up on the mantle for days, I put my coffee cup on the floor (just asking to get kicked over)!
Eventually I want a soft table that Evan can fall over on and not injure himself and I have started looking at some designs for inspiration.
Andros Sliding Trunk
Okay maybe not the softest place to face plant for a toddler, but not the worst either:) Great for hiding toys and you can slide it opened without having to take everything off the ottoman (which solves the biggest problem I have with storage ottoman functionality). This is a great design.
I have shared this one before. What I love is that is it narrow and works with a layout with two sofas across from eachother. The chinoiserie lines are awesome. I love it in the blush color or this pattern below.
Serena and Lily Rattan Coffee Table
This one is awesome. Round, rattan, not too expensive.
Obviously I had to include some animal print options after seeing Erin gates new ottoman on Instagram.
Or this one gets me every time Emporium Home is incredible. Some day when I win the lottery I am buying this.
While leather might not be the best baby material, this West Elm Leather Ottoman is soft and casual in a way that is perfect for kid friendly spaces.
You might have to refinance your house to buy this - but it is so pretty I had to share. I might considering DIYing this project with the Parsons game table I have in the basement.
