Promising review: “I love this coffee table so much. We recently had a baby, and our current coffee table was way too big and so heavy to move. This table is the perfect size and very easy to move when needed. The storage under the top is perfect to keep everything in that you don’t use all the time, and the shelf on the bottom is a great place to put things when you need the top clear for game night with the family. I have a very tall husband, and the fact that the top lifts up is wonderful for him and his back when doing computer work or eating that late night snack while watching TV.” Rachel
