Searching, finding and deciding on a coffee table can be a frustrating experience. It always has been for me. While it may not appear to be, this table is, apart from your sofa, the most important piece of furniture in a living room. It needs to be functional (fits the space, effectively displays beautiful and interesting items) and practical (a temporary storage space for a cocktail or plate). It also needs to be stylish, as the one piece of furniture people gather around, look at, and use. This table (from Crate & Barrel’s more affordable line, CB2), perfectly embodies the contrast that defines the Mile High Style aesthetic: place a vase of flowers on top and pair it with an antique sofa.
