I desperately needed additional storage in my small place, especially for all that clutter that seems to congregate on the sofa, coffee table, and end table. This end table fits the bill precisely. No longer are my multitude of remote controls splayed all over the place. They store neatly under the top surface, leaving a clean, organized look. The bonus is the storage space below, behind the reversible door, along with a positionable shelf. The look is modern and sophisticated; love it!
