I purchased this sofa table and the matching end table and I'm very pleased with this addition to my family room. We got the sofa table as a place to put cell phones and iPads so they could recharge and still be readily accessible where we hang out the most. The lower shelf gives me someplace to store our family photo albums. The coffee table is great because we can tuck laptops out of the way when not in use on the self underneath. It fits our lifestyle and decor, so everyone's pleased!
