I lead a very busy life and find that there is never enough storage space in my home for my grandchildren’s iPads, my books and all my husband’s magazines, so I was delighted to receive this beautiful, classic two tone design, Willow Farmhouse Wood Coffee Table with storage drawers from Furniture123 / Buy It Direct group. The table is in a contemporary shade of cream with a solid light oak top, and fits in perfectly with my living room colour scheme. This lovely table is extremely sturdy, unlike many of the similar flimsy versions currently for sale, and has smooth edges so there is no danger of bumping into sharp corners and injuring yourself. The table comes ready assembled, which is a huge bonus for me as I am absolutely useless when it comes to building items of furniture. Another great idea is the fact that the drawers can be opened from either side and have really stylish chrome cup handles on both sides which can either screwed into place or just left fastened inside the drawers if the table is to be placed flat against a wall.
As soon as the packaging was removed and the table was placed on the rug in front of my living room sofa, my young grandson Oliver made a beeline for it and immediately placed his iPad in one of the drawers, so he now knows exactly where to keep it safe. There is lots of space for all the items which we need to store safely without cluttering up my living room, so now all my essential items can easily be hidden away, making my room look so much tidier. There is also a very handy shelf underneath for extra storage for newspapers and other items which you need to be able to easily access.
At 47cms high, the coffee table is an ideal height for placing your drinks when settling down to watch television with a glass of wine, and with the lovely wipe clean light oak top, it is extremely easy to clean if any drinks are accidentally spilled. I also do lots of crafts with my grandchildren and knowing that the table is so easy to keep clean means that we can use it for this purpose too.
This gorgeous classic piece of furniture measures 100cms wide and 50cms deep so it is the perfectly proportioned without taking up too much room in your home. It is beautifully constructed from cream lacquered pine and solid light oak and looks much more expensive than it actually is.
I am so happy with this Willow Farmhouse coffee table as it makes a perfect addition to my living room. There is a range of matching furniture, including smaller side tables and a TV stand so it would be lovely to buy one or two of the other items to give my home that quaint cottage feel.
I was given a delivery option and notified by text and e-mail when the parcel was due to be delivered and after a slight hiccup which was swiftly rectified, I received the package. The customer service advisor was extremely helpful and polite, making ordering the coffee table effortlessly easy.
If you are looking to buy a classic, stylish coffee table for your home, then I would recommend you buy the Willow Farmhouse design as it will look fantastic in any setting and it looks absolutely gorgeous in my living room.
