Love the SOFA TABLE IDEA! I've been thinking about replacing my current desk with a sofa table for a while now. Sofa tables are taller and narrower, saving space, but splurging on style. It also encourages a clutter-free work-space with minimal storage.
I have a ton I books which sit on a shelf that serve no purpose any longer. Keeping the essentials and adding more decor looks much more appealing. Add a well decorated bookshelf to a room, best/easiest decorating secret ever!
