Be sure to check out some of the awesome gift guides that are out there via your favorite bloggers on ideas for unique Christmas presents. Several in particular that I have enjoyed come from design*sponge and DesignWorkLife.

Also, I came across this picture (also from design*sponge) of artist Maria Vettese’s living room (check out the entire home tour here). She uses a skinny bench as a coffee table. Hmmm….yet another idea to keep in mind for the coffee table quest. I love the look of it but also like how it doesn’t take up much space yet still serves its function. Plus I’d feel better about putting my feet up on a bench than a traditional coffee table. Thoughts?

Love the skinny bench. Easier for the dogs to navigate around too.

Perfect!! My Sister In Law has an old bench as a table and it’s awesome. I like lots of your other ideas, too, but this one may be easier to find.
