The Ikea Stockholm coffee table is a great buy for those on a bit of a tight budget, yet still seek modern style and sofistication. I use this table in my living room in a rather small apartment--the size is perfect and the table itself is sleek. The shelf on the bottom adds much needed storage in my small space which is perfect for books, movies, magazines, and even my laptop. The table is also easy to clean, but be careful to remember coasters! This table would be easily ruined by just one cold glass being placed on top without something underneath to protect! The major bonus of this coffee table is its versatility and timeless look--I know I will be able to use this for years to come.
