Hello AT, We are trying to make our one-bedroom apartment more toddler-friendly by getting rid of the oversized furniture, reducing clutter and creating more play spaces for our two-year old.

We are in the midst of re-doing the living room and have settled on a Room and Board Eugene sofa in a child-friendly, darkest brown microfiber and shirt-stripe Flor tiles with red, orange, fuschia, brown, white and lime stripes. The dilemma: What to do for a coffee table? We want something that children can use as a play surface but don't know whether that means we should go with a kids' table that can double as a coffee table or a coffee table that can double as a kids table. (It would be tough to make room for both.) Some options we are considering: Modern classics (big splurge) Saarinen in white laminate, oval or round: hivemodern.com www.dwr.com Kids table doubling as coffee table www.modernseed.com www.2modern.com Another option: www.eboniste.com What say you? Cheers, Mama Chilanga Anyone????
