We've been talking about consolidating our remote controls into one universal remote. We want to do so to eliminate the clutter that several remotes create and also to simplify life in general. What we realized is that &mdash we're still going to have to figure out where to put that remote.
It may seem trivial, but it's a good question. We're huge on keeping our living room spotless and detest when remotes are out in the open (we're crazy like that). It's so easy and quick to just throw the remote in a storage ottoman &mdash out of sight out of mind.
We want a modern and unique way to store our remotes, which really attracted us to the Lax Series Coffee Table. The drawer slides in and out to reveal the remote (or whatever else you have hidden away) and then slides back into place to conceal it again. They also have an Entertainment Shelf that does the same thing (we don't actually have a coffee table in our living room).
