This black coffee table sits low (Since most furniture is moving in this direction), with high functionality, and style. The sides are big drawers that could hide your crap that you don't want others to see, yet you can not even tell it has drawers. the joints are invisible unless you really pay close attention; in my book thats a plus. so whether your style is crisp and clean, laid back and comfortable, modern, or traditional, this coffeee table is great. oh and the price is great to under $150 at Ikea.
