It seems like some of the most functional, multi-use furniture always has something to do with seating areas. There are many chic-looking sofa beds and dual-purpose side tables on the market, but when it comes to the coffee table, it’s relatively slim pickings. Most options either look super similar or cost a fortune.
But one shopper-approved table just so happens to have the perfect feature for any work-from-home office space. The Ktaxon Lift Top Coffee Table, currently on sale for just under $130, comes with a secret compartment that lifts and expands into a roomy desk space. With two adjustable positions that lift the surface more than a foot taller than usual, it’s a great seated desk alternative to transform your living room into an office with minimal effort.
It’s also ideal for those who don’t like to sit at a desk all day, or for parents who need to keep an eye on their kids while they work throughout the day. Instead of spacing out in the living room and den, you can easily fit in the same room with no issue thanks to this useful table.
The dependable and unique design is durable, too. One shopper said they’ve had the table for a year and use the lift function everyday with no issue. Another wrote that the compact size and expandable top makes this table great for small spaces.
“The idea of a lift top is great,” they wrote. “Works very well when you live in a smaller apartment and don't have room for a table.”
While the expandable top is a crowd favorite, shoppers also say the hidden storage cabinets at the bottom are another secret added bonus; many use them for storing large laptops during off-work hours. So if you struggle to turn your “work mode” off at home when the day is done, this feature could certainly help (that don’t see it, don’t touch it mentality works in more ways than one).
The coffee table saves space, then expands it in a few simple steps. It’s the chic and useful item your home office—aka the living room—needs, and it comes at a price your wallet will approve of. Below, shop the expandable coffee table that customers love for nearly $70 off.
