Coffee Table Desk



From the website:

    Adjustable Height Coffee Table

    Our coffee table with lift top brings the tabletop to you

    Top elevates and locks to the ideal dining or working height.

    Great for snacking, doing the crossword or working on a laptop, it's as easy on the eyes as it is on the back.

    Featuring a classic design that complements any décor, there's also ample storage space inside, with plenty of room to store books, magazines, remote controls and other items you need to get to easily.

    An adjustable inner shelf allows you to configure the space to suit your needs.

    • Lifts in two seconds to two different heights.

    • Made of sturdy wood composite materials with birchwood veneer.

    • Inside storage easily accessed through front and back hinged doors.

    • Includes solid brass and wood knobs in your choice of finish.

    • Table is 38"W x 24"L x 20"H.

    Nothing gives away the secret of the coffee table with a twist.


There's no reason other designers can't use the morphing principle demonstrated here in other, more pared-down designs.

Or you could make you own.




In Mahogany (top), Honey or Black finish.

Ikea used to sell one of these in the US called the FUNKA. Not sure why they stopped selling them but I love mine. $40 for the legs, $20 for the elementary school desk top.

I believe you can still see them on Ikea's Singapore and UK websites.
