use a folding table
Again, to eliminate daily clutter, use a folding tray table instead of keeping a real coffee or side table out to create a more minimalistic feel. This way, when you lounge, you’ll be able to set your coffee (or glass of wine), book, snacks, and phone on a surface, but that surface won’t get in the way when you’re not using it.
(Placing a tray on another chair or ottoman works, too. Yeah, we have even more small living room ideas.)
