    5. Get a storage-savvy coffee table. The name “coffee table” implies that all you’ll be doing is setting a steaming cup of joe down on its surface, but so much more happens with our coffee tables. That’s why going with a storage-packed piece is a good idea. Here, a flat file with wheels offers slim drawers for tucking away remotes, charging chords, magazines, coasters, candles and so much more. See more of this home

    “While my version of eclectic isn’t whimsical, I definitely find the mixing of styles keeps it interesting — for example, my traditional camelback velvet couch mixed with a flat file I stripped, put wheels on and use as my coffee table,” Carlson says. “I got this Henredon couch a decade ago off of Craigslist; a 20-something guy had received it as a hand-me-down after a couple decades in his parents’ formal living room. Needless to say, it wasn’t quite his style, and he sold it to me for $100. Score.”Carlson bought the flat file from Two Jakes when she lived in a small apartment in Brooklyn, New York, and needed to add storage in every creative way she could. “Alex from Two Jakes advised me how to strip the paint and seal the metal. So, I purchased the flat file. My mom and I hauled that bugger up two flights of stairs to my Williamsburg apartment. I refinished it; a friend helped put wheels on it,” Carlson says. “Eight years later and I still love it.”
