Akbar Cinemas (aka my living room) has two tier seating. The front row is a three seat couch and behind that is the platform (8 inches off the ground) with space for 2-3 extra seats. Right now there are two tv trays acting as a table behind the couch but the platform doesn’t have much table space. So the following idea dawned on me for a new sofa table.
Here is the table closed:
(the “gray” will more than likely be the same finish as the sides, I kept it gray to differentiate between the two parts)
Now, when the table is closed, the back row seating can’t really reach it. So the table will be made to open and allow the back seat to have room for their drinks and snacks
Now, with the table “open” you will notice the different color panel on the inside. This is a secondary “top” to not allow anything from the main top to fall in. However, it also hides a secret compartment! Watch the following short video to see both “lids” open:
(please ignore the “related” videos on youtube. Apparently if you put in “couch sofa” as a tag for the video, you get linked to stupid porn videos)
The inner “secret” compartment will house my various folders of DVDs that I store my media in allowing for quick access for viewing.
