The side table sits next to the sofa and holds a few sundry items like the phone. It is cheap black metal frame and glass top. I've had it for a long time, and I really don't like it any more. I've totally grown out of the glass surfaces thing. They almost never look good except for the 10 seconds between cleaning them thoroughly and the first fingerprint. So this is what I have set out to replace.
