I bought this little table in a moment of Goth appreciation. It was standing in the window of a neighborhood antique store violating every principle of efficient design. It’s the devil to dust even with a photographer’s equipment brush, has sharp corners, is sadly a bit rickety, and it’s visually aggressive.
After I brought it home, I learned that it is also the most efficient piece of small-space furniture I have ever owned. It floats from room to room doing whatever we want it to do, the two lower shelves have safety rails, the wide-set feet keep it stable, and after-market magical sliders give it wheel equivalents.
