“ Brand: Argos / Type: Coffee Table „
My boyfriend has just moved into a new flat, where I am staying with him for the summer until I go back to university. We went back to the flat straight after our holiday in Rome and he hadn't really spent any time there himself until now. Unfortunately, this also meant he hadn't had time to buy furniture so I thought I would help him out. Before buying any furniture, the flat didn't really seem like home and it didn't looked lived in yet and this was something I wanted to change.
A coffee table is something that I think every living room should have and I also wanted somewhere where I could sit and write quite comfortably. Not wanting to spend a fortune or get anything too big, I checked out Argos knowing that they do some good, value range furniture. The Sasha coffee table range is the cheapest that Argos do and the tables come in a range of finished. I opted for oak as I think beech looks a little cheaper. The colour would also match our leather sofas and other things we have in the living room. Another colour option was black but this would have been far too dark.
At £14.99, this coffee table was a bargain. I paid for this online, along with some other bits and pieces and was able to choose delivery for whatever day I wanted. Delivery cost £5.95 though so it wouldn't have been worth it had I not ordered other things as well. The table was delivered flat packed, meaning it needs to be put together yourself. The table comes with the main table top with four legs separately. The legs screw in really easily with no tools needed. One screw is placed in each leg and then twisted into the back of the table top to secure them. Assembly took only a couple of minutes.
The size of the table is H45, W45, L90cm which makes it rectangular shaped. As the table isn't too big, it will fit in most living rooms comfortably without taking up too much space. Ours fits really nicely in front of our window and on top of a lovely rug, which I also got from Argos at the same time. The legs aren't as stable as they probably could be but seeing as we won't be moving the table around and what we paid for it, I don't mind this at all. I would definitely purchase something from this range again, especially as they have matching items.
