Is it possible to have a coffee table with a reclining couch? I have OCD and everything has to be in its place & moving it away from the couch to recline would drive me nuts haha. I tried it away from the couch enough to recline but not have to move it all the time, but it looked odd to me being out in the middle of the room LOL. If I could do LShape with couch & recliner, it might not look like its so far away, but not sure I can do that arrangement with them both reclining. Yes my LR is still giving me fits, thought getting a couch/recliner would take care of it, but nope, it didnt LOL. I so want to knock down a wall to have more room, just cant talk hubby into it haha.This message has been edited. Last edited by: KimMaple,
We solved that problem in our last home by buying a coffee table on wheels.
Great idea but our's is new, bought it over the summer LOL. We really need the coffee table, because when people sit there, they have no place to set drinks, etc. I do have a small end table next to couch, but that takes care of the person sitting there & hubby and Maddie always fight over that spot haha. I sit in the recliner which has end table next to it.
Here is a pic of the coffee table away from the couch. Like this we can put the foot rest up, but can't recline the back to lay all the way back, without moving the coffee table. We usually just put the foot rest up though.
Another couch. View from our bedroom.

Last pic. I promise
The couch is angled a little. I did remove the rug due to it being like a shag kind and it always had cat hair in it. Vacuuming didn't seem to help. I have the same kind of rug in the TV Room but it seems to stay clean in there, the cats tend to hang out in the living room more than they do the TV Room LOL.
Right, me too, i put sliders on my coffee table feets. Works perfect for moving it over a tad.
You can probably get the tiny - 1" round - sliders for your table.This message has been edited. Last edited by: wendek,
Thx. Our coffee table isn't heavy to move, with my OCD, I don't wanna move it lol.
I think the stick on or nail on teflon glides (mentioned above) are a terrific idea for just about any piece of furniture. They all have to moved at some time or another, at minimum for vacuuming/cleaning, plus they are invisible if sized close to the bottom leg. They come in all shapes and sizes now.
Seems coffee tables or ottomans need adjusting often, when the elderly are present, kids or just to make more or less room for anything.
I know what you are saying, Kimmaple. We did not have a coffee table with our reclining couch for just that reason. We did have an end table on each end of our reclining sofa...would that work for you? Otherwise use your coffee table....it is pretty.
I wish I could have end tables at each end of the couch, love that look but no room where couch is now. Only place it works would be the couch in front of the windows and then that puts the TV flat against the wall and u have to look sideways a little from couch to see TV. I tried it one day LOL.
Kim, I USED to re arrange my furniture all the time like you do. I loved re arranging because it looked like a new room and so fresh looking.
BUT...then we bought a large entertainment center. Well guess what. No more arranging my furniture. I sure do miss doing that LOL
So it's the same in there day after day LOL
Haha that wouldnt stop me. Our tv hutch is heavy to move but I still do. I have actually slowed down a little on rearranging, it was the same way for about 3 months, I think thats a record for me LOL.
Looks good, Kim. I'll bet it works for the issues you hoped to resolve.
Did you consider a couple of floating drink tables? That might give you a little more space. Plus, it could be fun to introduce more metal and some glass to visually enlarge the space.
We rearrange seasonally so I'm with you on that. Best of luck to you -
Well it does, because it's big. And there is only one wall that it fits on in my living room. LOL
