There’s an interesting article on Stylelist Home that lists 7 things that are slowly disappearing from our homes–starting with coffee tables. That caught my attention because I recently got rid of mine. Everyone always wants to put their feet up in our house, so we decided an ottoman would be more comfortable. Apparently we aren’t alone in making the switch.
Other things that made the list include full-sized beds and tablecloths. But I’m scratching my head over a couple of them, like nightstands (don’t we all need something to put our Kleenex boxes and books on?). And have to say I’m surprised that TV armoires weren’t mentioned.
I once wrote a post that asked, “Are TV Armoires the Dinosaurs of 2008?” So many people had started switching to flat-screen TVs by that point that I could foresee a day when the big TV cabinets would no longer be needed. Since writing about them, I now have two old armoires in my basement that no longer have televisions in them!
Do you still love your coffee tables and TV armoires? What household items do you think are becoming extinct?
