I like the idea, but that design is more than a little ugly.


So medium ugly?

Bet you said that at 11pm in the nightclub. 3am on the other hand......
I bought the one linked on ebay around 18 months ago - happy to answer any questions.
Fairly well made and a pretty smooth stable lift action which can be used even with stuff on the table. But yes, need to consider centre of gravity.

Just one to note, I'd consider myself to be good (and dare I say even enjoy) flat pack furniture, but this was one of the most annoying things I've had to put together.

Would like to see some reviews of this to hear how it works in reality. Imagine it could easily tip up if not heavy enough.
Anyone used these guys before?
I’ve not heard of them before today.

It is particle board, which is similar to MDF, but a bit better. But not much.

I had one from IKEA years ago, was very heavy but in reality it was a pain to open as it needs to be clear and 9 times out of 10 we were using it as a coffe table.

Check here for reviews 4.6/5
I guess the only main usage is for hiding coasters and the mountain of remote controls.
Shame it's as ugly as me.
I bought a similar one in black on ebay for £40 a couple off weeks ago.
Yes! It's an extender!

How does the hinge work once open? Is it hydraulic or do you have to lock something in place? Cheers
Been looking for a reasonably priced practical grey coffee table for a while now! Heat!

Tempted to buy but not amazing at flat pack - how difficuly was it?
Been using this model for a year now, really love it, me and the Mrs use it to eat while watching TV. I've also used it to put a keyboard and mouse for some steam link gaming, it's really good.
Bought the same model as this from groupon just over a year ago & it is not bad but does have its share of problems. I probably wouldn’t recommend it.... I’d say look for a slightly better quality one. It’s really low so not that comfortable to eat off but we put it on castor wheels which raises it up about 10cm which helps. The top has bowed in the middle as it is quite thin particleboard. The finish is really weak & marks really easily; it’s like a Slightly glossy paper finish which o thought was laminate but is not. Spilt a drink on it and it stains. Pulled a bit of sellotape of it & it ripped the surface!! Might make a new top for it out of plywood and then resin pour it in a nice design!!
Oh & it’s not the easiest to put together. I’m very handy at diy but this wasn’t easy.

Agree....VERY low at 50cm max hight! Not suitable for eating in front of the tv.

It’s just a hinge, manual one, it kind of goes up and then so bit down when you lift it up and just sits there by gravity.
It’s quite heavy all in all so I can’t complain about it being tipsy or anything.
Bought it from amazon about 2 years ago.
The surface will discolour quite easily as some members already have mentioned.
Very sharp & square edges so if you got any children I would probably look for something else.
I saw something similar in furniture village which obviously was better quality but something like 300£ which ain’t for me.

We always lift it up when we order a takeaway and it will be a decent hight and very stable.

+ Very useful when you need it
+ Extra storage space inside where the hinges are
+ Good entertainment for guests ;D

- Heavy
- Tricky to assemble
- Paint discolouration
- Sharp corners

Hi,
I can see someone else has already replied to this and as they've said, once you open it far enough / fully the centre of gravity is such that it stays properly open.
Its not at danger of flipping back to closed or anything if you nudge it up a bit, as you'll need to lift it a bit from its 'open' position before it wants to stay closed.
If I remember correctly (I moved out the place and left the furniture so can't check) but the hinge is spring-loaded, not hydraulic, but this helps with a lower effort motion.

Tempted to buy but not amazing at flat pack - how difficuly was it?


Hi,
If you've tried a lot of flat pack, then id say the normal gold standard of annoyance is IKEA chest of drawers, and this is a little worse but not loads more.
Theres a lot of flat panels (eg 1 top / 4 for the internal storage / 1 for storage base / 1 of undershelf / 2 for each leg x4 legs) which are joined with a fairly standard pin and twist lock, with a dowel if I remember correctly. I do remember being in disbelief just how many little fasteners were needed. The instructions and labelling of the flat panels was pretty poor if I remember right, so there was a dry run needed to figure out where everything went.

The main frustrations for me were twofold:
- certain parts of it are defo a 2 person job to hold things straight when fixing, esp the lid. I was living alone at the time, so grew tired of making the correct height stack of books etc instead of a second pair of hands
- the hinge joining points seemed poorly thought out. There isn't much clearance room to get a screwdriver in, and some of the screw holes didn't line up so I ended up doing new pilot holes (but Wood is soft enough you can probably get away without). Again, certainly a second set of hands to support the weight is useful

TL,DR; you don't need technical skills, but you do need patience, a willingness to problem solve a little, and ideally a second pair of hands helping. I put it together alone in around 90 mins.
Does anyone know of a place I could get a decent circular or oval coffee table? I'm done with sharp corners.
These are really poor quality and not worth the price here.

The springs do the hard work.
Was reading this as a potential solution to a modern living problem.

Reading the reviews I am satisfied that this is low end version and might try to find a more robust implementation.

Not voting either way but I admit that a 900 degree plus heat on something with the comments written here brings me back to my core belief of ignoring temp on HUKD.
I haven't been on here much recently. It appears to have gone massively down hill if a table that is regularly under £50 on eBay is considered to be 900+ degree deal. Is there some kind of sponsorship going on these days? I thought 'Latest Deals' had some bad posts but it seems the two sites are competing now to see who can advertise the most tat!
I have one from IKEA and been using it for a year now I love how it can be used with the part of it lifted so I can use the laptop in living room. Or the kid can eat dinner on it. If its any close in quality as the IKEA one then it's a bargain since I've paid over £100 for ours

It's all commission based, a lot of good deals get pulled as they'll only show a deal if it's an affiliate link. MSE is better it that respect, but harder to navigate

Ikea will be better quality imo
Not compared them next to each other but got other furniture from ikea and I can see that the build quality and materials are way ahead.

We’ve had one for 4 years and the quality is poor.
The only real benefit is having somewhere to hide your clutter.
Edited by: "Nigel_Owen" 9th Apr
got the Ikea version which is very sturdy and closes on a slow pneumatic action.
Its deeper storage but doesnt have the bottom shelf

Love it and gets used every day
