no coffee table, our house is not configured in this fashion. The central locus is our kitchen. Our fridge, walls – just about any free blank space – is covered with coloring pages from my 6yr old daughter, almost exclusively from the movie Cars (the first one, before she was born. She likes that one best) 🙂
If this counts, I do have a copy of “The man who mistook his wife for a hat” (Oliver Sacks) on my nightstand.
