I have positive associations with lily pads for some reason. (I looked at a lot of Monet paintings as a kid?) All I know is that when I saw Blu Dot’s Lily Pad Coffee Table, it seemed right somehow.

The three surfaces at different heights would be ideal for entertaining, I’d think — just imagine that artful spread of napkins and nibbles! And it may even keep clutter at bay in everyday use. If one “pad” is for magazines or glossy hardcover books, one is for remotes and coasters, and one is for flowers or other decorative items, you’d certainly have an easier time editing and arranging. As it is now, my long Danish modern model is less a “coffee table” and more an “old New York Magazine graveyard.” Maybe three really is a magic number.
