At Slovenian market, there are many designs of coffee tables made by different producers. They differ from each other, generally by material and design. Some coffee tables were surveyed; their advantages and disadvantages researched. It was found out that there is a very poor offer of coffee tables for small apartments. According to the results gained by our enquiry, our own coffee table was designed. Its advantage is in multifunction. The questionnaire helped us to find out the best way to design our new product.
