    Great idea, it looks really cool. I am just wondering about the quick step “combine them together”. Could you give us some more details? What board did you use for the top? What size has it? What did you do to have enough space for magazines etc. instead of having the board getting in direkt contact with the Lillangen units below? Thanks in advance for your reply and best regards, Florian

    I love this design. The only thing I would add, because I’m so accustomed to having drawers at the couch, are an ekby alex shelf unit on either side, above the Lillangen and below the table top. LOVE that it’s on wheels!!!

    I have searched to find someone who has used the Lillangen upper end unit (not with the mirror unit) in a corner on the wall, by itself, with a Godmorgon (flush with wall)mirror beside — or something to that affect. I can’t believe that no one has used this cute little open corner shelf on it’s own for a small bathroom! ????

    Very cool! The same question as Benjamin has comes to my mind. Is the board on top also from IKEA?
    Thank you!

    Hey thats nice. I have two coffee tables and was wondering how to make the best use of it. I think I can try this out.

    Hello !
    Can someone tell me what is the white (or maybe black & white) board on top of the lillangen end units ? I’m searching for a board like that, and this one could be interesting.
    Thank you, best regards from Dijon, France

    Great use of end units to create a compact coffee table with lots of storage! Just by adding wheels to this ingenious unit makes it easy to maneuver! Great for city living!
