VERSATILITY IS a key attribute. I favor pieces that
not only meet specific needs, but also offer
choices when you want to change the décor.
This “kitchen” island also works as a console,
media cart or sofa table in the living room; a buffet or bar in the dining room; an entry table in
the hallway; or in a guest room.
Constructed of poplar wood with birch
veneers, with a galvanized zinc countertop, it
features casters to easily move it anywhere. The
wheels have a pin locking system to keep the
console stationary, as well as a rubberized coating so they won’t scratch flooring. The upper
cabinet is preassembled, with tempered glass
side panels and two center drawers. Fully
assembled, it measures 60. 9 inches wide by 38
inches tall by 20 inches deep. The countertop
can support up to 200 pounds, and the lower
shelf, which can double as a wine rack, can hold
up to 50 pounds.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more versatile
piece of furniture, at this amazing Costco value.

Leather Reclining Sofa
IT’S NO secret that sitting too long may be bad for your health. Some suggest it can lead
to weight gain, diminished energy levels, back pain and even heart issues. Ergonomic
studies suggest that alternating sitting and standing during your workday may be better
for you. Yet, if you have a small business or a home office, the cost of a desk with sit-stand capabilities may be beyond your budget.
That’s why I like the Lift101 Sit-Stand Desk Converter. Right out of the box it gives you
the ability to stand or sit at your existing sitting desk. This converter holds up to 25
pounds and fits on any desk surface 24 inches deep or larger. It features a large keyboard
tray with integrated cable management, so messy electric cords don’t get in your way. It
even has a cellphone and tablet slot for easy viewing while you work. The rich chocolate
finish goes with almost any color scheme. And, of course, there’s the easy height adjustment, up to 12. 5 inches vertically. Item #1158048. Warehouse only. —Casey Mangold
