How to get it
OLSERÖD is two tables in one. A smart side table that you slide in front of you on the sofa to eat while watching TV – and then you can quickly transform it into a stylish coffee table when friends visit.
You can quickly transform this multifunctional table from a slightly higher side table into a lower coffee table to suit all the different activities that take place around the sofa.
The smart design of the side table allows you to slide the table top over your lap and enjoy a proper dinner while watching TV, without risking spills or the underframe getting in the way of your legs.
Stable to eat on and with a table top that has enough room for a plate, glass and cutlery – and the table top is easy to wipe clean when you're done.
You transform the table by removing the table top from the underframe, turning the underframe on its side and then fixing the table top in place again by using the fasteners under the table top.
The fabric pouch under the table top is a smart storage space for small items you want close at hand. The pouch is fixed to the underframe with touch-and-close fastening so it’s easy to remove and wash.
You can decide how tightly the pouch is fixed to the underframe. Looser screws make it possible to pivot the pouch, so it easily adjusts to the desired function.
A clean shape, an industrial expression and toned-down colours mean that the table goes with most decors and becomes a nice design element in the entire home.
You can easily lift and move the table around to use it in different rooms and contexts, for example by the armchair in the reading corner.

Great little tableVerified ReviewerPerfect for hobbies etc, slides under the chair so you can get really close to your work. Nice big surface to work on plus the little "shelf" holds things like pens and brushes.5
Nanna loves itVerified ReviewerMy nanna needed a sturdy side table/coffee table for her chair. She absolutely loves it and is fascinated by by its adaptability.5
Such a great desk when working from home!Verified ReviewerI had initially been using the BJÖRKÅSEN desk, however, upon discovering the larger alternative with an added storage pouch on the IKEA website, I was immediately intrigued.
Not only does this new option provide more surface area, but the cleverly integrated storage pouch also caught my attention. One notable advantage is its improved fit beneath the sofa compared to the BJÖRKÅSEN, which has significantly enhanced my comfort while working from home.
On the weekends, I also find myself turning the desk into my coffee table due to its impressive multi-functional design.
While I have noticed a slight wobbliness at times when leaning on the desk edges, it hasn't detracted from my overall positive experience. The convenience and practicality of the design outweigh this minor concern. And the affordability of the product is truly unbeatable.
The transition from the BJÖRKÅSEN desk to this new one from IKEA has been a game-changer for my work-from-home setup.5
Versatile but flimsyVerified ReviewerLove the table but the clips holding the table top on are really flimsy and one snapped after 2 days - currently unable to buy spares. Still use the table but the surface isn't secure3
A bit disappointed about the designVerified ReviewerThe design idea is good, this table has multi-function but just that the pouch often flips over when I put stuff inside it ,e.g. my TV remote control. Tried tight the screws but the pouch keeps flipping over.3
Very good tableVerified ReviewerMy daughter was very happy with this purchase, she said it was very easy to build and change from table to coffee table5
Very useful desk for limitedVerified ReviewerVery useful desk for limited space4
