TV Tray Revival?

Quality aside with consumer demand in mind, we sell a lot of TV Tray Tables. And for some that can be surprising… so what makes the TV Tray necessary in the modern world?

Oval TV Tray Table Set at Manchester WoodFor my family, kids are the movers and shakers. So it’s an easy choice that a TV tray can be an instant table surface for them. It also serves as a great morning item for us. When the kids are up, they want to watch their favorite cartoons, and we need to feed them, so it helps there too. Our TV tray tables get a lot of work actually and get cleaned often under their heavy use. Even when I work from home, I find it as my primary desk while I catch up on news, write emails, and take phone calls.

The more I’ve thought about it… it makes perfect sense why the TV tray is in such high demand again. It’s mobile furniture, much like the rest of our lives these days. It takes little space, but also very productive, and acts as a tool in many different functions.

You’re in luck because you’ve come across perhaps the best quality TV tray tables on the market at Sturdy, solid, our hardwood TV tray tables are that and much more. Many of our customer testimonials and reviews found on our site and Amazon will state that.

A preview of one of them can be found in this blog post with the new Portable Folding Tray Table Desk Set.

As we’re nearing the new school year we’ve focused a lot on our solid wood TV tray tables. Promoting sales, giveaways, and the practicality of TV folding trays this approaching season. They make great sense for a family whose schedule is about to fill up with schoolwork and events – keeping the whole family on the go (we’re looking at you Mom and Dad!). Our television trays – or simply folding trays – for their portability and uses far beyond the TV, have seen a recent resurgence in the marketplace.

Whether wrapping up homework in the anxious frenzy of catching some entertainment, or finalizing business work for the day feeling the same. A folding tray table can provide the portability and function beyond the role of traditional TV table trays catering to the multi-tasked. How about tight spaces? In a kid’s room or even in our main living space, furniture that provides practicality in efficiency and function is key. Our folding TV trays sets are certainly a given in this area. They’re easy to put away for tight storage, whether on their stand in a corner, or folded up in the closet. You don’t need a desk, but need a workspace? A portable workspace can be provided for everyday with a tray table. The perfect resolution is a long-lasting, sturdy solid wood table that has the quality and feel of a high-end shaker desk, yet it’s small, light, and incredibly practical.
