Good Questions: Alternatives for a Dining/Working Table?

Sara sent us a good question from Seattle: We are dying to redecorate our apartment and need all the help we can get. We've rented it for almost 3 years and it is time from some improvement. My husband and I have a small one bedroom in Seattle (roughly 650 square feet I think). The main space is the living room and there is no dining or office areas. We currently have a bulky desk in the living room, but are looking for something that can serve as a desk and eating area...

Ideally it would have storage so we could hide office clutter, but also work as a dining/table. We found the Bedford Project Table at Pottery Barn, but it is spendy and maybe too large. Does anyone know of any other possibilities for our fairly small living/dining/office area (roughly 14" by 13" though oddly shaped)?

Please share your ideas for a good table for a dining room that also functions as a workspace with Sara in the comments below...
