If you don’t have a serving tray, chances are you need one. This is one very versatile accessory: Large trays can be put on ottomans to make coffee tables. Small ones can gather your keys, manage your mail or your jewelry either in your bedroom, dining room or your entryway.
Round trays are perfect for serving drinks; while trays with handles let you carry appetizers with ease. High-sided trays can be useful to organize your stuff and low-sided trays can serve as a background for your collections. Once you have one tray, you’ll find uses for more. They convey, they contain, and at these prices, they can come home with you.
