You might want to work the nishi coffee table towards the western side of a room and give the higashi a home to the eastern side. It's quite easy to establish this arrangement if you've already set up your bed or your couch so that you face the north and south axis. Stack the EastWest Type Tables for a very different piece that instantly spells out "wider world."
