Can you please ____ your feet from the coffee table?

A. move
B. remove

Note: Which one you prefer and why?
If we put B., wouldn’t the sentence be a little bit redundant, since we already have “from”?

    No redundancy. B. "remove your feet from the coffee table" means your feet are (resting) on top of the coffee table. "move your feet from the coffee table" implies the unlikely situation that your feet, for whatever reason, are somehow too close to the coffee table (and coffee tables don't usually bite). Even then, I'd be inclined to say "mover your feet *away* from the coffee table".
