Why is the statement coffee table an excellent choice? Because compared to larger ticket living room items such as a sofa or media console, it can more easily be switched out as trends come and go.
The coffee table in the living room is the anchor of your living room, making a design statement and functioning as a visual focal point. This is also one of the messiest surfaces in your home.
Don’t fall under the assumption that having a coffee table is a basic requirement for all living rooms. Especially with smaller rooms where you want to leave as much floor space as possible to give the illusion of more space. If having a coffee table is only going to get in the way, and all you need it for is a handy surface for when you’re sitting on the living room sofa, there are other solutions available. Side tables can provide an out-of-the-way surface for drinks, phones, and books.
