Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Russian Doll, cozying up for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of any living room.
Coffee tables don't often drive the design of a room, but they can be a statement piece instead of an afterthought. Equally important as the style you choose, the shape and proportion of your coffee table will make sure it’s a functional team player in your living or sitting room. Here are 10 standouts to help start your search.
The standard shapes for coffee tables are rectangular, square, and round. Square and round coffee tables take up the most space. These are ideal for homes that have lots of room to work with in front of the sofa or for room where the sofa and coffee table are being used for conversational seating. If your living room is centered around the TV then a rectangular coffee table is likely your best bet. If you like less clutter then it can certainly be worthwhile to consider a coffee table with built-in storage or a storage shelf. Because a TiVo remote and a Playstation controller aren’t exactly the most beautiful things to stare at.
