The coffee table is the unsung hero of your living room; a style anchor. The ultimate in furniture multi-tasking, its job is to unify the room visually, whilst acting as a footstool, dining table, display surface and storage centre.
Case in point: the collection of coffee tables below. Ranging from a midcentury modern–inspired design to an eye-catching metallic statement piece to an on-trend rattan table, these wallet-friendly finds add instant style to any living room, no matter its décor.
Maybe we're still holding on to the one we purchased for our first apartment years ago, or maybe we invested in a piece we love but have never actually taken the time to style it. Whatever the reason may be, a coffee table is often the most overlooked part of a living room, but it's also arguably one of the most important. It's the one item that's at the center of the space, the piece of furniture that people congregate around, and the space where you can truly infuse some personality in your décor.
Can you imagine a world without coffee tables? Not only would we be missing out on the joy of resting a full cup of joe within arms reach, but we'd be down a majorly decorative element in our living rooms and dens.
Dating from the Victorian era, coffee tables are a necessity for every home. Without placing one in your livingroom, it feels like your furniture is incomplete. Why exactly do you need a coffee table in your house, though?
Rounded edges are the first thing to look for in a kid-friendly coffee table, as you never know how rowdy playtime will get and will want to be mindful of sharp edges and pointy corners.
