A coffee table doesn't need to take up tons of space to make an impact. Clean design makes an impression no matter the size.
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?
Stylish places to stow your odds and ends are critical in the living room. Whether it's big or small, fancy or casual, the living room is likely the most public and communal space in the house—it's where you entertain guests, so it's gotta make a good impression.
With useful and beautiful objects. Keep items within only two categories: essential or loved, styling them in groups together. Hide remote controls in attractive boxes, stack design books neatly together in colour coded piles and top with a beautiful object or accessory.
No matter how big or small your home is, there never seems to be quite enough storage space to go around. That's why it pays to sneak as much extra storage as you can into your space, so you can hide away clutter in style. And since your coffee table is probably always covered in stuff (think magazines, remotes, coasters, various knickknacks...), it only makes sense to get a coffee table that doubles as a place to stow away your stuff. And no, I'm not talking about getting a coffee table with a bottom shelf—I mean a table complete with secret, hidden storage compartments, like pop-up tops and unsuspecting drawers. Your living room will look so much neater, and you'll feel a little bit like a secret agent, so it's really a win-win situation.
Whether you're looking for someplace soft to put up your feet or for a formal finishing touch, the right living room coffee table can pull your entire room together.
