The level of functionality your coffee table offers depends on how you want to use it. While most coffee tables have a flat surface supported on a base, there are plenty that offer additional features.
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.
People are now much more heavily invested in making the right design choices for their home and they are far more open to innovative and cutting edge design. The rise in the number of interior design websites and blogs, showcased by The Telegraph, shows that people’s thirst for exploring the latest trends is not going to be disappearing any time soon. This means that even the simplest piece in a room, such as a coffee table, will have been chosen with considerable care.
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.
The coffee table is often called the centerpiece of the room. But you will notice that the same term is often used for a sofa, a rug, or any other piece of furniture.
A living room essential, a good coffee table will feel warm and familiar‐and transform any space with refreshing elegance. When choosing the best coffee table for your space, consider the other pieces in your room: are they dark or light? Simple or embellished? Shiny or distressed? Choose a coffee table that complements your existing décor‐or start with a coffee table you love and pick out other pieces to match it!‐to create a cohesive aesthetic.
