A coffee table is the literal center piece of your living room. It's perfectly placed so that nearby coffee mugs, cocktail cups, discarded magazines, ornamental books and other nearby collateral is within optimal reach of its storage surface.
Want to make a small living room look less crowded? Opt for a glass coffee table, which frees up visual space with its sleek, see-through design so that the rest of the room's decor shows through.
A good coffee table is a practical piece that can pull together a whole room. More sculptural designs make a style statement and provide a focus within a large space.
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.
