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.
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.
Once you've decided what aspects of practical design you want to prioritize, it's time for the fun bit—picking out the piece that best fits your unique sense of style. Unless you're going for an eclectic look, you'll likely want to pick a coffee table that goes with the design style of the rest of your space. Ahead, take a look at some of the best coffee tables for every type of living room—from traditional to contemporary.
When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture. Its job is not only to tie the room together but to also meet your daily needs. For instance, if you have children, you'll want to consider rounder edges and perhaps even a soft material like leather for a kid-friendly piece of furniture. On the other hand, if you have a vast collection of books and objects that you'd like to display, a larger table with storage shelves may be more appropriate.
