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.
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.
The living room is typically the most utilized space in any home, which means it certainly deserves your attention (and your eye for design). Whether you use yours to display your favorite artwork, enjoy movies on a big screen, or host the occasional party, the perfect setup is of the utmost importance.
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.
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.
Large coffee table books and conversation-starting knickknacks make even more of an impression on a clear glass coffee table.
