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.
In many ways, a coffee table is the centerpiece of your living room. It's the focal point around which we gather, it serves as a conversation starter (thanks to its décor or design), and it anchors the living room as a homey space of leisure and spending time together. Your coffee table—with its physical design or even the books and knickknacks that adorn it—has the power to transform the look and feel of your living space. If you're looking for a refresh to ready your space for holiday entertaining, making over your coffee table is a strong way to start.
The coffee table is one of the most undervalued and yet important pieces of furniture in your living room. If you think about the myriad of uses your coffee table is put to every day, you will appreciate its importance. It's a place for the family to gather, it can be a showcase for your books and ornaments, it's where you can get some last minute work done or where your child does their homework and sometimes it’s where you hurriedly eat your lunch.
Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Russian Doll, cozying up for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of any living room.
