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.
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.
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.
An elegant coffee table can transform the look and feel of your living room to a great extent. The tables come in a variety of designs and styles. They can be made of different kinds of materials like wood, glass, metal, plastic and other synthetic materials using various colors and finishes.
Coffee tables don't often drive the design of a room, but they can be a statement piece instead of an afterthought. Equally important as the style you choose, the shape and proportion of your coffee table will make sure it’s a functional team player in your living or sitting room. Here are 10 standouts to help start your search.
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.
