Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
Dating from the Victorian era, coffee tables are a necessity for every home. Without placing one in your livingroom, it feels like your furniture is incomplete. Why exactly do you need a coffee table in your house, though?
The coffee table is a natural focal point of any living room. Think of it as a haven to display your design curation prowess, from artful literature selects to thoughtfully composed vignettes. If you're redecorating on a budget, investing in a new living room coffee table is an efficient and affordable way to make a big impact with only a minor tweak.
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.
The coffee table is the unsung hero of your living room; a style anchor. The ultimate in furniture multi-tasking, its job is to unify the room visually, whilst acting as a footstool, dining table, display surface and storage centre.
Getting the edge on a sophisticated look in your living and/or dining room comes down to decluttering your space and opting for furnishings that provide maximum functionality for your bucks and there’s a reason the classic sideboard is enjoying a renaissance.
Sofa is usually the first major piece of furniture we invest in for our living rooms—and, arguably, for our homes. One of the larger pieces of furniture, it's also the one we spend the most time on (other than our beds), and we often have very strict ideas of how comfortable it should be. So it's no wonder that this piece of furniture gets most of our attention when decorating a living room. But there's another important piece of the puzzle that often gets neglected: the coffee table.
