When it comes to choosing décor for your home, it's often the simplest choices that end up being the most difficult. A coffee table may seem to be nothing more than a standard piece of furniture – an after-thought once the sofas, chairs and other pieces have been selected. However, after taking into account the many other factors you'll need to consider, it may become a much bigger job than you've anticipated.
Add interest to your coffee table by varying the heights of collated objects. In this example, the various heights creates a sense of contrast, while the use of colour pulls it all together. Need extra height? Stack books and pop a scented candle on top.
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.
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.
