Position your coffee table close to your sofa or armchairs so it forms both a useful surface and an anchor to a conversational arrangement of furniture. Keep it within reach but allow enough space to come and go from seating.
Want to make a small living room look less crowded? Opt for a glass coffee table, which frees up visual space with its sleek, see-through design so that the rest of the room's decor shows through.
The standard shapes for coffee tables are rectangular, square, and round. Square and round coffee tables take up the most space. These are ideal for homes that have lots of room to work with in front of the sofa or for room where the sofa and coffee table are being used for conversational seating. If your living room is centered around the TV then a rectangular coffee table is likely your best bet. If you like less clutter then it can certainly be worthwhile to consider a coffee table with built-in storage or a storage shelf. Because a TiVo remote and a Playstation controller aren’t exactly the most beautiful things to stare at.
