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.
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.
Coffee tables with rounded edges help your living room to flow, both visually and practically so if you're challenged for space, look to a circular style or one with a rounded shape.
