When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture. Its job is not only to tie the room together but to also meet your daily needs. For instance, if you have children, you'll want to consider rounder edges and perhaps even a soft material like leather for a kid-friendly piece of furniture. On the other hand, if you have a vast collection of books and objects that you'd like to display, a larger table with storage shelves may be more appropriate.
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.
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.
Whether you're looking for someplace soft to put up your feet or for a formal finishing touch, the right living room coffee table can pull your entire room together.
