Coffee tables are industrious pieces of furniture. They perform all sorts of different tasks: a a place for your mail, a place for your two-dozen remotes, a place for your feet, and – of course – a place for your coffee! But coffee tables have the potential to be so much more than another drop zone for your accumulated stuff. They are an absolutely critical component for your living room’s aesthetic. And they're an essential companion for your sofa. Learn the best ways to choose a coffee table for your own home!
In many ways, a coffee table is the centerpiece of your living room. It's the focal point around which we gather, it serves as a conversation starter (thanks to its décor or design), and it anchors the living room as a homey space of leisure and spending time together. Your coffee table—with its physical design or even the books and knickknacks that adorn it—has the power to transform the look and feel of your living space. If you're looking for a refresh to ready your space for holiday entertaining, making over your coffee table is a strong way to start.
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.
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.
