The coffee table is often called the centerpiece of the room. But you will notice that the same term is often used for a sofa, a rug, or any other piece of furniture.
A coffee table doesn't need to take up tons of space to make an impact. Clean design makes an impression no matter the size.
Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Russian Doll, cozying up for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of any living room.
When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture.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.
