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.
A living room essential, a good coffee table will feel warm and familiar‐and transform any space with refreshing elegance. When choosing the best coffee table for your space, consider the other pieces in your room: are they dark or light? Simple or embellished? Shiny or distressed? Choose a coffee table that complements your existing décor‐or start with a coffee table you love and pick out other pieces to match it!‐to create a cohesive aesthetic.
The living room is typically the most utilized space in any home, which means it certainly deserves your attention (and your eye for design). Whether you use yours to display your favorite artwork, enjoy movies on a big screen, or host the occasional party, the perfect setup is of the utmost importance.
When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture.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.
