A coffee table is the literal center piece of your living room. It's perfectly placed so that nearby coffee mugs, cocktail cups, discarded magazines, ornamental books and other nearby collateral is within optimal reach of its storage surface.
If only making the furniture looking more delightful could not make you buy a cocktail table, then its comfortability is going to convince you. The coffee table is the place you put all your hot or cold beverages, light snacks, remote control, magazines or books, whenever you sit in the livingroom. When you are on the sofa there, all these belongings of yours are at the reach of your hand. You can easily grab anything you want, without the need to walk across the room in order to get it. Also, some of the coffee tables have an additional shelf or a few cabinets to store the stuff you would like to keep near. This extra makes these items even more appealing and convenient.
A coffee table is is a low-lying table that is used as a centerpiece for the furniture in the living room. It doesn't really influence the design of the room where you choose to put it but it definitely makes a statement.
Maybe we're still holding on to the one we purchased for our first apartment years ago, or maybe we invested in a piece we love but have never actually taken the time to style it. Whatever the reason may be, a coffee table is often the most overlooked part of a living room, but it's also arguably one of the most important. It's the one item that's at the center of the space, the piece of furniture that people congregate around, and the space where you can truly infuse some personality in your décor.
