Selecting a Compelling Coffee Table

A coffee table is often the anchor for a room.

A coffee table shouldn’t be an insignificant afterthought near the end of planning your living room, den or great room. It’s a pivotal design element that can add drama and personality to your interior design plan.

Because a coffee table is often the anchor for a room, selecting it is key to your design plan. The table should be in scale with your furniture and the size of your room, complement your design plan, and provide the needed functions.

Consider your coffee table requirements.

What functions do you want your coffee table to provide?

Select…

  • A durable surface, if you’re planning to serve food or drinks
  • Lightweight design, if you want to move the table on occasion
  • A large size, if you’d like to display a collection of favorite books or objects
  • No sharp corners, if you have children or seniors visiting often

Think outside the box when it comes to material and shape.

We most often think of coffee tables being constructed from wood, and a hand-crafted wood coffee table can be the perfect choice. But do consider innovative materials such as glass, stone, leather or metal. You can even use an upholstered ottoman as your coffee table.

If you want your room to appear larger, think about a mirrored surface or a glass surface that doesn’t hide your beautiful rug or flooring.

Be creative about the shape and size of your table too. Instead of a typical square or rectangular table, think round, oval, hexagonal or freeform.
