The Contained Grouping. Grouping together a collection of dissimilar items and placing them in a beautiful serving or decorative tray creates cohesion to the display. This type of approach is particularly good if your coffee table has an uneven surface (for example, like that of a tufted ottoman) or if your items don’t show well when placed directly on the surface of the coffee table.
When you have two sofas or any larger seating arrangement, a big coffee table might seem like the obvious solution. But also consider a pair of matching coffee tables. They will keep the focus off one large piece of furniture and let your eye move around the room more easily. One classic coffee table size is 48 by 24 inches, so you can plan on that when thinking about your furniture arrangement. A large coffee table is often double that: 48 inches square.
Wood has been the coffee table material of choice for years, however there are so many other material options to choose from. Unsurprisingly, upholstered coffee tables have been rising in popularity because the options are virtually endless. Whether tufted or flat, square or round, vinyl or leather, patterned or solid, upholstered coffee tables are a perfect way to add personality to your space. If you like the idea of multiple coffee tables, try three upholstered poufs or ottomans that can double as extra seating.
If you have a very large room and a large coffee table, you can break up the scale of the table by flanking it with pairs of ottomans or benches, as in this example. When there’s a party, they can be moved out of the way for better circulation, but for everyday use these extra seats help connect the sofa at one end and the pair of chairs at the other end. Be sure to use a pair of ottomans — not just a single one.
