Coffee tables should be the same height as the surrounding seating, with 18 inches being a good average (although it will depend on your furniture). If you select a coffee table with a lip, make sure the lip isn’t higher than the adjacent seating, or you’ll end up hitting your drink against the lip when you try to set it down. The idea is to put your drink down, not up.
If you want to start breaking the rules with the basics, why not try an oversized square table instead, or an elegantly elongated oval? These days, coffee tables come in all shapes and sizes from triangular to hexagonal to the more abstract. When you’re choosing the shape of your coffee table, take cues from the layout of your room and the shape of your sofa and chairs. If your furniture layout is boxy, a square table makes sense. If your space is longer and your furniture layout follows suit, a longer oval or uniquely shaped table might be a better fit.
