The coffee table is often the centerpiece of your living room, so how do you go about selecting the perfect one? We at Pottery Barn are here to make your coffee table shopping easy with four non-traditional options. Traditionally, coffee tables have been rectangular and placed lengthwise in front of a sofa. Circular tables have also been popular anchor points for traditionally styled rooms as of late.
You can of course mix and match the approaches above to create a unique look! For example, you could use The Four Corners approach and combine it with The Contained Grouping by using a tray on one of the corners. Or you could combine Long & Linear with The Center of Attention, as shown below.
Assure a great fit for your room and your lifestyle by considering a coffee table’s size, features and aesthetics. Keep an upholstered ottoman 18 inches from a sofa or chair, so you can easily put up your feet, and make sure the height is consistent with the surrounding seats. If you get a tufted ottoman, consider the depth of the tufts — especially if you expect to eat on it. Crumbs will find their way into the tufting and are not always easy to get out.
A coffee table does a lot of work. It needs to hold books, magazines, drinks, food — even games on game night. You might want to put your feet up on it, or the kids might need a place for coloring. Plus it’s usually smack dab in the middle of the room, where you can’t miss it — so make sure it’s a good one.
