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.
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.
You can also try your hand at a DIY coffee table made from wood pallets, crates or reclaimed lumber. Finally, if you want to find the most unconventional coffee table possible, look at things that aren’t coffee tables at all. There are plenty of other functional pieces of furniture that can be used in place of a coffee table.
Another consideration is how it will sit on your floor or rug, and if it will damage those surfaces. Splintered table legs or rusty metal bases can scratch or stain the flooring. Secondhand stores sometimes leave those areas unrefinished, so be sure to check.
