Upholstery aside, you can also find coffee tables made from glass, metal and stone, just to mention a few. A coffee table covered in mirrors can help a small living room look bigger, and a glass coffee table looks stunning on top of a brilliantly patterned rug. Because some modern man-made materials are easily molded into any shape, designers are creating more coffee tables with non-traditional forms. A stone coffee table (or one made to look like stone) adds a natural element to the space.
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 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.
Which approach you choose will depend on: Your decorating style and The other elements in the room also The amount of functionality you need with The items you choose to display. Once you’ve gathered together the key decor items you want to display on your coffee table, decide which approach is best for you and then see if you need any other “filler” items, like books, candles, or small accessories. And remember, an easy way to change up the look of a room and give it a fresh feel is to simply change out your coffee table decor!
