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.
Sweet & Simple. This is just as the name implies because sometimes, less is more. Simplicity of design allows us to focus on other elements in the room and also allows for a bit of breathing space. Plus, depending on how you use your coffee table, this might be the most practical approach! In my home, my son likes to do his homework at the coffee table so I have to keep things simple in order to give him ample room for his papers, books and mounds of eraser dust.
The Center of Attention. This approach can be independent of the others or can build off of any of the five previous with the addition of one element that is larger and/or more colorful than the other items. This item then becomes center of attention! You can easily use any of the other five approaches for every day use and then add that something extra for holidays, special occasions, or even just because!
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.
