Ready to move into cube territory? Also from Crate & Barrel, these Patina Brass Cubes have a soft brushed look and plenty of modular flair. View two below, and imagine how fabulous a quartet of these metal wonders would look in a large living room.
We begin with round coffee tables. The fact that they don’t have corners makes them extremely useful for small spaces, as you can easily navigate the room without bumping into them. Just because they fit well into compact areas doesn’t mean they can’t make a grand statement! The Polly Cocktail Table from Jonathan Adler is a real showstopper. It swivels (yes, each separate level can spin out from the center). In addition, it features three tones of blue lacquer.
The design trick with round tables is determining how much walking space there is around the table. Guests should feel comfortable in walking past seated guests, without feeling like a movie theater and saying “excuse me” for seated guests to have to stand! Assume at least 1-2 feet around your coffee table, more or less depending on the seating arrangement.
