Picking a coffee table for the living room is a choice that is largely defined by the style of the space, the available room, the décor that your choose for the rest of the living area, and of course, functionality. Few coffee tables cut across the usual style and ergonomic barriers and fit in effortlessly with almost any living room that you can imagine. Natural and beautiful, the live-edge coffee table is one such delight that seems as much at home in polished, contemporary homes as it does in rustic holiday cabins and beautiful beach-style retreats.
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.
