It’s been awhile since we’ve talked coffee tables! This handy furnishing holds everything from books to plates of food. Since it typically rests at the center of your living room, the coffee table is a true focal point. Today we take a look at coffee tables that are chic, unique and practical. In fact, all of the tables below boast a special feature, such as an unusual shape, a striking material or a function that makes it oh-so-useful. Check out the collection of images that follows, and use the helpful links to find purchasing information if you’re in the shopping mood…
Can concrete be chic? You bet! Say hello to the Mason Coffee Table from Crate & Barrel, featuring a clean form and an interesting surface created by mixing an aggregate blend with the concrete. A polished finish adds to the sleek look, while fine fissures make each table truly unique.
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.
