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.
A tone-on-tone strategy is unexpected. By matching the decor to the color of the coffee table, items stand out simply because the concept is interesting. Plus, the look is anything but cluttered, as both decor and table make a unified statement.
In contrast to popular perception, the mirrored coffee table fits in surprisingly well with a wide range of styles that vary from sophisticated minimalism to shabby chic and even bohemian. It is the finish of the coffee table (you can look at mirrored coffee tables with different frames), its overall silhouette and geometric shape that ultimately define which style it fits best. A smart coffee table with a distressed wooden frame can blend in with rustic, shabby chic, farmhouse and even industrial styles despite its mirrored surface. On the other hand, futuristic designs with a refined aura are perfect for high-end bachelor pads oozing with minimalism.
