If midcentury modern coffee tables are not your thing, then try out equally trendy and contemporary coffee tables with Nordic charm. The DIY Danish modern coffee table is a showstopper that looks as good as any store-bought piece while the minimal DIY tile coffee table is even sleeker and can also offer a dash of storage space for your magazines.
For another coffee table selection that pulls double duty as a storage bin, check out the Aurea White Coffee Table from CB2. Designed by Mermelada Estudio, this clean-lined piece features hi-gloss white sheet metal and engineered wood. Cutout slots provide a place for your hand to lift the panels (there are three). Inside you will find a trio of storage compartments!
If you are a child of the 90s, the idea of mirrored coffee tables would most likely feel both odd and garish. In an era where beige was the color of choice and simple, straight lines along with rigid geometric shapes defined a modern style that quickly became generic, there was really no room for something so sparkly and brilliant. But as with everything else, the circle of fashion and design has once again revived styles such as vintage, retro, Art Deco and even Hollywood Regency. And with this revival, mirrored décor once again found space in homes across the globe.
