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.
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!
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.
