Those seeking even more contrast can choose a coffee table that blends unusual form with warmth of wood or sparkle of metal to create a cool focal point. In most modern living rooms the large coffee table is being replaced by a collection of smaller coffee tables or even a trio of stylish side tables, which give a lot more design flexibility. This summer, try out this new look for a fresher and more vibrant living room.
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.
