Coffee tables are often the centerpiece of the living room. We arrange seating around the coffee table. We use it to hold essentials such as books and drink coasters.

Round coffee tables naturally take up less space and are ideal for smaller homes. Just because your coffee table is small doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Choose from decorative wood, metal or glass coffee tables. Glass will make your table almost disappear and may create the illusion of a larger space. Also use your coffee table as a focal point and choose an ornate decorated or artisan variety that is detailed with gorgeous inlay, mosaic tiles or other decorative materials.
