We end our round coffee table collection with this Marble Oval Coffee Table from West Elm. In fact, oval coffee tables are becoming more rare in the current design realm, as perfect circles and long rectangles seem to be the norm. Not only is the antiqued metal base of this piece sturdy yet elegant, the marble slab top gleams without being garish.
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.
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.
