Another living room color scheme that is an absolute classic and the black and white look will continue to hold sway in the future as well, simply because of its ease and effectiveness. A black coffee table is perfect for this setting, and you can easily switch between trendy, seasonal colors and change accent décor without breaking a sweat thanks to the neutral backdrop.
Ensure the height of the table is comfortable for guests to place a drink or book on with just a slight arm reach. If your guests have to get up to use the table, you need to get another table or think about re-positioning your seated furniture.
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.
