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.
Working with a black coffee table can be exciting, and when done right it can both blend into the backdrop and stand out visually at the same time. It is an addition that is never out of style, and today we have 23 gorgeous inspirations to go along with a few helpful tips that will hopefully make the process of embracing the dark coffee table all the more easy.
