Cap Ivory Cement Coffee Table – Coffee table. Actions therefore, are often afterthoughts. The sofa gives the whole living room its glory, and you are sure that it makes us feel good. But the coffee table is the workhorse of the room. It’s got our drinks, remote controls, favorite tech, cool stuff, and, for better or worse, our takeaways at the end of the day. Sometimes it doubles as a chair (which we don’t endorse, for legal reasons, but we won’t deny that we’ve done it sometimes), a table, or an art table. With its bold, distinctive design, you’d think it would be one of the first pieces of furniture you thought of when moving to a new place and/or redecorating… except it’s not.
How many hours do we spend choosing the perfect sofa, the perfect rug, the perfect chair for our living room… only to throw in a coffee table that once belonged to Aunt Susan? (bless his heart). Well, not all of us come down to who-cares-for-the-coffee-table. Many of them are sure to choose a table, we know, but regardless of the side of things you may find yourself in, you may need guidance or inspiration in the coffee shop. What sizes and shapes go with sofa sizes and sizes? It may feel like a shot in the dark, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. We put together a shopping guide for the best coffee tables we could find—round, square, rectangle, oval! -A few rules to keep in mind (with a diagram!) when choosing a coffee.

First: the rules. While you can, of course, go with any style and size you like, in order to have a good relationship between your coffee table and the sofa, here are some general things to keep in mind: Your coffee table should be at least half the length of your sofa (but not more than about ⅔ length) and it should to sit around the height of the seat, give or take 4 inches (that is, if your sofa is 90 inches long and 20 inches long, you should look for something, regardless of the shape, that is 45 to 54 inches wide and 16 to 24 inches wide). However, if you have a messy room, and your table goes into the L-shape the sofa creates, that 1/2 to 2/3 rule applies to the horizontal length of the chair, rather than the full length of the sofa. Here’s a quick diagram to show you what we mean, as well as to break down the beautiful layout using the sofa:

Once you know the right size and shape, after that, it’s more about choosing the right design for your home. The rectangular and oval coffee table can be changed almost, depending on the type of water you want – the same goes with the round. Let’s break it down a bit (with the bonus of picking out our favorites):
Consider a rectangle (or oval, but more on this next image) if you have a regular sofa (or a long-legged sofa with a chaise longue) so that everyone has an easy way to get a coffee, a cocktail or a night of choice. This is also a good choice if you have limited time and little to walk-around. If you’re a home with more cables or tech than you can count, consider getting a table with a functional but still good machine like #1, #21, #23 and #30. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the table at #2 has a box of the shade above (it’s great to put your favorite curiosities and trinkets but still have a large surface for you… just the stuff of real life. Oh, and if you always eat in front of your TV (either by choice or because you don’t have the usual opening), a coffee table top- they are more useful because you don’t have to hunt over your plate (#10 and #29).

If you have a nice large room or a traditional conversation set with a sofa and two chairs (kind of like Ginny’s room upstairs), a square table is a good choice. It fits perfectly with the L-shaped nook of your room or a large space in the middle of your chat room. The best piece on the square table? You get a lot of style space for your money. Who doesn’t love a cute coffee vignette? We really like to mix square and base rounds on table #1 to play on the picture. It’s similar to the table shade we mentioned in the previous section, #2 from IKEA has a design with four sections, and the glass top allows you to see all the good things you choose to store (it’s definitely not the best way if you know ‘I just finished matching those drawers with the catalog, though).

For anyone living in a small space where every piece of furniture counts, consider cutting corners (naturally) and going with the wheel. It is also good to choose a combination of a sofa or a chaise because it is a good “nook” shape, that is, it fits a small space like in the family room of Jaime Derringer from Design Milk above. Another hot tip if the space is at a high level or if your room is already busy is to look at the top of the glass like #9 and #24. This helps things look more open-if you can’t see it, is it really there? Speaking of small spaces, storage is NOT common in small rooms, which is why we really like #10, #22 and #25 for deep, hidden-away storage (great for winning favorite things, toys, etc.). A full coffee table also looks very interesting (blondes of the world on the table??), so why not invest in a selection of the best ones like #4, #6, #16, #20 and #27?

Oval is a good call if you have small people running and you want to try to avoid anything in person (circulation is also good for this). If your living room is a high-traffic area (like, do you have to walk through it to get to other areas like the kitchen or dining room?), the shape of the crime scene helps with visual appeal, as well. It ends up looking like a rectangle but really lightens the sofa. The marble and wood pattern (#1) is a favorite here (see Emily’s room here). The light legs keep the light and float (balances the heavy wood below). Yes, the Platner table (#5) is a modern design, and while the copper table above the Brady room is no longer available, we found a similar one in copper tones (#7) if you like the silhouette but it’s easy to switch to metal.
