Let’s face it, coffee tables are a must in any living room and, in my opinion, act as the anchor in the space. These days there are so many materials, shapes and sizes to choose from that it makes it hard to know where to start. The ideal coffee table is about two-thirds the width of your sofa. If you have a sectional with a chaise, then the table should be two-thirds the size of the sofa portion only. This creates a balanced look in the room. As for height, try to keep it no lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of your sofa. I also don’t like to stretch to put my drink down so keep the table no more than 12-18 inches away from your seat. Keep it comfortable!
I’m a big fan of rectangles between two couches facing each other, rounds with chaise sectionals and squares with L-shapes! We’ve also done two coffee tables in a room and it looks fab. You know I’m not necessary a rule follower so if you LOVE a table, then get it and trust me-you’ll make it work. Here are a few save and splurge options for you to check out! I’ll get a styling post put together for you next so you know what to put on that fab table of yours. Happy shopping!
