Your coffee table should be either a touch lower than your sofa or the same height. You do not want your coffee table higher than seating cushion height.
If you`re looking for a coffee table that doesn`t distract from the other furniture in your room interior designer Dee Murphy recommends this curved acrylic number from CB2 which she likes to use in a space where I feel the eye needs a ‘rest` — in a room that has a lot of color or pattern for example or even in a small space. The table won`t crowd or compete with the rest of the furniture or décor. It also works well with all design styles she says. We can picture this going quite nicely with an Eames lounger or an overstuffed wingback chair upholstered in a jaunty print.
Not only does this ensure that you can be conveniently positioned at the opposite end of the table to whichever sloshed relative has had one too many bucks fizz but place cards are also a really easy (and inexpensive) touch that shows you have made a bit of extra effort. You could of course have your place cards made (Not on the High Street have some lovely options) or you could copy this idea and get fancy with a calligraphy pen (or just a biro) and some nice heavy paper.
