Choosing the right coffee table for your space is largely about proportions—dimensions clearance and balance with other elements in the room. Generally your coffee table should be about two-thirds the length of your sofa.
Hackett Interiors also recommends a circular drum table especially for rooms with sectionals. Those rooms are usually a little less formal which is why we gravitate to the drum the designers say adding that this particular one from Crate and Barrel is substantial and effortless. The powder-coated hammered-iron surface feels cool and earthy.
While choosing a coffee table may feel like both an overwhelming and an unsexy task there are things to consider — beyond your overall aesthetic — to make the process a little less daunting. Nina Gotlieb director of hospitality and contract design at West Elm points out that it`s helpful to consider the proportions and relative mass of each piece in your living room. Sometimes if you have a super-leggy couch you don`t want a super-leggy coffee table. Or if you have a sofa that`s upholstered all the way to the ground you don`t want a super-massive coffee table because then everything feels too heavy she says.
Murphy also recommends this tiered coffee table by Thomas Bina that incorporates a lacquered top delicate steel legs and an oak lower shelf for those looking to update the mid-century look. Murphy likes that the tabletop has rounded edges (which she says are babyproof) while the extra shelf is great for storing books or small baskets of knickknacks.
