6 TIPS FOR CHOOSING A COFFEE TABLE TO SUIT YOUR LIVING ROOM 

Choosing a coffee table for your living room may seem like a simple task, but there are a few key elements to consider before investing in a new piece for your home. We’ve pulled together our top tips for choosing a coffee table that will effortlessly enhance your living space. 

THE PERFECT HEIGHT

One of the most overlooked elements of a coffee table is height. Your coffee table should be no higher than the cushions on the seat of your couch. This will ensure your coffee table fits seamlessly within your living room and doesn’t overcrowd the space. 

 

CHOOSING YOUR MATERIAL

When it comes to selecting a material, we recommend sustainable solid oak for its durability and natural warmth. Carrara marble is another excellent option if you’re looking to add a touch of laid-back luxury to your living room. Make sure that the materials you choose have been sourced to support regeneration and biodiversity. While also providing you with a chain of custody so that you can see the sustainable journey your piece has gone on from the forest to your home. 

SELECTING A DESIGN 

When choosing the design of your coffee table, it’s important to consider the size of your living room and how your new piece will harmonise with your other furniture items. A coffee table that is too small will disrupt the proportions of the space, while a coffee table that is too large will close in your space. Choose a piece that allows you to effortlessly move through the room with ease. 

ALIGN YOUR LIFESTYLE 

Whenever you are purchasing a new piece for your home, it’s important to carefully consider how it will fit into your day-to-day life. For example, if you love entertaining then choosing a larger coffee table to place your grazing platter on might be just what you need. Choosing a coffee table that aligns with your lifestyle will ensure it is a part of your home for many years to come. 

PERSONAL STYLE 

Another element to consider is the overall look and feel of your living room. Ideally, your coffee table should complement the other pieces in the space and reflect your personal style. If you’re looking for something that will evolve with your personal style over time, we always recommend choosing a timeless design that will be a statement piece within your home for years to come.
