What are the different types of coffee tables for your home?
The living room is where we gather to relax and connect, and the coffee table takes center stage in setting the mood. Coffee tables come in an amazing array of styles and sizes. Thankfully, we've made it easy to discover the perfect piece that fits your unique space. Explore modern wood coffee tables and contemporary coffee table sets, modern, mid-century-inspired, farmhouse and minimalist styles. We love the look of mixed-material pieces or tables with glass shelving. And, of course, our genuine marble tables to add a pop of glamour to the room. A fun alternative to a single large coffee table is an arrangement of several smaller accent tables or laptop tables placed near your sofa and chairs.
What should you put on a coffee table?
The living room coffee table functions as a catchall in front of your sofa. Drinks, snacks and coffee table books all have a place on the coffee table, as do favorite vases, decorative bowls and other objets d'art. Of course, the coffee table is a natural place for a plant or two (or three!) – and you know we have tips on decorating with plants. You can also find coffee tables that do double duty, acting as a tabletop while also providing extra storage with a lift-off lid or shelving. Remember, what goes under a coffee table is more important that what goes on it: Discover how a well-chosen rug sets the mood in a room.
Can your coffee table be higher than your couch?
Yes, your coffee table can be higher than your couch. In fact, this is a preferred style for people who enjoy noshing on dinner or snacks during movie nights or who plan to use their coffee table as supplemental seating when having a crowd over. The designer's rule of thumb is that the coffee table should be no more than four inches taller or shorter than the seats of your sofa or chairs. But at World Market, we know sometimes the most beautiful, unique rooms are achieved by stretching the old rules a bit.
How do I pick a coffee table that matches my home?
Choosing the perfect coffee table for your home is as important as picking a sofa or dining room set. Think about the way you want your home to function and the aesthetic you are trying to achieve. Do you have books you want to display? Are you hoping to organize remotes? Do you plan on eating at the table? We have coffee tables to suit all needs. At World Market, you'll discover beautiful and affordable living room furniture in a wide range of styles to help you can define your unique style and bring it home.
