Coffee tables aren’t limited to holding coffee cups and oversize books. A popular piece of furniture, the coffee table may be in the living room, den or recreation room, or on the patio: anywhere people using a sofa and chairs may gather and require space to place a beverage or plate. They may hold game boards for spirited competitions or the pieces for a jigsaw puzzle. A coffee table can be a focal point or a demure accessory. This coffee table fact sheet should help you learn more about this versatile piece of furniture.

A living room without a coffee table is a lot like a supermodel without lipstick, undone. Just as lipstick is one detail that can complete a look, so too can the perfect coffee table. Coffee tables serve several purposes; from completing a look, to storage and display they are much needed in a space. The question is which style will work for your room. Should you go with a wood one with chunky legs, metallic with a glass top; should it be round, square or rectangular? The options are endless and at times can be overwhelming. My ten tips will help break down the maze of decisions and steer you in the direction of the perfect coffee table.

Coffee tables come in even more shapes and sizes than dining room tables: you can find hexagonal, rectangular, oval, circular, and square coffee tables at Bassett Furniture. When it comes to height, your coffee table should be one or two inches shorter than the seat cushions on your sofa. This typically ranges from 15″ to 20″ high. The depth and width of your coffee table depend on several factors, including the shape of the table and the available space.

In general, the width of your coffee table should be about two-thirds the length of your sofa. The depth of your coffee table will depend on the size of your room. As these coffee table pictures illustrate, if it looks and feels right, it probably is.

As with shape, you will need to determine the size you need. The height of a coffee table is important. It should be no lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of your couch. The standard height for a table is 16-18 inches and pairs well with a typical sized couch. A higher sofa requires a taller table, one that is 20-21 inches in height. The taller table will also be more convenient if you entertain a lot, as it will be easier for guests to set down a glass or a plate.

Let me stress the importance of scale. Every piece in your room should be the appropriate scale. For example, a heavy clunky overstuffed comfortable couch paired with a dainty coffee table found in your grandmother’s attic is not the right scale. Pair an overstuffed couch with a large table instead. The two pieces, being of equal weight and size, will be more in scale with each other. It is best to pair the dainty coffee table with a smaller more delicate loveseat or settee. Scale is simply about the size and visual weight of objects in a room being comparable.

Sometimes thinking outside the box allows you to find the perfect coffee table that perhaps is not a table at all. Old steamer trunks, cedar chests and ottomans are fabulous alternatives to the typical coffee table. Each option offers its own eclectic appeal. Ottomans for instance can be made of leather or beautiful fabrics that will add some additional visual interest and texture to the room. They can also serve as a place to put your feet up without concern for the tabletop. They will work well in any high traffic family room that gets a lot of use. Often trunks were the only way immigrants brought their lives from the old world to the new. If you are lucky, you may have inherited an old streamer trunk to use nostalgically in your family room creating an interesting conversation piece.

A coffee table’s height is key. The surface should be about one or two inches lower than your sofa seat. Standard tables are 16 to 18 inches high, but if you have a higher couch or entertain a lot, consider a taller table—20 or 21 inches—so it’s easy for guests to set down their dessert plate or cut a piece of cheese.

The coffee table is the last piece of the living room puzzle, chosen after all the seating. You have to pick just the right one to fill the gap. Even designers have a tough time, because the options seem endless. Brass base with a glass top? Round wood with tapered legs? Drawers or no drawers? For my own living room, I pushed two glass coffee tables with stainless steel bases together because I couldn’t find just one table in the right size!
