Ideas for choosing the best coffee tables for your unique style
Selecting the right living room table sets for your home will largely depend on your space, couch size and personal styling preferences. At Bellacor, our unique collection of living room tables is filled with a variety of functional and decorative features to complement your interior design. From square coffee tables that are made for cozy rooms to a copper cocktail table that is on-trend, we have the pieces you need to turn your house into a home. Enhance a cottage with weathered wood finishes, or add industrial flair with a wood cocktail table crafted with reclaimed materials and iron. Nesting tables and coffee tables with storage maximize your space, while ottoman tables lend a soft finish to your favorite gathering spots.
What cocktail tables match different furniture
Feel free to get creative with your living room furniture. Mix and match various woods and metals for an eye-catching display, or create a cohesive presentation with similar tones and themes. Pair an antique bronze coffee table with wooden living room end tables for a mix of natural and industrial elements, or keep things clean and modern with sheer glass tables that are versatile enough to go with any color palettes of your choosing. A leather sofa looks especially luxe next to cocktail tables with mirrored finishes, and it can look equally masculine with a trunk coffee table. Gold leaf, marble and quatrefoil designs add a touch of glamour to velvet couches, while hand-painted pieces lend extra charm to bohemian aesthetics.
Popular configurations for coffee tables & side tables
Configuring your coffee tables and side tables lets you enhance your living room with storage solutions and a cozy atmosphere that’s true to you. Combine round and square tables for a geometric play on traditional lines, or stick to the tried and true by placing a standard rectangular design front and center. Use a tiered accent table to maximize your space, or try a lift-top coffee table for extra storage and convenient Netflix snacking. Poufs can add additional seating next to your tables, as well. Similarly, a narrow side table is a smart choice for small spaces and prevents living rooms from getting too cramped. Complete the look by topping your tables with books and flowers for a homey look and feel.
A: It’s important to keep your coffee table in proportion to your available space as well as your sofa and chairs. As a general rule, coffee tables should be roughly the same height as your couch cushions. Also, you’ll want to make sure that your coffee table is shorter than the length of your sofa. Finally, you’ll want to leave at least a foot of space between the couch and the coffee table for maximum comfort.
Q: What shape coffee table goes with a sectional sofa?
A: Choosing the right coffee table for your sectional sofa comes down to proportion and aesthetics. Round coffee tables are a smart choice for U-shaped sectionals, while square and rectangular designs are usually a better bet for L-shaped arrangements. Always ensure that the coffee table doesn’t extend beyond either arm of the sectional in order to keep the room properly balanced.
A: Generally speaking, coffee tables should be positioned at the center of a seating arrangement to accommodate guests and unify the overall space. You’ll want to allow enough leg room between the table and your seating, but don’t feel confined by design rules. Get creative by staggering two tables to better suit your seating arrangement, or use ottomans to soften a room’s look and feel.
Q: How far should cocktail tables be from the sofa?
A: Always allow at least 12 inches of space between a cocktail table and a sofa. If possible, allow for 18 inches in order to better accommodate you and your house guests with enough leg room. Between 14 and 18 inches in considered an ideal range that allows each guest to utilize the table with ease.
A: The perfect height for your cocktail table will depend on the height of its surrounding sofas and accent chairs. These designs are typically the same height as your seat cushions and should be no more than 1 to 2 inches lower than the seat of your couch. For reference, standard cocktail tables are approximately 16 to 18 inches tall.
