For Books or Feet: Coffee Tables
The coffee table exists in almost any shape, size, material construction or color imaginable. Before you’re overwhelmed by the multitude of options, though, consider the table size and traffic flow you’d like in your living room. Setting a size constraint that allows for comfortable movement will narrow your search considerably. Think about how you’ll use the table as it may help rule out certain surfaces. And don’t overlook height – a general guideline is for the coffee table to be no taller than the cushions of your sofa.
