There’s a coffee table for every space. Size, style and furniture arrangement matter, but shape will determine whether a table works well with the seating surrounding it. With that in mind, do your research and planning, take measurements of each piece of furniture in your room and the overall space. It’s also important to know the distances between the sofa, chairs and other seating that form the conversation area where the coffee table will reside. Those measurements will determine the size and shape of the best coffee table for your space. If you’re after a cheap glass coffee table you could try looking at Furniture in Fashion where they offer a range of shapes and styles, as well as other materials like wood. Possible table shapes include the following:
Rectangular. Rectangular is the most popular coffee table shape. They’re ideal for regular size sofas facing two arm chairs. A good rule of them for selecting the length of a rectangular table is the coffee table should be at least two-thirds as long, but not equal to the length of the sofa.
Rectangular Bird’s Eye View. Here’s a great look of a conversation area with sectional and rectangular coffee table. You’ll note the table is wide enough so that it is easy to reach from the extension of the sectional. This room view also shows an ideal amount of space between the coffee table and seating as well as traffic flow around the room.
Square. A square coffee table can be the perfect choice for a tiny living room with a sectional with a much smaller footprint. By measuring carefully you’ll be able to choose the most suitable size table for your small space lifestyle.
Four Squares Make a Whole. On the other hand, square coffee tables may be chosen to enhance a much larger (in this case a 40-foot long) open living space. Four light and airy woven squares topped with glass seem to create a perfectly balanced look.
Round. A round coffee table can be stunning with a glamorous curved sofa. While the round shape will often feel mismatched in size and proportion with the straight lines of a sofa, if carefully selected they can work well with a small sofa or love seat and armchairs. Our favorite conversation area is a round coffee tables surrounded by four upholstered chair.
Oval. Not only is an oval shaped table visually appealing, it’s also often favored for those safer rounded “corners.” This small living is charming with its comfortable and inviting (and diverse) seating pulled in close to a lovely oval metal and glass coffee table.
Organic. From rescued tree trunks to carefully hand-forged iron tree branch bases, today’s organic shaped coffee tables run the gamut from rustic wood to glamorous metallics. With an irregular organic shape and slender “molten” metal legs, this out of the ordinary table has a nature meets glam look.
Cut Out Round. Many coffee tables don’t fit into a specific shape category. For instance, this metal beauty is round, but it isn’t–cool cutouts give it a stylish shape of its own. If you delight in thinking outside the box when you furnish your interior spaces, keep an open mind as you explore coffee table shape options and choose one that you love–one that perfectly suits your unique style.
Choices. Choices. For those who simply can’t decide on just one coffee table shape, here’s a clever solution–one room, two tables. Creating two conversation areas side by side in a single living space allows for the use of a lovely brass-banded oval coffee table and a chic glass-topped wood design. It’s a great look.
