A coffee table is an essential piece of furniture for every home. It’s a useful spot to display some books or place your drink as you relax at the end of the day.
With minimalism so popular, there are tons of gorgeous minimalist coffee tables around. The right minimalist table will create a spacious, relaxed atmosphere. A coffee table is a focal point that people gather around in any room. So, you want a beautiful table that is also practical.
The modern coffee table, whether we fully recognize it or not, is the focal point of the living room. It’s the eye of the homey storm, the room’s flat-topped nucleus that also holds your tea — the keystone keeping your space from crumbling in on itself, aesthetically. Picking the right coffee table for your space is important: you don’t want it to overpower the rest of your pieces in the room, but you want it to stand out on its own.
Square, rectangular, circular, amoebus — you’ve got options when it comes to the shape of your coffee table. When it comes to choosing the right shape for your space, it’s subjective. Maybe you’re a soft edges, circular table kind of person. Or perhaps you’re all about those right angles. Consider the totality of room your prospective table is going to take up in your space. A foot, foot-and-a-half of distance between your couch and table is comfortable. Give yourself two-to-three feet of space between your table and TV stand or fireplace. That’s also a healthy amount of space to navigate around the table generally.
