You’ve probably thought long and hard about the right sofa, rug and chairs to include in your living room design, but what about the coffee table? It is often the centerpiece and workhorse of the space –– it holds our drinks, beloved tech devices, trinkets and other household items. So why is this mainstay piece often so hard to find? Well, when it comes to coffee tables, the options are endless. We’ve mapped out a guide to help you find the perfect coffee table to match your unique interior design style. 

The Contemporary Coffee Table

Contemporary designs are typically defined by simplicity, clean lines and focus on the overall space and not individual items.  Though contemporary and modern may seem interchangeable, contemporary style refers to what is currently popular whereas modern refers to an era that has passed.  Shown above, the rich brown tempered glass top is complemented with architectural brushed antique brass iron legs for added appeal. It’s oversized and intriguing design is perfect for open, contemporary spaces.

The Modern Coffee Table

If you are looking for a modern coffee table, look for coffee tables with mixed materials such as a wooden base with a glass top, or even sculptural pieces that add unique lines and shapes to your space. Featured above, this table includes a circular form divided into three separate tiers and materials: white marble, gunmetal and black glass. 

The Farmhouse Coffee Table

When adding the finishing touch to your farmhouse-inspired living room, look for a solid wood design with dimension and character. Oftentimes, farmhouse furniture includes stained wood with a large bottom shelf for baskets or blankets. 

The Outdoor Coffee Table

Incorporate a wicker, teak or rattan-style coffee table for your outdoor oasis. Teak is a popular wood outdoors for aesthetic and durability, just like the piece shown above. An outdoor coffee table should exude a lightweight freshness, while inviting richness of texture and still remaining functional. Enjoying a cup of morning coffee on your patio has never been more enjoyable.
