Whenever I see a flat surface in my home, I feel like it’s begging to be decorated! And the coffee table is one of my favorite places to play and experiment with various decor items and colors. When seated in a living space, the coffee table becomes a focal point and there’s noting like a beautiful vignette to help set the tone of the room.
To see what size of coffee table will work best for your room, first mark its footprint with painter’s tape. That will allow you to see the scale of the piece in the room and how that affects the surrounding furniture. If you have a very large room and a large coffee table, you can break up the scale of the table by flanking it with pairs of ottomans or benches, as in this example.
A rectangular table is the classic form. It works because most sofas are the same shape. And it maximises the space. Everyone sitting on the sofa can reach it easily. It’s a great option if you have a smaller living room.
The standard height of the piece runs between 40cm and 45cm. It should be at the same height as the cushions of your sofa. You can opt for a taller table if it has extra padding. The goal is that you should place your food or drinks down on the table rather than up and over. Take into account any extra height of a lip on the edge of the table too.
