We started by saying that a coffee table is an opportunity. It’s an excellent chance to optimise your choice with added storage. You can opt for a piece with a shelf underneath the base for magazines or books. Drawers or baskets will give you a place to store serviettes or coasters. You can also extend its functionality with the space underneath the base. Place old suitcases or a trunk under your coffee table. This will add to the charm of the decor. And you’ll get the benefit of the extra room for bits and bobs.
Modern or contemporary furniture often breaks these traditional rules. You’ll find pieces in a variety of designs in non-standard sizes and shapes. These tables can act as focal points to add to their value. They can complement the mood you want to create with a single piece.
Sometimes a coffee table that isn’t the standard height or width is exactly what a room needs. In this instance a very low coffee table creates a crisp horizontal plane in the foreground, offsetting the long horizontal line of the credenza in the background. A higher table would have blocked the view of the credenza and competed with it; the varying heights add interest.
Rectangular coffee tables in particular can be styled with beautiful symmetry using a repetition of objects that runs lengthwise. Look for a commonality among the objects used, such as shape or color, so that no one object competes with another.
