Round Coffee Tables
The coffee table you choose will help create the look and feel of your space. When choosing your table you will want to think about the shape, style, height, and material of the table.
Not all tables are created the same! The shape of the table you choose will depend on the sofa or sitting arrangement in your living space.
If you have a chaise sofa or a square shape sitting area a round coffee table is a great option. In either scenario, a round table will soften the edges and create flow in your room.
For most the sofa is the first piece they select in a room design but the next piece is usually the coffee table. Personally, I like to think of the space as a whole looking at ALL the pieces together before purchasing.
Since many do not know how to design that way they tend to look at each piece individually. That said let’s get into all the fabulous round coffee table options available.
This post is all about modern round coffee tables.
How to pick round coffee tables
When it comes to style there are many options. There is the classic shape, layered table, and even bunching table.
You may want a more formal coffee table in your living room depending on how you have it decorated. More fragile and delicate surfaces such as glass can be used in formal living rooms.
A family room needs a sturdier coffee table. You may also want to look for one that has storage options, like drawers. The surface should be able to take abuse because spilled snacks or feet on the table are more common in casual settings.
Glass tops are generally not suitable for family rooms, not just because of fragility, but finger marks and scratches too. For glass-tops without frames, there is the danger of sharp corners, especially when you have small children.
Take a look at your room and other furniture to determine what material would look best. Clear acrylic and glass can make a small room look more open. A hint of metal can accomplish the same goal. Glass, acrylic, metal, and stone also look good in modern living spaces.
Glass tables are less bulky than wood or metal and easier to wipe down. Plus, if you can’t find a coaster, it’s OK to put your drink on a glass top (most of the time).
Coffee tables are available in many different shapes. While the shape of the room can play a role in choosing a coffee table, you must pay attention to your seating configuration more than anything else.
Your coffee table should be approximately two-thirds the length of your sofa. So for a 96-inch sofa, for instance, you should look for a coffee table that’s 64 inches long.
Pro Tip: Your coffee table should be approximately two-thirds the length of your sofa.
The ideal distance from the edge of the sofa to the edge of the table is 18 inches. This distance is close enough to reach for your drink or put a magazine down but far enough to stretch out your legs.
People often leave too much or not enough room. If you have other seats in the room that you want to reach the coffee table, follow the same 18-inch rule.
Pro Tip: The ideal distance from the edge of the sofa to the edge of the table is 18 inches.
A rectangular or oval coffee table works well for smaller rooms.
Square or round coffee tables are good for large seating configurations. These include large sectionals or a large sofa with two accent chairs.
If you have kids, an oval or round table is a smart choice. Sharp corners and little ones just aren’t a good match. And if you need extra storage (like most families do), a table with one shelf or more underneath is a great idea.
A coffee table’s height is key. The surface should be about one or two inches lower than your sofa seat (or the same height).
Standard tables are 16 to 18 inches high. If you have a higher couch or entertain a lot, consider a taller table around 20 or 21 inches.
The higher height will make it easy for guests to put down their cocktail or grab an appetizer.
Pro Tip: The ideal coffee table height is one or two inches lower than your sofa seat.
Coffee tables are available at very low and extremely high price points.
If you want a unique look with quality materials be prepared to spend between $800 to $2000. Remember the saying “you get what you pay for” when it comes to quality.
If you like to change your space often purchase a coffee table at a lower price point. For those looking for a timeless piece, you should invest in a quality statement coffee table.
Depending on how unique your round coffee table is it can become the focal point of the room.
