Although called a coffee table, this is an item of furniture that serves a huge range of functions in any living space. It provides surface area for keeping drinks but also for books and magazines, remote controls, phones and more. Round coffee tables are classically made from either wood, metal or glass. Our selection of large and small coffee tables come in a range of styles and design choices, with different colour wood finishes to suit any living space. Plus, check out our range of sectional sofas to match our coffee tables for a more complete overhaul of your living room.
Style choices for round coffee tables
Choose between chic modern or stylish retro designs, with mid-century modern and Scandinavian-inspired coffee tables in our range. Your choice of coffee table depends on both the style and size of your living space. Bigger rooms will benefit from a large coffee table, which will fill the space and provide a large surface and storage area. Smaller spaces need a more suitably sized design so as not to dominate your living space. Choose a coffee table with inbuilt storage to help you deal with clutter and keep your surfaces clear.
Storage and accessories
As well as being useful for drinks and snacks, a coffee table is also a great storage option, available with built-in drawers and shelves for books, magazines and handheld devices. Keep your remote controls stored away out of sight when not in use or choose a coffee table on wheels so you can move it to where it’s needed most with minimum fuss. Pair your coffee table with matching or complementary side tables for even more storage and surface space around your living room.
When to use a round coffee table?
You can use a round coffee table to add some softer lines and more organic edges to your living room. Round tables can also help to add more space in cramped living rooms, creating more open areas where corners would be.
How big should a round coffee table be?
There is no set size for a coffee table. They should be as big or small as the space dictates. You need it to be big enough to have practical value but not so big that it takes up too much space or dominates your living room.
How to decorate a round coffee table?
It depends on the size of your coffee table and the overall style of your living space. If you have taken a minimalist approach, you might want to keep your table surfaces clean. But you can also decorate your coffee table with a selection of reference books, candles and other ornamental pieces.
