The Coolest
Coffee Tables
That Will Pull a
Room Together

Next to your sofa, your coffee table is probably the most important piece of furniture in your home. It's one of the few items that almost all your guests will interact with. It sits center stage in your living room and serves as a spot for your favorite design books, maybe a candle, not to mention your morning coffee and evening cocktails.

But choosing the right one can be a daunting task. You have to decide on the type of table that suits your interior design style. You should consider the rest of the furniture in the room—for instance, if you have a low-profile sofa, you'll want a similarly low-slung coffee table. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't experiment with unconventional shapes and materials. Of course, sometimes there's a need for storage to be snuck in there as well. The good news is that there's never been more variety available—in shapes, sizes, materials and even price. To help you find the coffee table that works within your living room (and your budget), we scoured the web for options that are stylish, sturdy and ready to be shipped right to your door. So whether you want a table to be a conversation piece or simply serve as a place to kick your feet up, we've got the best ones to upgrade your home. The real question is which table speaks to your sensibilities?

Before You Buy

You’ll want to measure up your space to make sure the table will fit and that you have plenty of room to move around it. You can even tape out the dimensions on the floor in painter’s tape to ensure the scale feels right. Don’t forget to consider the height and think about what you are going to use the coffee table for, whether that’s displaying items, resting your feet or eating dinner.
