Hello everyone and welcome to the new Forge Design blog. Looking for a new coffee table for your living room?
Great, you’ve come to the right place!
Coffee tables are not just a decorative object, they’re also the centerpiece of any room. And choosing the right one can totally transform your space.
How to choose the perfect coffee table for your living room?
You may be wondering what to consider. Here are a few tips to follow:
- Choose a solid, elegant surface.
- Make sure the shape and size match your space.
- Choose a style that will stand up to fleeting trends.
At the moment, we’re totally under the spell of sleek solid wood coffee tables. You know, with white furniture, the warmth of wood creates a striking contrast.
What will your coffee table be used for?
Before buying a table, ask yourself how you intend to use it. Is it for resting your feet after a long day? Dinner in front of the TV? Having friends over? Playing games? Working?
And don’t forget to think about functionality: storage, a place for your coffee or other beverage, remote controls, decorative objects, and even your smartphones.
How far is the coffee table from the sofa?
Ideally, leave around 45 cm between your coffee table and the edge of the sofa. It’s the perfect distance to move around and also to reach the table without standing up.
How big is your coffee table?
If we want to respect conventions, a coffee table should measure two-thirds the length of the sofa.
For example, for a 180 cm sofa, aim for a table measuring around 120 cm. And if your living room is a little cramped, an oval coffee table might be a great idea!
Choosing a coffee table for a corner sofa
For large living rooms, a corner sofa deserves a square or round coffee table. Just be sure to match sizes. For example, for a small corner sofa, a medium-sized coffee table would be perfect.
Current coffee table trends
Before you buy, think about your style. Do you like rustic wood? Do you prefer something modern or vintage? Natural materials are currently very much in vogue: wood, marble, linen…
