Height Of A Coffee Table

I cannot think of a coffee table without thinking of Cosmo Kramer’s coffee table book about coffee tables that turns into a little coffee table. So in honor of that, I’ve been picking out some of my favorite coffee tables here on Houzz. There are SO many great ones here that it was really hard to choose. If you have a favorite, please share it in the comments section to add to the ideabook! When picking a coffee table, think about some of these criteria: 1) What will you use it for? Remote control holder? Ottoman? Extra storage space? Extra seating? Do you need it to multi-task or do you just need a piece of furniture in front of your sofa? 2) What is your room like? Is it cramped? Spacious? 3) What do you need the table to do for you aesthetically? Will it need to be the star of the room or do you need it to fade into the carpet? Will it bring in the only color to a neutral palette? Will it be the one eclectic element? 4) Will you need to cart it out of the room or move it around for entertaining? Consider portability – weight and even casters for the bottom. 5) Measure the height of your sofa or chairs that will be adjacent to the table. You don’t want the table to tower over the seat height of the furniture. 6) If you do need storage, consider a table with a shelf underneath for stashing books, remotes, wii, etc. You may also want to consider a pair of storage cubes. 7) If you have kids who are guaranteed to plop down sweaty drinks without coasters, you may want to stay away from wooden tables where rings will be left. Either that, or start intensive coaster training now. 8) Speaking of drinks, I have a slatted Danish modern coffee table myself. It is way too tipsy for wine glasses (pun intended). I either have to plop a thick Vogue down to set my drinks on or risk spillage. This is why I have a $99 rug from IKEA underneath it! 9) What style are you going for overall? Sleek and modern? Danish modern? Shabby Chic? Traditional? If you are mixing old and new, think about the balance of the two and which one your coffee table should be. 10) Consider the material. Does your room need more texture? A natural element like rough hewn wood or something super-sleek?

sarah & bendrix This luxurious cowhide piece is the star of this room, but no one should ever be allowed to put their feet on it unless they are wearing impeccably clean socks! Feldman Architecture, Inc. OK, this is the dangerous slatted table of which I spoke – it looks so great it’s worth the lack of stable places for drinks. LDa Architecture & Interiors A clear table leaves a room much more open – it’s like it’s hardly there. This is a great solution for smaller spaces. There are a few more examples of clear tables below. Vanessa De Vargas This lucite encased vintage trunk is a stunner. Vanessa De Vargas Vanessa used clear tables to help her small living room appear larger than it is. Vanessa De Vargas Isn’t the metal bamboo detailing beautiful? Vanessa De Vargas An upholstered piece is made functional by adding a tray. Elizabeth Dinkel Think outside the usual coffee table box: These two Moroccan tables work well as a pair. The same trick can be accomplished using ceramic Chinese garden stools. Elizabeth Dinkel Another clear table adds a contemporary shape to a traditional living room. Mark English Architects, AIA This glossy block adds a great bit of geometry to this modern room. Mark English Architects, AIA I had to add another shot – that finish is so beautiful. Mark English Architects, AIA I love this quirky table – it’s like a plant stand and adds sculptural interest to the room. It keeps the residents from being Unhappy Hipsters (have you seen that blog? It’s HILARIOUS!). Timothy De Clue Collection & Design This pair of stools serves many functions – coffee table, extra seating, and secret storage! This George Nakashima table is absolutely the star of the room. Below are a few more rough hewn wood tables that add textural appeal. Dufner Heighes Inc Sagan / Piechota Architecture Another clear beauty. The round shape is easier to navigate around in a smaller area, i.e. no mystery bruises on your shins from knocking into coffee table corners on a daily basis! The clawfoot legs on this table add wonderful shape! The Lettered Cottage I love this industrial cart so much. I believe it came from one of my favorite stores here in Atlanta, Victory Vintage. CWB Architects This upholstered table fits right in with the polished yet comfortable traditional vibe of this room. The room is lovely but it’s also the place where one can eat popcorn and watch movies, or guzzle beer and watch the Superbowl. CWB Architects This coffee table is like an anchor in the room. Everything else is styled around it. The mix of metal and wood makes it very versatile. CWB Architects I am SUCH a sucker for a driftwood table. This table brings in a natural element. CWB Architects I love the play of circles and squares in this room. Bockman + Forbes Design This table provides the perfect surface for a bright tablescape. BROWN DAVIS INTERIORS, INC. This room is large enough to contain two coffee tables and sitting areas. I like that they have different styles – it keeps things from being too matchy-matchy. the rug, drapes, and wall color do all the unification work. BergDesign Architects This wood and glass tray shaped table is just super cool. I don’t have anything more profound than that to say about it! This petite and graceful table fits in well with the elegant design. Dillard Pierce Design Associates

BHG.com Rooms Living Room Room Arranging Rightsizing Coffee Tables Scale really does matter when you’re selecting a coffee table for the living room. The formula for success: The coffee table should be one-half to two-thirds the length of the sofa. Facebook Pinterest Twitter Google Plus Email Print More Oops, we’re sorry. Something went wrong.

Share your take on this idea!Upload your photo here.CLOSE Too Small This miniscule table not only looks out of proportion, it functions poorly as well. Those seated at either end of the sofa would have to do some serious stretching to grab a handful of popcorn or retrieve a book. Also, because the table is so small, its surface is nearly covered with accessories. There’s little room left for a coaster and cup, much less a spot to prop your feet. Tables spanning only one-third of the sofa length are too small and will throw the grouping off balance. continue reading below Too Large Bigger isn’t always better. This coffee table’s well-chosen style can’t compensate for its overscaled size. Nearly as long and as wide as the sofa, it competes rather than complements. A table this long leaves little room for traffic flow and no space for stretching your legs out on the floor. Even the tabletop array looks lonely. If it feels right, it probably is. But this moderately sized coffee table also has the numbers to prove it. The pleasing balance is achieved because the table spans about two-thirds the length of the sofa. The table is substantial enough to adequately anchor the furniture grouping, yet it leaves room for traffic flow around both ends. The accessories fill out the tabletop without being crowded, leaving space for a coffee cup or other everyday objects. Oops, we’re sorry. Something went wrong. Please try again later.
