How to Choose the Right Coffee Table

Choosing the right coffee table for your space is largely about proportions—dimensions, clearance and balance with other elements in the room. Generally, your coffee table should be about two-thirds the length of your sofa.

Shape should be considered in relation to both function and style. At the most basic level, the best shape is determined by the layout of the room and how much space is required to move around it. Shape also adds a stylistic element to the space. For instance, a heavier, round design like our Soori coffee table can anchor a large space or act as an accent to furniture pieces with more tailored shapes and longer legs, which add visual lightness.

The height of the coffee table should align with the cushions of your sofa and other seating to ensure it is comfortable and aesthetically balanced. A few inches shorter will also work well.
