To make your space feel balanced, choose a coffee table that feels proportionate to the size and scale of your sectional. Height, width and visual weight are all important factors to consider. Think about it: an oversized coffee table just feels right parked in front of a large, overstuffed sectional — and it’s big enough to accommodate all who sit at your sectional. Conversely, a modern, clean-lined sectional pairs well with a slimmer coffee table, such as one with a metal base or an acrylic style.

HI Shelly, I really liked your post. We just moved to a new place and are redecorating our home. Our living room is very long (an open floor design) with kitchen and dining area in continuity. We just got a new sectional and have placed it along the wall since we are planning to wall mount our TV on the fireplace (which is diagonal to the living room). This way our living room looks longer and there is much open space between sectional and the dining table. However, this way anyone sitting on the sectional can see kitchen and dining area (both in the straight line of the view). Another option is to keep the sectional floating in the middle of the room so that one side of the sectional has its back against the dining table and the kitchen and then we can keep TV against the wall (where we have sectional right now). But this might make our living room congested. I m very confused. Any thoughts? I can share image/s of the space, if you would like. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Hi Shelly, This is all great information!! I hope you can help me. My sectional, in my living room, is 9’x11’6″ plus a chaise. (So the sectional is “U” shaped, including the chaise.) I have a coffee table that fits perfectly it the center, no other furniture. My floorpan is very open so the sectional does not have any walls to butt up to. The room adjoins an open foyer, bar area, and the breakfast/kitchen area. I don’t know what size rug to put underneath the sectional to anchor the room? I can photos if it helps. Thanks!! Laurie

Catherine Staples Interiors A lip edge or tray top on a coffee table is always a smart choice if you have a tendency to spill your coffee or have kids that will be using the coffee table for snacks and drinks. They’re also good if you entertain often and don’t want to worry about red wine getting spilled on your carpet. Coffee tables should be the same height as the surrounding seating, with 18 inches being a good average (although it will depend on your furniture). If you select a coffee table with a lip, make sure the lip isn’t higher than the adjacent seating, or you’ll end up hitting your drink against the lip when you try to set it down. The idea is to put your drink down, not up.

Hi Alina, When it comes to coffee tables you really need to think through how you will be using the piece. A hard surface, traditional coffee table provides the most function since the top is solid and you can easily set items on the table. A ottoman will add softness to a room and can also be additional seating if needed but it does have limits on what you can put on it. In many cases you need a tray to sit on an ottoman if you want to put items on it. I’d recommend a round, hard surface coffee table. It will give you function and it doesn’t have sharp corners will be will be good with kids. Also, since most living and family rooms are square or rectangular and so is the furniture (sofa, side tables, rugs etc) a round coffee table brings in another shape will adds visual softness and contrast. I hope these tips help. Shelly

Annette English When you have two sofas or any larger seating arrangement, a big coffee table might seem like the obvious solution. But also consider a pair of matching coffee tables. They will keep the focus off one large piece of furniture and let your eye move around the room more easily. One classic coffee table size is 48 by 24 inches, so you can plan on that when thinking about your furniture arrangement. A large coffee table is often double that: 48 inches square.

A living room without a coffee table is a lot like a supermodel without lipstick, undone. Just as lipstick is one detail that can complete a look, so too can the perfect coffee table. Coffee tables serve several purposes; from completing a look, to storage and display they are much needed in a space. The question is which style will work for your room. Should you go with a wood one with chunky legs, metallic with a glass top; should it be round, square or rectangular? The options are endless and at times can be overwhelming. My ten tips will help break down the maze of decisions and steer you in the direction of the perfect coffee table.

Tucker & Marks First think about what you need your coffee table to do for you, or what your room is missing, then pick a table that provides the solution.Before buying a table, mark the footprint with painter’s tape so you can see the scale of the piece in the room and how that affects the surrounding furniture. If you have a very large room and a large coffee table, you can break up the scale of the table by flanking it with pairs of ottomans or benches, as in this example. When there’s a party, they can be moved out of the way for better circulation, but for everyday use these extra seats help connect the sofa at one end and the pair of chairs at the other end. Be sure to use a pair of ottomans — not just a single one.
