A coffee table needs to do double duty as a surface to set down cups and glasses, but also as a place for display so you can enjoy seeing flowers or houseplants, ceramics, favourite books and more in your living area. Think about whether you’d like a design with a lower shelf where you can put items such as throws, along with books and favourite magazines. The alternative is a coffee table without a shelf, like our Rochester coffee table, which will give your room a more minimalist feel. It could also help a small room feel more airy and spacious, if you’re facing this challenge. Decide, too, whether you want a painted coffee table, which gives you the option of customising your piece of furniture and makes it easy to combine your new coffee table with the existing designs in the room through your choice of paint shade. Meanwhile, a glass top looks smart and gives your table added protection, and our Bruton coffee table has the option to add one. If you like the idea of individualising your room even more, an upholstered coffee table lets you choose both upholstery fabric and paint colour.
Oak coffee tables bring the beauty of natural materials into a space you occupy daily. They’re the ideal choice if you’re already committed to using a palette of organic materials in your home, or you like the idea of bringing the warmth of wood into your living space. Our Rochester coffee table has a beautiful oak top which shows off the grain of the wood and is appealingly tactile. You can choose between a natural oak finish that creates a more rustic look, or opt for a Danish oil treatment that gives it richer colour. Choose this option and you can continue to treat it with Danish oil from time to time to care for and protect the timber. The mid tone of oak is combined with metal legs in this coffee table design, and with dimensions of W:120cm D:60cm H:44cm, it’s ideal for pairing with any of our sofa designs. We can make custom sizes, too, so you can introduce our oak coffee table in the proportions that best suit your room.
A coffee table is a living room staple for good reason and ours are practical as well as appealing pieces of furniture. It’s a useful surface for anyone sitting on a facing sofa or armchair and can also be set between a pair of sofas for a sociable living room scheme. For sitters who can’t comfortably reach the table to pick up a cup or glass, think about providing side tables as well as a coffee table. We offer designs to match our coffee tables to create a well thought-out room scheme. You might also want to add a console table to your scheme as a further display surface for your room. Our range includes designs to co-ordinate with our coffee tables in style or colour.
