While choosing a coffee table may feel like both an overwhelming and an unsexy task there are things to consider — beyond your overall aesthetic — to make the process a little less daunting. Nina Gotlieb director of hospitality and contract design at West Elm points out that it`s helpful to consider the proportions and relative mass of each piece in your living room. Sometimes if you have a super-leggy couch you don`t want a super-leggy coffee table. Or if you have a sofa that`s upholstered all the way to the ground you don`t want a super-massive coffee table because then everything feels too heavy she says.
We firmly believe that everyone seated in a living room should have a place to rest their coffee or cocktail say the Hovey sisters. But according to them many affordable coffee-table options are too small for everyone to have reachable access to a decent surface. Their solution to the tiny-table curse as they call it? Even tinier tables. They suggest using a cluster of sculptural tables to increase surface area when a single coffee table won`t cut it. A cluster of three accent tables in contrasting shapes and styles like these can provide exponentially more visual interest than one slightly larger one they explain.
The Hovey sisters hate sectional sofas with uneven sides (take a peek at the Floyd here for an idea of what they`re talking about) explaining that they throw off the symmetry of a room and make coffee-table selections very hard. To combat that asymmetry they suggest adding an extra section to the short side with a square coffee table like this woven-wicker one that can also work as seating or an ottoman.
