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.
A layered configuration gives maximum flexibility. Whether a coffee table is designed as a complementary piece of furniture or as a focal point we advise carefully placing furniture against a neutral backdrop taking space parameters and furniture configuration into account. We recently designed a bespoke bronze mesh piece which is layered over a base of gold accent Calacatta Oro marble with integrated storage. The mesh provokes discussion and interest and is highlighted in the room by overhead lighting.
This gorgeous table designed by Christophe Delcourt (and recommended by Shea) would look right at home in Kanye and Kim Kardashian West`s minimal monastery which is partly why we like it so much — despite its extremely prohibitive cost. Shea loves the interplay between the brutalist travertine and soft walnut. The proportions are just right too: The slab of stone appears to float between the wide wooden legs.
