Living room tables to match your furnishing style

Both the material and the shape of a coffee table should reflect the furnishing style. A white, no-frills wooden coffee table is ideal for a clean, Nordic-chic living room. The country house style, on the other hand, can be a bit more playful. Natural materials and elegant embellishments skilfully round off the look. If an industrial flair dominates your living room, opt for a dark coffee table made of metal or concrete, for example.

Which coffee table shape suits my sofa?

With a table for the couch, you have the choice between round, rectangular, oval and square models. Depending on the sofa, a certain shape of the living room table may be more suitable:

  • Round coffee tables are great for small seating or U-shaped living areas. It can balance the corners of the sofa and provide an interesting contrast to the rectangular shape of the sofa.
  • Rectangular coffee tables harmonize with most types of sofas and go wonderfully with linear ones, such as a classic 3-seater sofa or a modern corner sofa.
  • An oval living room table can be a good choice if you want to combine the advantages of both a rectangular and a round table. It goes well with different types of sofas and adds an organic touch to the room.
  • The square coffee table goes well with L-shaped sofas as it fills the space and creates a balanced look. It can also be used on larger sofas to create a focal point in the living room.

There is a suitable coffee table for every furnishing style and every sofa shape. In our guide we have summarized the most beautiful coffee table ideas for every sofa. Stop by and let yourself be inspired.

What functions can a coffee table have?

In general, a table in the living room often serves as a shelf for snacks, drinks or the remote control. Depending on the function, a living room table can be used flexibly. Models with storage space are ideal, for example, if you want to hide unwanted things under the tabletop. If you plan to use the coffee table as an additional dining area, a height-adjustable product is recommended. A pull-out coffee table offers space for several people in no time at all, and models on castors adapt to spatial requirements in no time at all.

Which material is the right one?

Coffee tables are available in a wide variety of materials, all of which have different advantages. Here is a brief overview:

  • Wood or solid wood: living room tables made of this natural material impress with a stable and durable design, are easy to care for and scratch-resistant. At the same time, a wooden coffee table is very adaptable and fits perfectly into countless furnishing styles.
  • Metal: Materials such as chrome, stainless steel, aluminum or cast iron appear rustic and cool. So just perfect for a coffee table with an industrial look, which can also be used outdoors without any problems.
  • Marble: Whether made entirely of marble or just the tabletop made of the natural material – living room tables made of marble look classy and are extremely robust. Note here that the respective models often have a high dead weight.
  • Glass: A coffee table made of glass has the advantage that it looks beautifully light and elegant. The scratch-resistant material is highly recommended, especially for small rooms. Compared to a wooden coffee table, however, the cleaning effort for glass table tops is somewhat higher.
  • Rattan: Rattan sofa tables are generally considered to be very stable and robust. Compared to a marble coffee table, rattan living room tables are easy to move due to their light weight. However, they are less suitable for outdoor use because they are sensitive to moisture.
  • Stone or earthenware: Whether warm or cool is a question of the respective grain. Either way, a coffee table made of stone impresses with its robust and easy-care properties and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
  • Concrete: Concrete coffee tables are also perfect for a living room with an industrial design. These score with stability, a long service life and have a unique texture.

How do I clean my living room table?

Depending on the material, a coffee table has to be cleaned differently. In general, for most metal, marble, concrete, etc. models, a soft, lint-free cotton cloth can be used to remove dust. If you have a glass living room table, you can also use a glass cleaner to polish the glass tabletop to a high gloss. If the respective surface is coated or painted, a dampened (not wet!) cloth is sufficient for cleaning. If, on the other hand, there is a solid coffee table made of wood or solid wood in your living room, moisture is not appropriate for care. Instead, the coffee table should be treated with a suitable care oil every six months.

How do I determine the correct dimensions for my coffee table?

The table should not only fit into your living room visually. Size is also an important consideration. It is therefore essential to think about dimensions and the right distance from the sofa or armchair.

Most living room tables are between 30 and 50 centimeters high, which is quite sufficient if you want to use the coffee table as a classic storage space for remote controls etc. or for decorative purposes. However, if you also want to eat at the coffee table, a model with a height of 60 centimeters is ideal. The length depends on the size of your seating area. So that the look in the living room doesn’t look too overloaded, our interior experts recommend a coffee table that is half the length of the seat of your sofa.

Recommendation: The ideal distance between the coffee table and sofa should be around 45 centimetres. The sofa table, on the other hand, should be placed about 80 centimeters away from the television.

Checklist: Considerations when buying a coffee table

To make sure that you are buying the right table for your living room, you should first get an overview of the following aspects:

  • Available space: The size of the living room table is essential for a harmonious overall picture. It is therefore essential to measure the available space in the living room. Based on this, you can estimate whether a small coffee table is sufficient or whether you should invest in a larger model.
  • Height of the living area: the coffee table should be easy to reach from the sofa. A model of the right height must be selected for this. It is therefore essential to coordinate this with the height of your living area.
  • Purpose: A coffee table can be used in many ways – for example for storage or for eating. However, the piece of furniture should be chosen appropriately for this. You are particularly flexible with a robust coffee table made of solid wood.
  • Desired functions: Whether a coffee table should be height-adjustable or have additional storage space under the table top depends on your planned use. Therefore, desired functions must always be considered individually.
  • Shape and material: The look of your new side table is ideally based on your living style. If natural materials dominate in your four walls, a round wooden coffee table is ideal. If, on the other hand, you prefer modern furnishings in an industrial style, a square living room table made of metal or with a glass top is also suitable.
  • Design: Ideally, you should choose a coffee table that matches your existing furnishing style in the living room. This way you are on the safe side and create a harmonious ambience.

Side table: The stylish & practical addition to your interior

Side tables are more than just shelves. Whether as a solitaire or as a nesting table – the practical small pieces of furniture are also visually appealing. With a variety of materials such as metal, wood and glass and in trendy to classic colors, they can be harmoniously combined with existing furniture. The side table flanks the couch landscape, replaces the coffee table in the small living room, or displays vases and decorations in the bedroom. Snacks and the latest reading are just a flick of the wrist away.

Side tables give your living space that great look

Side tables traditionally complement the living room table, but are also practical companions in other rooms. Because the hallway and kitchen, the bedroom, bathroom or study also benefit from the additional storage option. With compartments or drawers, the side table is more than just a side table. Behind closed doors, it offers valuable storage space for accessories, or displays favorite objects in the open compartment.

Side tables as a stylish bedside table for the bedroom

In the bedroom, the side table functions as a bedside table. These give you space-saving storage space for reading glasses, a book or an alarm clock. If the space in the bedroom is limited, make optimal use of the space next to the bed with narrow side tables. In a large bedroom, bedside tables with elaborate and large-format tabletops can be placed instead, which accentuate the bed. When making your selection, also pay attention to the height of the tabletop. Higher table models are ideal for beds with a high mattress and box spring beds, otherwise a height of 50-60 cm.

Practical storage space for the living room

While coffee table books, a tray and decorative elements are often presented on the living room table, a side table by the sofa or armchair provides snacks and drinks for the evening in front of the TV. It supplements the space offered by the coffee tables or replaces them entirely in the small living room. Some models can even be slid into one another, allowing flexible use of space. A side table gives it cosiness – place a table lamp on it and your couch with fluffy cushions becomes a cozy reading corner.

Side tables as eye-catchers for the hallway

The entrance area is often narrow. There is no place for large chests of drawers here, instead a small side table welcomes you. A higher model takes your keys, mail and small items, which end up in a chic decorative bowl. In addition, the shapely piece of furniture contributes to the flair and gives first indications of the living style of your home. In white, the model blends in particularly well with other furnishings.

Small tables in the study as faithful companions

Side tables are considered the classic companions of upholstered furniture. In the study, they prove that they are true all-round talents. Here they stand at the side of the desk and ensure order. Brain food and drinks can be placed on it, giving you a better overview of the worktop. Above all, they prevent spilling of drinks and thus stains on documents, as well as damage to electronic devices. In addition, a small side table can also be used as a shelf for writing utensils and office supplies. Plus: To ensure a tidy overall picture, simply slide your little helper under the desk!

Small side tables with a big impact

Design side tables are stylistic devices with a great effect in every room, with every style. With unconventional shapes, colors and materials, the interior pieces not only play a supporting role. With elegant marble, rustic oak wood, mirror effect or cubic shapes, they emphasize or contrast any style. Current favorites are small tables made of rough concrete, black or white metal, and transparent Plexiglas stools.
