Rules For Picking a Coffee Table (+ 105 of Our Favorites for Every Space) Photo by Tessa Neustadt for EHD | From: How to Add Style to a Neutral Living Room The coffee table.
The coffee table is the centrepiece of the room. So useful, yet so often overlooked. Sofas get all the attention in the living room, and they certainly keep us comfy. The coffee table, on the other hand, is the living room’s workhorse. It stores our drinks, remote controls, favourite computing devices, cherished keepsakes, and, for better or worse, our late-night take-out dinners. It occasionally doubles as a stool (which we’re not endorsing, for legal reasons, but we won’t deny having done on occasion), a desk, or a craft table. With such a large, varied role, you’d think it’d be one of the first furniture pieces you consider when moving into a new location and/or re-decorating… but it’s not often the case.
