In recent weeks I've spent quite a bit of time looking for coffee and end tables for clients. Getting the style and size right to work with the rest of the furniture in the space takes quite a bit of juggling and an understanding of standard furniture sizes.
The standard height of a coffee table is between 16 - 18 inches, but some can be as high as 21 inches. How do you know which height to choose?
The size of your coffee table should work with your sofa and other furniture in your room. It should also work with the size of the room overall. Let's check this out.
How do you feel about the coffee table choice in this lovely room? I would like to see something longer (remember the 2/3 the length of the sofa rule). This little beauty is having a difficult time holding her own with this sofa.
Even with two tables this room does not look over furnished.
If your room is spacious and/or the furniture is large in scale, choose heavier wood tables or ones with lots of tiers or drawers.
