Coffee Tables have played a central role for many conversations and meetings over the years. Even Kramer from the popular American Sitcom, Seinfeld, realised its importance – he went on to write a coffee table book about coffee tables! Coffee tables also play an important role in another sitcom, Friends, with many of their conversations happening over the table. It’s no longer an ordinary piece of furniture.

The tables can also be made of metal and irregular materials that are then moulded into different shapes and sizes. These are generally used as statement pieces.

Your coffee table may be tiny, but with the right décor it can be the key to making your room amazing.

Top Stacks With Tiny Details

A table grounded by trays and books can carry little sparkly accents, like gemstones or candles, without the look seeming slight. Plus, candle colours and scents can be easily swapped out with the seasons.

Monochromatic

Try a Single Statement Piece

Make your favorite piece the room’s focal point by displaying it alone in the center of the table. With a pretty planter or interesting sculpture, the effect is understated, not spare.

“A coffee table has a different purpose than that of a dining or study table. A study table is generally used for work purposes whereas a dining table is used to serve food. A coffee table, on the other hand, is used just to place things over. This is probably the reason why its design can be slightly more detailed and intricate than the former two,” explains Parul Amla, interior designer, Antrik Design Studio, New Delhi.
