As a rule of thumb a coffee table should be about 18 inches from the people sitting beside it. This will give you an idea of what shape will work best for your living room space. If you have a long sofa you are going to need a longer table or a pair of coffee tables that will bridge the whole space. If you have a smaller sitting area you can choose a smaller table. The ultimate goal is that everyone who is sitting around the table can reach it without having to do any uncomfortable stretching.
Evenings however are another story and that is when the modern coffee table may be better known as a cocktail table. Precisely like any traditional coffee table a cocktail table is set low to the ground and generally placed in front of a sofa or seating area. However there are some cocktail tables that feature removable benches and other features compatible with game tables. The difference is subtle but a cocktail table is not designed specifically for gaming of any kind and tends to be a little more formal. Game tables often have features like built-in boards or places specifically designed to hold chess pieces and similar objects.
Wooden coffee tables are usually very sturdy and durable. If you don't have room for a large television stand convertible wood coffee tables more than serve the purpose. Because the height is adjustable they can be made higher to serve the function as a small buffet or dining table. These are the perfect solution for couples or families that can't afford a large home.
If you want to create a coffee table display select pieces with a similar theme and group them together then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement to add interest to the centre of the room if you have a minimalist theme create depth by contrasting shapes a simple round vase on a square table for example.
