Plenty of people think of a coffee table as a place to put their feet up. If this is the case in your home why not avoid the typical coffee table and go instead with an ottoman-style coffee table that invites users to put their feet up but can also be a solid surface when needed. If your coffee table is going to double as a place for homework arts and crafts or games you may want to consider tables with tough and cleanable surfaces or those with a drawer or shelf underneath to be able to hold appropriate supplies.
Once you have sorted out size function and some of the other details of what you need in coffee table(s) for your home the path to finding one should be much easier. Keep your needs on hand and immediately rule out any tables that don't fit. Measure those that are left against one another until you find the perfect fit.
By first dreaming about the different things you want it to do for you you can then start to focus on what it should look like and how stylish it should be compared to how functional. And this is an important measure to consider because a round wood coffee table will often take on many different functions. So really if you want one that is great for the kids to draw on eat dinner off but you still want it to look sleek cool and minimal then there will be a trade off. And if you don't consider all the aspects before you take a trip to the new designer furniture store you may come back with a very desirable but basically impractical piece of furniture.
Function. The way you use your coffee table is a key factor if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling or climbing on furniture you may like to consider something with round edges which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
