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.
The purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee magazines and remotes it may also moonlight as a dining table a desk a children's everything table and a footrest or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character or at least the objects on it do so what does your coffee table say about you?
Scale & Size. Firstly the scale of the table is probably the most important factor the table will anchor the room and if it's too big or too small then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space if there is a square space between a set of sofa's such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge then you could go for square round or oversized rectangle.
Glass coffee table - traditionally glass coffee tables were looked upon as a sign of luxury. This furniture is common among the upper class of society. However with time it became easier to construct these tables and they were offered at reasonable prices that were affordable to almost everyone. The best part about glass tables is their sophisticated and refined look. These tables are suitable with almost every type of décor. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Durability however can be an issue at times but there is no comparison to its elegance.
