Cocktail tables, also known as coffee tables, are available in an excessive number of styles, textures, and colors. You can match a cocktail/ coffee table to any style, including popular ones like farmhouse, coastal, boho, contemporary etc. The best time to choose a cocktail table (addressed as table throughout the remainder of this writing), is after you already have your anchor pieces which makes it easier to judge the correct style and size that you need. Decide where you want to place a table in your home and consider these tips to help you find the perfect one.

Furniture Can be Art
Narrow down your options by filtering your search by the style you’re looking for. What style is the rest of your furniture? You want your new table to blend in with the existing pieces. What type of table compliments your lifestyle? You want your table to be an accent piece, but we all know they serve much more purpose than that. Do you envision yourself, family and friends eating or playing games around the table? Do you need a table that provides extra storage? Do you want a lift-top table or a round one? It’s important to ensure the table is both stylish and functional – otherwise it just takes up space.

Choose a Flattering Size
A rule of thumb is that the height of your table should be level with or a few inches lower than your sofa cushions and chairs. The table should be proportional to the rest of your furniture and the space. Don’t make it difficult to reach from where you will be sitting or clunky to navigate around. The table shouldn’t overpower or block statement pieces like the sofa. Ideally, your table should be two-thirds the length of your sofa and placed 12-18 inches away.

Placement is Key
Choose a table that is proportionate to the other furniture in the room, and which allows you to maneuver freely around it without getting tripped up or having to move it out of the way. Try to place the table between 12 and 18 inches away from the sofa to avoid overcrowding while still enjoying a comfortable reach. Tables are available in any shape, color, size, and material so remember to choose the one that fits your lifestyle and matches your aesthetic!
