Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
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 dont 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.
Coffee tables are also used as end tables in some homes. Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies such as knitting quilting or needlepoint.
