A coffee table is an indispensable piece of furniture. It’s the perfect spot for a stack of books, a cup of tea or glass of juice or even your tired feet.
But for the piece to serve its function, you should consider the proportion of the coffee table to the surroundings. You have to ensure that there’s at least two to three feet between the piece and the surrounding furniture. That way, people can move around easily.
In tight quarters, a round table may be the best option as there are no sharp corners, and it is less difficult to navigate. But whatever shape of table you are going to select, it is important to note that the height of the table should be the same as your sofa.
