One of the greatest artifices of decoration is the versatility of transforming furniture, and sometimes even the environment, into functional pieces to make your daily life more practical, comfortable and cozy. In this context, coffee tables appear as the great wildcard of living rooms. In addition to decorating, they serve as support for the sofas that are around them and, best of all, they delimit the environment and take up little space.

As the name implies, this type of table is usually right in the center of the room. In different sizes, colors and shapes, coffee tables are also found in different materials such as wood, glass, acrylic, lacquer or metal. By the way, avoid the first one — which is more susceptible to stains — if you are going to use it to add drinks or food.

Tables can have a more retro look or a more modern design. The decoration is on account of vases with flowers, family portraits, magazines and books (depending on the model), among other decorative objects, and also serve for the remote control when you are watching TV or to support the tray with coffee in the morning. It will all depend on your taste.

How to use the coffee table in decorating

The starting point for any decoration is to leave the environment with your own face, imprinting your personality in every detail. So, before choosing the coffee table for your room, make an analysis of what you like. Does the environment have a specific style? Do you have a lot of furniture or do you prefer something more minimalist? Coziness, energy or functionality, which is more important to you? With this well-defined, you can now choose your coffee table, but remember that the furniture should compose the space and not dictate what it will be like, following the room’s decoration in harmony with colors, tones and styles.

Regardless of the model, the height should be less than or equal to the sofa seats and should not occupy the entire central space of the room. After all, people need to move around the environment without bumping into furniture. Before going shopping, take measurements of the room. Architect Adriana Ferreira, from Santa Irreverence Arquitetura & Constructor, recommends leaving a space of 40 to 60 centimeters between the table and other furniture that is nearby. It is also not recommended to place very tall objects on the coffee table, avoiding disturbing the view of the room or even the conversation from one sofa to another.

See below the most suitable model for each type of room, in addition to the advantages and disadvantages of some coffee tables, which will depend on the resident’s personality or even who the residents are.

With other furniture in the room

It’s worth combining the coffee table with the other furniture in the room and it doesn’t necessarily have to be the sofa. Inspiration can come from the side table, sideboard, bookcase, rack, or TV panel. This is if you want to enhance the environment, creating a unity in the decoration, but it is not a rule to be followed strictly.

The basic principle here is to maintain harmony. “They must be harmonic, but not necessarily part of the same line”, explains the professional. You can use different materials and designs as long as some details of other furniture or objects refer to the coffee table.

In small room

When the room is small, the classic “less is more” rule comes with everything. Is it worth investing in a coffee table? If the answer is yes, assess the space you will have available, taking care not to obstruct circulation, and opt for more neutral colors. “Prefer low, long or curved tables,” adds Adriana.

Another recommendation is to choose the furniture according to the room format. For square rooms, opt for square or round tables. For rectangular rooms, choose rectangular or oval tables. In this way, you guarantee continuity to the environment, delimiting the space well.

With mat

When choosing a rug under the coffee table, measure the size of both and choose a model that is larger than the furniture. The rest will depend on your style. If stripped down, wooden table and natural fiber rug with candles plant pots to decorate. If it’s more retro, it’s worth investing in colorful rugs with designs and figures. If it’s classic or modern, choose a small table made of sheet steel and acrylic or lacquer, a more basic neutral rug, and decorate with flowers, candles, decorative boxes or a stylized tray.

If you like bold colors, a wooden table with a glass top will also go well with a colorful rug, but if your style is more romantic, use and abuse flowers on the table, in the pattern of the rug and in accessories.

Mirrored or glass

Hollow tables or tables with a mirror or glass finish are very elegant to add to the look of a room and give a greater sense of lightness, but should be avoided if you have small children or pets. Security comes before aesthetics.

If there are no restrictions, choose a very resistant model that matches the rest of the decor to ensure balance with the other furniture. However, if the table is made entirely of glass, you gain more freedom, as transparency goes well with everything.

Colorful

If the space is large, the combination of colors such as black and white fills the look well, as well as colored coffee tables in contrast to a more neutral space, for example, to highlight a focal point in the room. “Usually, they are used to highlight environments with more clean decor, where the table becomes the object that draws the most attention”, says the architect.

It’s a shootout if the idea is to leave the environment with a more sophisticated and full of personality. If this is your intention, the tip is to invest in the color you like the most, so the room will reflect your style and will also make your eyes feel good.

Of beanbags

Who doesn’t like an ottoman? One of the most functional items in the decoration can also be used as a coffee table. In fact, using ottomans as coffee tables is a super stylish idea, because, in addition to being beautiful, they serve as support for sitting or stretching your leg to rest or watch a movie. You can use a single larger ottoman or combine several smaller ones, exploring different colors.

This is where your imagination rules and, of course, your living room space. Also, if you need a place to store your stuff, invest in those chest ottomans. “This type of table is ideal for small environments, as it provides versatility”, adds Adriana Ferreira.

Exotic

For those who want to get away from more conventional styles, the best option is to complete the room’s decor with an exotic coffee table. “All types of tables are valid. The only recommendation is that they follow the style of the room and the residents”, he recalls. It can be a wood worked like patina, for example; a mix of wood or metal with upholstery to give that more rustic and industrial feel, depending on the material chosen; a differentiated cut, leaving aside the traditional geometric shapes, turned feet reminiscent of a chess table.

Generally, these pieces are harder to find in stores, so it’s best to look for them in design galleries or artists’ galleries.

Where to buy coffee tables for your home

In addition to the physical stores that we usually see around with furniture and decoration for the home, you can also enjoy all the convenience of the internet. There are several models of coffee tables: the most traditional, colorful, and made of wood or pallets, mirrored or with glass, in the style of ottomans, to more functional options for storing objects and decorating. Prices also range from those that are very affordable to the pocket and some more expensive pieces. That will depend on your style and how much you want to invest. To help you with this choice, check out a gallery full of inspirations.

6 ideas for decorating your coffee table

As all the attention in the room is focused on the coffee table, there are several ways to explore the decor. The discreet flower vases gave way to a mix of objects that represent the personal touch of the residents, whether through favorite books and magazines, travel souvenirs, photos of family or friends, works of art and items that are trending in decor of the moment with candlesticks, candles, boxes, trays and, of course, the flower vase to add that finishing touch.

It is important to keep symmetry, colors and textures that follow the same decoration line throughout the room. The architect gives one more tip: “items should be organized in a harmonious way, without occupying too much of the table surface, nor being too bulky”. So here are some ideas for decorative objects to inspire your coffee table:

1. Flowerpots

Flower pots are always a good option to enhance the decor and still convey that feeling of tranquility for being surrounded by nature. Arrangements with plants, colored or monochromatic, always give elegance to the environment. You can choose your favorite flower or mix different species to create something unique.

Choose ceramic, merino, steel, bronze, aged gold, or transparent vases, depending on the effect you want to create. Pay attention only to their size so that they do not interfere with the visualization. Shells, river stones or seeds complement the look.

2. Travel souvenirs or photos

Do you know that unforgettable trip you took with your family or in the company of friends? Show everyone through photo frames or souvenirs you brought from each place you visited. After all, who doesn’t like a souvenir, right? In addition to leaving your personality in evidence, you can share these moments and remember whenever you are in the room, at a moment of rest or during the reception of visitors.

3. Books and Magazines

Set aside your favorite books and magazines to decorate the coffee table, why not? Modern and useful, they can also be used to leave decorations such as small statues, paperweights or vases at different heights, creating a very nice composition. If you have questions about quantity or gender, there are no rules. The recommendation is to keep the same size between them, in addition to colors that match the room and the coffee table. Another tip is to keep hardcover books on display, because they are more resistant.

4. Candlesticks, candelabra and candles

The candlesticks and chandeliers represent personality and add a touch of refinement to the environment. While the first holds only one candle, the other can be used to store several of them. There are several models, silver, bronze, crystal, it will depend on your style. You can group candles of different sizes or a group of identical candlesticks. In addition to giving that refined touch to the environment, the atmosphere can also be cozy when you light them.

5. Boxes or baskets

Boxes and baskets are great allies for keeping clutter organized and can also appear on the coffee table to hide video game or TV controls. They are also used to store magazines, if you want to leave them on display, but without scattering them, or fruit if you want to leave your living room with a country atmosphere.

6. Trays

The trays also help to organize what is arranged on the coffee table, delimiting the space between the decoration and the furniture. In the case of ottomans, it serves as a support for decorative objects. If you receive visits with a certain frequency, it can be a handy tool when you need to remove it to free up more space.

6 inspirations for making your own coffee table

Those who like to get their hands dirty can resort to the many do-it-yourself ideas that can be found on the internet, or gather materials that are right next to the house to create their own style of coffee table. Get inspired by six beautiful and creative models to make your own piece!

1. Pallet table

Without spending too much, you can transform wooden pallets, which at first glance are rustic, into a beautiful coffee table full of style. Then just combine them with four little feet or wheels of your taste, paint in your favorite color or that follows the room’s decor, glass or mirror to give a more sophisticated air to the furniture.

2. Book table

A simple and easy idea to do, especially when you have some part of the house that was removed during a renovation and then was left leaning in a corner. In this example, a well-detonated door was reused as a wooden top, while bound books were turned into legs to support and style the coffee table.

3. Wooden table

If your style is more laid-back, wood emerges as one of the most versatile materials to work with. For a charming, half-country coffee table, take a piece of aged wood and combine it with the legs of two stools. Don’t forget to use sandpaper to avoid accidents with splinters.

4. Log table

Still in a more rustic style, another idea joins wooden logs to form a unique coffee table. If you have a farm or a farm, finding the material won’t be a problem. Just gather them together until you reach the shape you prefer, round, square or rectangular. To maintain the composition, wrap a strap or a strong rope around the logs and finish with a glass top.

5. Barrel table

If you can’t do without a good wine, how about enhancing the decor based on that taste? A good idea is to use a barrel to make your coffee table. Just cut it at the height you want and then just decorate.

6. Recycled table

Finally, an idea for those who like to invest in recycling and sustainable decoration. This tip asks for an MDF board, wood logs, and slices of these logs for finishing, glue, grout and casters.

In addition to being beautiful, coffee tables can be very useful for storing those objects that are sometimes thrown on the sofa. Not to mention the decoration, which gains another component to enhance the look. “The coffee table is one of the most versatile pieces of furniture, because, in addition to decorating the environment, it helps to delimit the space in the room and has great visibility”, adds Adriana. With so many different types, sizes and ideas, you can’t not find a model that matches your style and your living room decor. Keep in mind that they can be positioned in a variety of ways, depending on the room’s space. Use your imagination and make your home ready for guests and for you.
