Walnut Sculpted Coffee Table
Coffee Table Buyers’ Guide
Just because a coffee table looks good in the store, doesn’t mean it will fit your living room. On average, a coffee table should be 16-18 inches from the floor up to the top of the table. With this height, an average adult seated near the table can place an item on it without any strain on the arms or the back. However, this guide assumes that you have an average sofa (17-19 inches) near the coffee table. So if you have lower seating such as an armchair or a futon or higher seating, then a coffee table this height may be hard to reach. So, the optimal height for a coffee table depends on the type of seating around it. Generally aim for the tabletop being one to two inches lower than the height of the seat cushion.
The way you decorate a coffee table will depend on the type of aura your living room has and what type of decorations you prefer. If you like simplicity and the idea of mixing flowers and books isn’t what you like, then try placing one statement piece that matches your personality on your coffee table. A vase with fresh flowers or an eye-catching sculpture will surely complete your living room design. If you do not have an eye for interior design, a simple trick is to use a tray to collect all the items together. It is the perfect way to force items together and make them look unified. Don’t be afraid to experiment, with geometric objects, books, magazines, and flowers.
