Lucky we! Coffee and cocktail tables come in different sizes and shapes to fit your unique room. You have to take into account your seating configuration and the room size while looking for the right table. Spacious sectionals, or a living room set of a large sofa with loveseat, match perfect with square and round tables. Rectangular and oval coffee tables are ideal for small spaces. Use oval and round tables if you have kids around (no-corners are safer for kids).
As to the sizes, the visual harmony is gained if the coffee table is 2/3 your sofa’s length. While setting the stage of your living room, consider leaving space for legs between your table and sofa. Usually the coffee table in height should be the same as the seat of your sofa or lower.
-Elegance vs Function-

A family room definitely needs sturdy construction and more functionality. Additional shelves, drawers and extra space for storage is a great idea! Some coffee tables have an option of the surface to be raised for eating or working.
