As the centrepiece of the living room, it’s important that your coffee table really looks the part. Yes, it’s got to be both useful and unobtrusive, but above all it’s those looks that make a great table. At Dunelm, good looking coffee tables are the only kind we sell, so have a look through our collection and get ready to treat your living room to something special.
A great coffee table should sit quite low down, as the last thing you need is to have your view of the TV blocked as soon as you put something on it. That’s why most of ours sit about 40 cm off the ground. Some models are slightly higher, however, and they are great for placing next to the couch rather than directly in front of it. It’s a matter of how you’re going to use it and where in the room it will sit. Just note the height when you choose the one you like.
Once you’ve decided on a size, the fun starts, as you get to choose from this truly magnificent collection of coffee tables. Our designers have really gone to town on some of them because the dimensions of the coffee table really let the imagination run wild. A coffee table that’s a little experimental is a great feature in the living room – it’s one piece of furniture that doesn’t necessarily have to match the rest of the cupboards and drawers around the room.
You can choose a simple table that’s basically four legs and a tabletop, and that’s just fine for many people. However, you can also make your coffee table into an extra storage space, as many of them come with drawers and shelves inside them. They’re just perfect for keeping books and magazines tucked away.
If form is more important than function, you’re spoilt for choice with our coffee table selection. From chunky wooden framed designs to glass-topped elegance, all the popular styles are here. But why stop there? You can choose marble-topped or go for distressed timber, and with an array of shapes to choose from, it doesn’t have to be a simple rectangle if you’d prefer something curvy or geometric.
Placing an interesting coffee table in the centre of the room is a great way to break up the expanse of carpet or floorboards, and when you look at these designs, you’ll see that it can almost be considered an ornament or a piece of sculpture. And who knows, one day you might even put a cup of coffee on it.
