HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT COFFEE TABLE

At Leather Gallery, we are renowned for our premium-quality furniture, and we pride ourselves on producing stylish, high-quality furniture pieces that effortlessly suit the style of your home.
 

Expertly crafted to complement your lifestyle in terms of comfort, character and style, our wide range of coffee tables are available in a selection of styles, shapes, sizes and designs.

 
A coffee table may be regarded as a must-have accessory in any home, but you may be finding yourself thinking, “how do I choose the perfect coffee table for my living room?” – do not fear we have all the tips and tricks to guide you along the process. A coffee table helps anchor your living room and adds function to your living space. It also provides a display surface for favourite books or decorative pieces.
 
All perfectly styled living rooms start with a well thought out plan that includes even the small spaces, such as your coffee table. These small spaces make a big impact and can influence the look and feel of your space. We have curated our selection of coffee tables to ensure that we have something for everyone and that all spaces are catered for, whether your living is grand and open or if you are tight on space.

 

Coffee tables serve several purposes; from completing a look, to storage and display purposes – they are much needed in any space. The question is, which style will work for your room. Should you go with a wooden coffee table with chunky legs, a metallic coffee table with a glass top; should your coffee table be round, square or rectangular? The options are endless, and at times can be overwhelming. We have put together a buyer’s guild on how to select the perfect coffee table for your lounge.

 Shape and size

 

The height of your coffee table depends on the height of the sofa or occasional chairs it is intended to be paired with. The same thing goes for the length of your coffee table, a low table should be one half or one-third of the length of your couch. As for the shape, a rectangular coffee table usually adapts to any type of room, a square low coffee table requires a wider space while a round coffee table gives a sense of flow and openness.

 

 

Materials

A coffee table can be crafted from a wide range of materials, such as wood, metal, glass and marble. A glass coffee table appears lighter and provides a sense of simplicity and elegance. Metal coffee tables are often characterised by strength and durability, while wooden coffee tables are more traditional with the endless possibilities of woods and finishes. Lastly, marble coffee tables are more suitable for classic and refined environments and add a touch of luxury to space.

 

 Functionality 

Another important factor to consider is, what the primary use of the coffee table will be. Will your coffee table be more decorative, or used to provide storage? How much storage will be enough? Coffee tables are available with shelves, or drawers and can hold everything from kids’ toys to that stash of magazines you will someday read. 

 

Regardless if storage is needed, there is still a good chance you will want to be able to place a drink or a plate down without the risk of it tipping over. Consider what you will mainly use your coffee table for and make sure that it will be able to serve all your needs.

 

At Leather Gallery, we offer a wide selection of coffee tables that are crafted from a variety of different materials, namely wood, metal, glass, marble and stone. Our wide selection of coffee tables come in various shapes, sizes and configurations to effortlessly complement your living space. A few of our coffee tables are available as a nesting set.

 

 

 

Nesting coffee tables are becoming increasingly popular as you can tuck them together if you need more space and pull them apart if you need more space to display your goods when hosting your friends and family.
 
Coffee tables are an integral part of our home décor, they often complete the look and feel of a room as well as provide storage. Our range of curated coffee tables has been carefully selected to meet all our customer's expectations and needs.
