We Love These Coffee Tables (And You Might Too)
A coffee table plays a key role in the grand scheme of decorating a living room. It is a furniture item of utility, and it also gives the homeowner a chance to make a style statement in the room. It offers the perfect spot to place magazines and decorative objects.
If you are enjoying a cup of coffee on your own or with a guest in the living room, this furniture piece allows you to you to rest your cup at an arm’s length.
Given the flair and panache a coffee table brings to the living room, we can’t help but notice the kinds of table designs one can incorporate in their homes. Adding to that thought, the Mansionly team shares with you 5 coffee table designs that grab attention instantly:
1) Simplicity is beautiful
If you derive pleasure from all the simple things in life, then a coffee table that places more significance on design is perfect for you. With a simple glass top and brightly coloured sides, the furniture piece can warm up the living room decor.

What are your thoughts? Is going simple your cup of tea?
2) Embrace ethnicity with practicality
If you have a traditional but rich taste in furniture, then this wooden coffee table is a practical idea. You can not only place this attractive furniture item in your living room but also store essentials inside it. Having a coffee table with a secret stash may be useful to tidy-up or to keep a pen handy for homeowners who face storage issues.

Pick a coffee table in solid wood as the material is authentic, warm and natural. Combine that with ethnic designs, the coffee table will always retain its charm.
3) Ottomans are all the rage
Ottomans are comfy and convenient. If you are tired of keeping your feet up on a hard coffee table and want something that is a more comfortable footrest, use an ottoman. If your living room follows a neutral palette, pick a colour that shines through rest of the decor.
As far as fabrics are concerned, there is a plethora of options to choose from – silk, cotton, crochet, leather and more. Round or square ottomans are wonderful picks for smaller spaces as they are easier to move around and take up less visual space.

Alternatively, give a little touch of glam to the space with poufs – an ottoman substitute – that gives out a fun and relaxed piece of furniture. This hand woven piece of furniture is a cute element in the room and exudes delight. Do you agree.
4) It’s all about the brass
A table top with wooden legs is passé. Choose a coffee table with intricately-designed brass legs or bottom; the metallic finish conveniently transforms a simple furniture piece into something chic and magnificent.

Even in a bohemian living room as shown in the picture above, this type of coffee table not only stands out but also acts a completely functional item. Make sure you polish brass frequently so that the metal doesn’t lose its shine.
5) Live Edge-inspired table designs
Live edge or natural edge is a style of furniture where the furniture designer or artisan combines the natural edge or element of the wood with the design of the piece. As you can see here, the coffee table has a natural finish and therefore, it spreads a more organic vibe in the area.
