Let’s face it — no living room is complete without a coffee table. It doesn’t just tie a room together, it completes it. You could probably count on one hand how many homeowners don’t have a centerpiece in the middle of their room. But, like all living room furniture, coffee tables can get a little pricey. The keyword here, however, is can. There are plenty of affordable coffee tables out there, but doing your homework is vital. Luckily, we did it for you, so take a look below at three of the best coffee table options out there.
Best Open Shelf Coffee Table
If you’re someone whose space tends to get a little cluttered, you might want to consider a coffee table with some storage capabilities. This Chandler Rustic Industrial Solid Wood and Steel Coffee Table with Open Shelf from Emerald Home Furnishings. The table is available in two sizes: 45″ and 48″, and is constructed of solid wood and steel, making it a highly durable, yet stylish, centerpiece. With an open shelf attached the bottom, you have room to store some items like coffee table books, coasters, or cutlery.
Best Round Coffee Table
You might not be a fan of the standard, rectangular coffee table, and that’s ok. If you prefer circular tables, you have options, and there are arguably none better than this Grey Top Black Frame Ashwood Round Coffee Table from Household Essentials. The 31.5″ x 31.5″ table is built with a strong metal frame, with a distressed ashwood top to give it an aesthetic worthy of your living room. The smooth laminate top is easily cleaned with a feather duster or cloth. If you don’t have that much space, this table is perfect for your home and provides great value.
Best Coffee Table on a Budget
Speaking of great value, there is probably no greater value than this Dark Espresso Parsons Modern Coffee Table by DHP. If you’re into a very simple aesthetic and more concerned with function over design, this coffee table certainly serves its purpose. This 19″ x 39″ x 17.7″ table is highly durable, and with a dark espresso wood grain finish, it blends in perfectly with almost any type of color scheme. Be warned, however—it only holds up to 50 lbs. on the surface. That’s typically more than enough weight for any standard coffee table, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
