The coffee table is the central focus of any living space, the pivot around which the rest of the room rotates. Crucially, it also serves two very important purposes in any living room: functionality and style. As a flat and stable surface conveniently centred in your living room, a good coffee table is a functional storage space for hot drinks (from where it gets its name), books, magazines, remote controls, phones, keys, and more. But, just as importantly, the coffee table needs to match the stylistic tone of the rest of the room. That’s why coffee tables in the DeubaXXL range always keep both considerations in mind. Stylish yet practical, DeubaXXL coffee tables come in a choice of colours, sizes, and design styles to suit all kinds of living spaces.
Choosing the right size
When choosing a coffee table, you’ll want to consider the size and shape of the piece and how it will fit with the rest of your living room furniture . As mentioned, this table is usually one of the centrepieces of a room and as such, needs to look and feel right for the space. Living rooms come in all shapes and sizes, so try and choose a coffee table that fits the space available. A good guide is to choose a table that is roughly two thirds the length of the sofa. This is a handy ratio for picking a table that will neatly fit into your space. Additionally, your new table should ideally be positioned 30-45cm (12-18 inches) away from your sofa. The table should also allow for between 60-75cm (24-30 inches) of circulation space between its edge and the TV stand or fireplace. A table that is too big can make the room feel cramped. Too small, and it may be overshadowed by other furniture. With a choice of sizes available in the DeubaXXL range, big or small, you can find a coffee table that’s perfect for your living room.
Choosing the right shape
You know which size you need, now it’s time to choose the shape. DeubaXXL offers a variety of square and round coffee tables suited to all kinds of interiors. Round coffee tables can be easier to navigate than square tables, as they take less floor space, and the lack of sharp corners can be ideal if you have small children or pets. Rectangular or square coffee tables provide more surface space and offer cleaner lines around which to design your seating area. If you prefer some flexibility in your designs, the DeubaXXL collection includes rotating tables, so you can adjust the shape and increase table surface as and when you need it.
Choosing the right materials and colour
Apart from the practical considerations of size and shape, the style of your coffee table is hugely affected by the colour and material you choose. As a focal point of your living room, your table needs to be in keeping with your overall design style, but can also act as a unifying centrepiece, bringing other items, such as shelves , sofas, lamps , and soft furnishings together. White or black coffee tables offer neutral tones that work in almost any space. Wood or poly rattan designs also offer a more natural palette. DeubaXXL modern coffee tables and side tables are available in a selection of neutral tones, including black, white, and grey, with natural wood finishes also available. Whether you need a large or small coffee table, choose your size, design, colour, and finish from the extensive range of tables in the DeubaXXL collection.
