We love sofas at Apt2B. They're our favorite part of the living room. But here's the thing about sofas‐once you're sitting on them you could't really admire them anymore.

You could appreciate the cozy, sure, but you're not getting a chance to take in their beauty. You know what you do see when sitting on your sofa (besides the TV)? The coffee table. It's always there.

Right in front of the sofa. If you actually break it down, you likely expend far more time discerning your coffee table than you do seeing your sofa. See what we're getting at? Choosing the right coffee table is 'absolutely critical'for maximizing your pleasure of the living room experience. That's why the coffee table is integral when creating the focal point of your pride living room.

#1 THE SHAPE
The first thing to consider when selecting the right coffee table is its basic shape. Coffee tables are conventionally either round or rectangular.

Most people know right away whether they're a rectangle or a round coffee table type. Others may have to take a 10 minute Facebook quiz to figure it out.

The key to deciding the shape is considering the rest of your home's decor style. If you're into an industrial, rustic, or Scandinavian style then a rectangular coffee table is likely your perfect bet.

Round coffee tables are best‐matched for modern homes, Space Age retro rooms, and for people who want to be constantly prompted of "When Harry Met Sally" (are we dating ourselves with that reference?).

You also want your coffee table to match the shape of your sofa. Have a sharp, straight‐lined sofa? Go for a rectangular table. Have a sofa with rolled arms and curves? Choose a circle.

#2 THE USE
We know that most people end up using their coffee tables as a drop zone for junk mail, magazines, and candles their mother‐in‐law gifted them 3 years ago.

But also there are so many different types of tables and so many different types of uses for them. If you're a book or magazine lover then contemplate a coffee table with a lower‐shelf.

Hate having your remotes scattered all over your table? Select a table with drawers to remain things hidden away. Are you constantly ice‐old no matter the temperature of the room?

Try using storage ottomans or trunks where you could remain extra throw blankets in lieu of a conventional coffee table. While we're on the subject of ottomans, a really clever trick is to utilize a large ottoman with a portion tray on top to do double duty as a table and as extra seating.

Contemplate the utilize of your coffee table and you'll be able to quickly narrow down your search.

#3 THE SIZE
Your coffee table should be the same height as the seat height of your sofa or about 1‐2 inches shorter.

For instance, a sofa with a seat height of 18"h (like our Delilah Sofa) is best suited to a coffee table between 16"h and 18"h.

Any higher and it will start to obstruct your eye line. Any lower and you're going to be leaning all the way over to pick up your coffee.

This coffee table is the same height as the sofa's seat height

Your 'coffee table' must be 'two thirds' the width of your sofa. When centered this will give an equal amount of space on either side of the coffee table in connection to the sofa.

This allows simply access to the sofa without requiring to do any lunges. A sofa that's 84"w (hey, just like our Delilah!) earns a coffee table that's anywhere between 46"w to 56"w. This leaves around a foot and a half of breathing room on each side of the table.

The depth of the coffee table isn't very important as long as it's not blocking other walking paths. If you have a 2 piece sectional sofa (like our... Brentwood 2pc Sectional) then you may want a 'deeper coffee table' and folks on the end of the chaise could utilize it, too!

#4 COFFEE TABLE POSITIONING
Your coffee table should be about 12" to 18" away from any part of the sofa. This involves the chaise. You'll want the same amount of space between the chaise and the coffee table so that you have a clear pathway to any space of the sofa.

Pressing the coffee table up against the chaise? Bad idea. This rule is especially main for systems with conversation sofas that are facing one another.

It's also important to keep the table about 24" to 30" away from your media stand, credenza, and TV. The same logic applies in this case. You'll want unimpeded pathways between the TV and the table. Otherwise the space will feel incredibly cramped and crowded. It's a total feng shui killer.

#5 THE BLUEPRINT
Begining to see the importance of the coffee table? It's not just a surface to spill your coffee on‐it's also responsible for dictating flow of movement, making proper scale, and fulfilling multiple versatile roles. Good coffee tables that are doing their jobs well often go unnoticed; bad coffee tables ruin a room. Take this advice and you'll be good.
