We're always getting questions, and one of our most common is whether you need a coffee table. Ask any interior designer and they'll tell you, function trumps form in every case. Why make a beautiful room if you'll never use it? That's why it's so important to establish how you'll use a space before you begin shopping.

For your living room, you'll likely be watching television, hosting friends, and relaxing with family. It's a room meant to be cozy.

Enter the coffee table. After your seating, it's the most essential piece in your favorite living room because it 'holds drinks', 'your remote', 'reading material', and is a 'place to put‐up your feet'.

Every living room needs one, and we're here to walk you through what you must consider before choosing one.

1. Coffee Table Size
We always use our Room Planner tool to layout a space before shopping, and if you're furnishing your living room, you must begin here.

Your coffee table must be between 14‐18 inches from any placing clustered around it, and definitely no more than '24 inches'. So if you've laid out your floorplan, you must be able to see how large a coffee table you'll need.

For very large living rooms, consider using 'two coffee tables' next to each other. Or if your living room isn't a pass through, you could go even larger.

2. Consider the Shape
Different spaces and layouts call for different shapes, but here's something to think about. For a layout that's more closed off, square or rectangular works ideally.

If your living room is a pass through, and you'll frequently be walking around the coffee table, round works well.

Aesthetically, we like to balance round and square shapes in a space, so if most of your furniture pieces are square (think a sofa with 'tuxedo arms' , 'square fireplace', and square side tables ) , a round coffee table attaches balance.

Alternatively, if you have 'curvy arms' on your furniture, a 'big round mirror', and 'round side tables', a square or rectangle side table works beautifully. It's all about balance.

3. Finish the Room
No room must use the same finish on every surface, so just like with shape, a coffee table could be a way to bring something new into your space. If you have a nubby fabric on your couch or more rustic elements, a glossy or shiny coffee table would contrast that rough texture. Or if you'll be using your living room for TV watching, select a finish that you won't mind putting your feet on, like a slightly weathered wood or an upholstered ottoman.

4. Styling Your Coffee Table
Once you've picked out your coffee table, consider accessories. For a family room where you're watching TV, you'll probably want to leave plenty of space for propping up feet and placing drinks.

A coffee table with a lower shelf works great in these spaces because you could place books and trays underneath, leaving plenty of room on top.

Keep all accessories low, since you want to be able to see over the top of them. Anything too tall would block your line of vision.

Add essentials: reading material, a tissue box, coasters, a box for remotes, a candle, matchbooks, or anything else you'll use frequently could be displayed.

5. Ottomans and Clusters
Now, not every living room has to have a "coffee table" ‐in other words, you could use an
'ottoman', 'pouf, or a cluster of smaller side tables in certain instances.

Here are 10 rooms that don't have coffee tables. The important thing is that you have something in this space for function‐an 'ottoman', 'two or three side tables' grouped together, or a 'taller cocktail height table' could all work depending on how you'll use your seating area.

6. Coffee Tables and Sectionals
If you have a sectional, you may approach your coffee table a bit differently. Many sectionals have a chaise on one or both ends, so you probably won't be putting your feet on the coffee table.

This gives you more opportunity to use glass or metal tables. You could also go a bit smaller here because they'll be less foot traffic and less entertaining.

We talked shape above, and here's an occasion when a 'round coffee table' really works. The square 'edge of the sectional' could create a living room 'feel boxy ', so we like adding in a 'round piece' here.
