Offering a place to rest one's magazines, books, cocktails and, occasionally, feet, coffee tables are an essential component of any seating or lounging configuration. They complete a conversational area by encouraging people to gather around and chat. Take a look a some of my favorites:
The George cocktail table from Oly (above) comes in two sizes 60" and 66". While it's quite large in size, it's light in appearance. The top can be ordered in dark or white eggshell or in high gloss.
Bo-Concept's high-luster tables bring contrast to traditional living rooms.
West Elm's new coffee tables provide space to showcase your favorite items.
The Dutch industrial coffee table from Restoration Hardware offers plenty of storage and cool caster wheels.
The Bryce coffee table has clean lines and a warm wood grain, making it a modern and versatile addition to any seating area.
A classic from Crate and Barrel: the Clairemont Coffee Table.
Love this original and functional crate coffee table from South of Market.
