All hail the rebirth of the coffee table!

Your Home - By Michelle Langi | May 29th 2017 at 09:15:35 GMT +0300

The coffee table of yore is out and we hope to never see it back again soon. Modern home décor is seeing the coffee table phased out of living rooms altogether. However, before you hang the towel to follow this trend, we show you how this piece of furniture can be the piece de resistance in your living room. When the right coffee table is used well, it becomes a pivotal element in your living room's design.

Swap it with an ottoman


This is a genius way of filling up that table space while staying different at the same time. Ottomans can be custom made to your preference, colour, shape and size.


A table that is also a sculpture is a plus for your home and a great piece for starting conversations.

Go industrial

  2. 1. #FridayFashionInspo: Juggling nursing, interior design and fashion, Lynn Shazeen is goals

Industrial coffee tables have been around for some time but the classic mix of metal and wood never goes out of style.

Bring in the garden stool

Garden stools have become more popular indoors than in actual gardens. These set of stools bring the outdoor warmth to your living room and can be moved around as opposed to a single bigger table.

Non-traditional top

Rectangle and circular tops are the most common in coffee table design. Unusual shapes like an octagon or an abstract shaped table will make you the envy of the block.

Don't stop at these suggestions, there are more than a million interesting types of coffee tables to replace the good old rectangular table.
