Picking a coffee table is not as easy as you might think. It’s not just a piece of furniture that stands in front of your sofa. So, before you make a decision, you have to think about things like shape, size, material, color, function and many others. The shape of the coffee table can be dictated by a number of things.
The coffee table can blend in so if you have a sofa with rounded edges and curved lines, a table that shapes the same characteristics would fir right in. if the rest of the décor is linear, simple and focused on clean shapes and lines then perhaps a square or a rectangular coffee table would be a nice choice. Square coffee tables are particularly versatile because they suit a variety of styles and decors.
A square coffee table is perfect for a space that only has armchairs placed around it or where there’s a small, two-seater sofa and some extra seats. It also works well when combined with sectionals. Things are a bit more difficult in the case of long sofas or sectionals. A square coffee table may look out of place in such a setting but not if it has the right proportions.
