Before anything else, let’s talk numbers. Having a single coffee table is definitely the norm but that doesn’t mean it’s the only option. In certain cases it’s more practical to have several small tables instead of a single large one. This gives more flexibility and can also look nice. This right here is a set of two nesting tables with very similar designs and shapes but with different proportions. The smaller table can fit underneath the larger one for easy storage. They’re both made out of MDF panels and bamboo legs. They’re durable and good-looking as well as very convenient. The small table measures 17.7(L) x 11.6(W) x 15.7(H) and the large one measures 23.6(L) x 15.5(W) x 17.7(H).

Glass coffee tables can definitely be great but can often come across as outdated. The design is especially important in this case. Unless you want some very minimalistic, an all-glass coffee table is probably not your best option. Combining glass with other materials often looks wonderful and creates a very balanced look. This right here is a very stylish example. This table is made of solid MDF and glass. The top is clear and has beveled edges and the bottom shelf has an opaque finish.

This U-shaped design has a very nice continuity and fluidity and the lack of any storage shelves, hardware or connectors allows the focus to be on the shape alone. At the same time, this is a coffee table that won’t stand out which means that the room’s focal point can be something else. It looks lovely when paired with a cool-looking area rug.
