Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a coffee table style?

The shape of a coffee table will determine the usage and mood of the space. For example, whether you go with a rectangular or round oak coffee table will depend on the room and interior decor in question.

Rectangular tables can be stunning, especially in contemporary homes. For example, choose a rectangular oak coffee table just over half the length of the sofa, as the set piece of your living room.

Why have a round table? Without edges and corners to maneuver around, these are the best fit for tight spaces. A round oak coffee table is best for a sectional, as they create a sense of space around the area.

An oval shape combines the best of both worlds. They have the grand elegance and working space of a long table, combined with the dexterity of a round one.

How big should my coffee table be? 

The coffee table should be between half and two-thirds the length of your sofa. However, balance this against how your family intends to use the table.

Being so versatile, coffee tables can cater to both larger and smaller areas. Not sure how to match a table with your existing furniture? A handy rule of thumb is to choose a table just over half the length of your sofa, whether the sofa is a standard shape or has a chaise.

For more expansive homes that have room to work with, your table can act as the set piece in a seating area for hosting guests. The larger area means you can opt for a larger table, which can be reached by everyone in the seating area, without feeling like it is dominating the space.

Other parts of the home will need to fit the table into a smaller area. A small, round oak coffee table acting as an end table could be the perfect way to utilise the area. The compact size means you have all the functionality of a table, while keeping a sense of flow in the space.

How high should a coffee table be?

The coffee table's surface should be 40 to 50 cm from the floor. Choosing the right height for your coffee table is a balancing act, between style and ergonomics.

A key consideration is pairing the table with a couch or sofa. There is plenty of flexibility around how high a table can be in relation to your other furniture. It's unlikely you'll ever find that a table is too low! For example, a low, round oak coffee table creates a relaxed mood for hosting guests.

However, keep in mind that you will be using the table from the seating areas around it. The table height should be convenient to access while sitting down or reclining. If you prefer a surface you can work off, choose a light oak coffee table that's higher than the couch. 

What is the best wood for a coffee table?

Teak and oak coffee tables are in style in 2021, with a timeless aesthetic that can complement a variety of interior designs.

An oak coffee table is an effortless way to add grandeur to any room. Few other kinds of woods can balance functionality and style like oak. A light oak coffee table can add texture without overwhelming the space, as oak complements many styles of interior decor. A round oak coffee table fits perfectly into a sectional area, both in terms of decor and in terms of space.

A teak coffee table is a beautiful setting to share food and drinks over, or to hold your books and potplants. From sunrooms to fireplaces, a teak coffee table speaks to natural beauty in a home, with a durability to last the years to come.

What should my coffee table match? 

Done right, a coffee table can be a stunning complement or set-piece within your interior design. Choose a teak or oak coffee table as a naturalistic accent for your interior decor. Otherwise, choose a marble or metal table for a contemporary look.

Wood tables provide warm tones and are easy to match with your interior design. An oak coffee table is equally at home in a living space overflowing with throw rugs and greenery, as it is in minimalist decor. Teak has a natural beauty that's hard to replicate, with a tight grain in golden brown hues that will brighten up any room.

Marble and metal have a timeless elegance that will never go out of style. They are a classy option for contemporary style homes. There are options to match a range of interior designs, from the cosiness of rose gold marble to the luxury of a glossy polished finish.
