These Coffee Tables Will Let You Flex Your Design Skills
Remember how in The Big Lebowski, the Dude (played by Jeff Bridges) makes the case that the rug in his apartment “really tied the room together”? If you do, congratulations, you understand a truly iconic pop culture reference. And if you don’t, well, it’s time to add the cult classic to your streaming queue. At any rate, this isn’t an article about The Big Lebowski or even rugs, for that matter. It’s about the one furniture item we here at Cosmo HQ believe *actually* ties the room together: the coffee table.
You see, the coffee table is the unsung hero of any lounge space. It anchors the room, serving many different purposes at any given time. It’s a dining table. It’s a bar. It’s an ottoman. It’s a workstation. It’s the multitasking queen that doesn’t get nearly enough love, despite all she does for us. We’re on a mission to change that by sharing some of the best coffee tables you should be shopping right now.
Finding a functional coffee table is, of course, key. You want it to get the many jobs it performs done, so something completely ~artsy~ probably doesn’t make the most sense. You also need to consider the items you plan on using to decorate the coffee table in question. Are you stacking magazines and various knick-knacks? Or are you more of a minimalist, meaning one spare candle and a couple drink coasters is good enough? No matter what your design aesthetic may be, there’s a practical-yet-stylish coffee table out there for you. Ahead, check out 20 coffee tables to add to your home redesign wishlist.
These are the best coffee tables for yourself or any design enthusiast in your life. Shop these must-have coffee tables to bring your room together instantly.
