The standard height of a coffee table is between 16 - 18 inches, but some can be as high as 21 inches. How do you know which height to choose?
The size of your coffee table should work with your sofa and other furniture in your room. It should also work with the size of the room overall. Let's check this out.
How do you feel about the coffee table choice in this lovely room? I would like to see something longer (remember the 2/3 the length of the sofa rule). This little beauty is having a difficult time holding her own with this sofa.
Don’t forget the size of the room when thinking about scale. Glass tables work well in smaller rooms because they give the impression of lightness - space is not blocked out.
Even with two tables this room does not look over furnished.
If your room is spacious and/or the furniture is large in scale, choose heavier wood tables or ones with lots of tiers or drawers.
This is a beautiful room with a colour scheme I'm partial to. Does the coffee table work for you? I wouldn't want to try to place something on the table while sitting. I'm such a stickler for function!
