Every homeowner knows that living room is complete without a coffee table. Where else can you keep drinks, snack platters, or magazines to peruse when you host guests or just hang out with the family? We have mid century coffee tables that are sure to complement nearly any style. Our most popular pieces are the mid century modern coffee tables, with slender tapered legs and functional, minimalistic designs. With a variety of square, round, or more abstract surfaces to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect coffee table for your unique home.
The mid century modern design aesthetic came to light in the middle of the 20th century and offered an alternative to the previous heavy, stocky, and wholly utilitarian furniture styles that had remained in use since about the 19th century. Mid century modern is also known simply as modern and is characterized by minimalist designs that seek to take up less space without losing any function or utilitarian value. A design like this creates an illusion of a more open and spacious room, even for homes that are on the smaller side, while maintaining the useful aspects that inspired people to put the furniture in their homes in the first place. For mid century modern coffee tables, this resulted in thin yet sturdy legs supporting a smooth, flat table surface, but other variations on the mid century modern feel abound.
The mid century modern style generally features a light, neutral color palette to prevent any clashing between the colors of different furniture pieces, as well as any art, photographs, or any decorative accents you may want to spread around the room. But don’t let that stop you from picking a darker or more muted tone for your coffee table - contrasting light and dark shades is a common technique that designers use in order to establish a more organic feel. Plus, we offer a wide selection of colors to choose from, so if you want to make your coffee table the part of the room that lends it a bold splash of color, that’s always a good idea in our opinion.
We offer modern coffee tables in a variety of finishes, from natural wood and wicker that would make the perfect addition to a porch or patio to industrial-style mixed metals and woods (some even on wheels!). Of course, classic wood finishes or glass-top coffee tables can tie together any living room or parlor just as well. Our natural chestnut and oak tables are a great piece to have in any rustic-themed home as well as homes that might be more modern and could use a bit of a contrasting style!
Nearly all of the different finishes also come in a variety of shapes that can fit it any home. Nested mid century coffee tables are ideal for the home who loves to host guests, as the tables can all be tucked away when not in use or taken apart and distributed throughout the home when it’s time for guests to come over. If you’re of the more artistic type, you might enjoy some of our gold accent side tables, or our more modern geometric-shaped and diamond-inspired coffee tables, which come in stainless steel or with a rose gold finish to lend a touch of opulence to your living room - or perhaps you’d like one of chrome and marble tables, with gleaming metal accents and a swirled marble-design tabletop surface.
If you’re looking for a coffee table that offers you more storage options in addition to a spacious tabletop, you’ll be happy to know that many of our modern coffee tables come with seamless drawers or shelving built in for you to store coasters, magazines, or other necessities. Feel free to pick up any of our side tables or cocktail tables to accompany the larger, lower coffee tables if you think you need more storage space.
How would you style your coffee table? Are you the type of homeowner who loves to lounge and put your feet up, or do you prefer to keep the furniture looking spotless? No matter how you want to arrange it, a coffee table is an essential piece of furniture that will tie your whole living room, porch, or other social space together, giving you the space you need to place drinks down as you relax and socialize.
