For propping up your feet, displaying beautiful books, or resting coffee cups and glasses of wine, a modern coffee table has a place in every room. Our new-in contemporary coffee tables join the styles we already carry, including our most popular models that look great in any living space.
COFFEE TABLE MATERIALS; WOOD, GLASS, OR METAL?
More than just a utilitarian addition to your room, a coffee table is as much a part of the décor as aor your choice of artwork. The Habitat collection combines functionality with our signature attention to detail and remarkable design. Our coffee tables come in a range of different materials, so there’s plenty to consider.
First up is the classic; wooden coffee tables have been part of living room set ups for years. A dark wood option such as a walnut table is perfect for a retro themed room, while oak is perhaps a better choice for a more modern look (think Scandi minimalism). Our wooden tables often come with history and heritage in mind, with a modern twist.
A more contemporary choice is a glass coffee table. These are favourites for smaller spaces because they don’t obstruct light, meaning they keep the space airy and open. Glass is also a great surface for a modern penthouse or apartment; the rolling curves of something like Gala are perfect for current living spaces.
If you prefer the industrial look, a metal coffee table might be your best bet. Choose from sturdy options which take centre stage, or more refined options that work more discreetly in the background. Many of our tables combine multiple materials for a truly distinctive look; Nestor features black metal legs finished with a marble base. Options like Tilda and Herrmann blend wood with glass for a statement piece.

ROUND, RECTANGLE, OR SQUARE?
You’ll already have an idea of the material you want, but what about shape? If you’re working with a tight space, say a small living room corner, you might need to opt for a square coffee table. For the middle of a room or across the front of a window, a rectangular table might work better.
And don’t discount a round coffee table. For modern spaces, or smaller areas that need something to tie everything together, a circular choice could be the one to go for. Something like Orrico, with its hammered aluminium body, is a perfect round statement coffee table.
STORAGE COFFEE TABLES
Coffee tables aren’t always just for resting things on – they can be masters of disguise too. Ideal for when your square footage is minimal, a storage coffee table works with you to keep the clutter out of sight.
If you want something traditional, the sleek sliding drawers of Enzo are ideal. Max can keep your paperwork, magazines and books neatly stacked beneath its oak surface. And for a truly cunning hideaway, Bert features a removable lid, allowing you to stash your belongings within.
BUYING A COFFEE TABLE ONLINE
Before you buy your coffee table, you need to ensure you’ve measured up your space. Ideally, you’ll want to leave at least a 2-foot gap between the table and any other furniture. While it might be a statement purchase that takes centre stage, you should also ensure your table isn’t too overpowering. A rough rule of thumb to follow is that the table should be around half to two thirds the length of your sofa – and around the same height as your sofa’s cushions.
Each product page has plenty of information about that item, including dimensions and care instructions. You’ll also find images to help you make your decision, including shots of the table in a styled living environment.
Once you’ve settled on ‘the one’, follow our secure checkout process and place your order. From there, we’ll be in touch and you can book a delivery slot. That way you’ll know your table will be turning up when it’s convenient for you. Delivery timescales vary depending on the product, but some can be delivered within days.
Once it arrives, we’ll take the table to a room of your choice, and it’s yours to style as you wish. It’ll probably be a surface for a cuppa and some reading matter for those cosy afternoons in, but we’re all about adding little trinkets to style it your way. Ablooming with fresh flowers is welcome on any coffee table, and ornaments or free-standing are personal touches.
So, browse our coffee tables, make your choice, and get the kettle on… You’ll soon have your feet up.
