Coffee/ Cocktail Tables: The coffee, or cocktail table, is probably the most functional of the bunch. It is a low table typically placed in front of a sofa where magazines can be placed and coffee or cocktails served. Here, the general rule of thumb is that you should look for a table that is at or about the same height as your sofa or chair seat cushion, but no more than an inch or two shorter as you do not want it to be difficult or uncomfortable for your guests to reach. Another current design trend is to opt for the oversized ottoman as coffee table. By placing a tray on top of an oversized ottoman, you create a more stable surface and an attractive focal point.
Probably your preference runs a lot more toward modern design. Take into consideration clear or colored glass tabletops, geometric bases in steel, fiberglass, or high-end plastics, solid or open structure dices and also rectangles in wood or stone. The curvilinear forms and also the colorful laminate surface areas that you see in mid-century Modern furniture-think "The Jetsons"-can be charming and include wayward heat to a modern layout that may risk of being also chilly.
