Few places does form meet function more powerfully than in the family coffee table. They’re at the center of our living spaces, so we need them to look good. But they’re also at the center of the spaces in which we live our lives, so we need them to do some serious heavy lifting too. Whether they’re the workspace for your kids’ latest art project, a serving table for your big game appetizer spread, or just the place you plop your coffee for your next Netflix marathon, we’ve got a list of the hottest coffee table styles for your home.
1 – Nesting Coffee Tables
A nesting coffee table can be a cool look, but it can pack a lot of function as well. Particularly useful for larger seating areas, the ability to pull out more table space and move it around the room where you need it is key for a livable family space. We love this wooden look with its no-nonsense hardwearing finish and easy to manipulate nesting tables.
2 – Stone Top
There’s a reason we’re putting stone on our kitchen and bathroom counters, and that is that it has incredible endurance capabilities. Whether your kids get a little overzealous with their crayons, or your husband gets a little overzealous with his cola when his favorite player hits the end zone, this is a coffee table top that will take a beating without blinking an eye. The great news is, on top of the incredible function it offers, stone top coffee tables look gorgeous in almost any setting.
