Whether you consider yourself a caffeine fiend or not, the coffee table has become a non-negotiable in the modern home. So much more than a simple sofa anchor, it has evolved into the heart of a living room’s conversation pit. It’s a place for drinks to rest post-clinks, and cheese boards and game boards to temporarily call home. Give it fitting acclaim by opting for a vintage coffee table that pairs famously with your other furniture. Not exactly sure what that consists of? Read on for our no-fail coffee table guide.



For those that shun the notion that metallic be reserved for New Year’s Eve, there’s no better choice than a Regency coffee table. Clad in sparkling Lucite, brass, or chrome, these regal vintage coffee tables (or should we say cocktail tables) are an ode to an era of by-gone glamour. Among the most classic Hollywood Regency motifs are the wheat sheaf, the swan, and the ram (or ibex). Look for these motifs to be integrated into brass table bases and play up their shimmer by pairing with glass tops, demure rugs, and low-slung furniture (preferably upholstered in some kind of eye-popping velvet like chartreuse or cheetah).


If the amoebic nature of L.A. swimming pools speaks to you, consider something retro. From the cool-looking kidney bean shape to the biomorphic blob, vintage Mid-Century Modern coffee tables offer up a clean, unfussy look that perfectly complements straight-lined furniture. For something a little less daring, look for Danish Modern designs (which are typically rectangular in shape), or used coffee tables from Scandinavian makers. A favored Scandinavian design showcases an oblong top raised on splayed pencil legs—it’s simplistic perfection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should a coffee table be taller or shorter than the couch?

A coffee table should generally be slightly shorter than the couch. The ideal height for a coffee table is typically between 16 to 18", which is about 1-2 inches lower than the average couch seat height.

Is it better to have a coffee table or not?

Whether to have a coffee table or not depends on personal preference and the available space in the living room. Coffee tables provide a convenient surface and can serve as a centerpiece for the room, but in smaller spaces, they may make the area feel cramped. They are still quite popular and most people have one in their living room to serve as a place to rest a coffee or a tea cup.

What is the rule for the distance between the coffee table and couch?

The general rule for the distance between a coffee table and couch is to leave about 12 to 18 inches of space. This allows for comfortable leg room and ease of movement around the table while still keeping items on the table within reach.

How big should your coffee table be compared to your couch?

A coffee table should typically be about two-thirds the length of your couch. For example, if your couch is 96" long, a coffee table around 64" long would be a good fit. However, the size can vary depending on the available space and layout of the room.
