Scale & Size. Firstly, the scale of the table is probably the most important factor, the table will anchor the room, and if it's too big or too small, then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size, if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space, if there is a square space between a set of sofa's such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge, then you could go for square, round or oversized rectangle.
The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it, possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee, choose a small, simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines, flower vase, bowl, etc., then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells, stones, photos, etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space, choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes, which usually is stored underneath one another, and occasionally, when the situation requires, all three tables can be used.
Round and Rectangular Coffee Tables. Lastly, a coffee table regardless of any material or color does come in many shapes. The most popular shapes are rectangular and round. Choosing a table's shape should depend on the amount of space in the room, suitability of the shape to the other furniture, and/or whether or not you have young kids at home who might accidentally bump onto rectangular table edges.
Glass Coffee Tables. You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
