Whether you are decorating a new dream home or looking to bring fresh life into your long-time pad, these modern coffee tables have all the brilliant energy you’ll need to feel positively revolutionary—just the thing for the trendsetter in you!
Maybe one of the reasons they’re called coffee tables is that, just like that magical java, you just can’t get along without them! Visually they give a room that extra jolt of energy to make even a ho-hum space feel vital. So consider these modern coffee tables a double shot of espresso: bold, exciting, and maybe just the kick in the butt your living room needs.
Some people find modern design a little intimidating, and we get it! Even with some decades perspective they still feel cutting edge, even avant-garde. We think this is really a strength of this selection because it means you’re not going to fall into old cliches when arranging them in a room.
For truly wild designs with abstract shapes and coloured glass surfaces, we recommend placing them in a room with more subtle textures and pieces. A gorgeous Morroccan-style woven rug in a beige and coal pattern makes a perfect ‘pedestal’ for your new table, while a white leather sofa or sturdy boho-chic canvas-covered armchairs create a homey, comfy feel to the scene. Add a few black and white photography art prints to provide the perfect contrast to the bold centrepiece that is your new coffee table.
Something more low-key, especially a table that uses concrete or the darkly-stained hardwood, looks great with minimalist furniture or the bright colours and jagged edges of a contemporary sculpture. With the latter, pick out a few current art magazines and prints to place on the table and around the room to give your guests a sense of your inspiration.
