When choosing a coffee table for your space, it’s just as important to consider function as it is to consider form. To create a cohesive living room, you’ll need to consider elements such as scale and proportion to find the perfect piece. Savoir Flair tapped Carol Sukkar of Dubai’s Blanc D’Ivoire, a luxury home interior store specializing in ‘transforming houses into homes’, for hints to help you choose the right coffee table for your living room.

Be sure to measure the height of your sofa or chairs that will be adjacent to the table. You don’t want the table to tower over the rest of the furniture.
Ensure there is a contrast between the color of the sofa and the coffee table so that it really stands out.
For families with young children, be sure to opt for circular coffee tables – this will make it safer, as there won’t be any sharp edges.
Make sure the space between the table and the sofa is not too small, which could restrict movement.
For small spaces, it’s best to opt for smaller tables placed together for ease of re-arrangement when entertaining.
