If you’ve been considering updating your interiors, there really never has been a better time than right now. Think about – with no distractions, weekends are the perfect time to browse all the best furniture sites plus you’re saving money on your commute/morning latte/weekly wine night for that big furniture purchase – just as you’ve always said you would. Not to mention you don’t need to worry about securing a coveted weekend delivery slot for your new home arrivals, since going out of the house is *so* 2019.
As we spend more time than ever in our homes, there are a few key items you’ll be looking to update, if you haven’t already. Besides the practical, like an actual desk (not your lap) and an office chair for your new working from home life (both of which are pretty much non-negotiable right now), there are the pieces that aren’t only functional but immediately elevate a room.
One such piece is a stylish coffee table – which we could easily spend hours on Pinterest drooling over. Your living space is a central point of your home; a place to binge watch Netflix, catch up on a Facetime call with loved ones and of course, entertain your friends whenever we next can. So a chic coffee table that will form part of the backdrop to all of this (and so much more) is a pretty solid investment.
How to find the best coffee table?
Whether you’ve been screenshotting Instagrammable living spaces or don’t really know what style will suit your home, finding *the one* when it comes to coffee tables can be pretty tough – especially as you can’t go browse for one IRL right now. So before you get carried away and add a 2 meter table to your bag, get your measuring tape out and understand exactly how much space you have to work with. Designers advise that a coffee table should be roughly two-thirds the length of your sofa, so start with that as a base. Then consider what kind of table will work for your lifestyle – a glass coffee table may look uber chic on screen, but if you have a two-year-old toddler, it’s probably not a good idea.
