Live-edge coffee tables also bring along with them a certain sense of uniqueness, and if you are lucky enough to have a live-edge dining table that is part of the living room visual, then it seems even more appealing! Bringing balance and warmth to the living room on some occasions and offering contrast and creative dazzle at others, here is a roundup of the best live-edge coffee tables around.
Consider your ideal coffee table‘s size. If the table is to sit in front of the sofa, it should be no longer than two-thirds the length of the sofa. Generally, coffee tables are between 15 to 20 inches tall, so make sure the height of the table matches the height of your sofa as well. In terms of visual space, if you‘re placing the table in a small room then you may want to consider a glass coffee table. Because it‘s transparent, it won‘t feel as bulky as a solid wood table. If the room is large, then you may prefer a more dominant piece.
Tufted leather coffee tables are quickly becoming a hot trend in modern homes, and they fit in perfectly with diverse themes and styles. Leather is a surface that is easy to maintain and clean when compared to many other alternatives and is also far sturdier. Just keep the coffee table away from extreme heat and cold, and it should age beautifully over time. That is one of the great advantages of picking leather decor, as it seems to only get better with age. Plush leather ottomans that do double duty as coffee tables also bring an additional texture to the living room that stands in contrast to the usual glass, stone and concrete.
We‘re big fans of vintage and retro furnishings here at Decoist, so we‘re featuring a few 1stdibs finds in today‘s post, such as this Tessellated Stone Coffee Table from 1stdibs dealer Carol Master Antiques.

This Etched Granite Coffee Table from West Elm is constructed from a solid granite top and a metal base. And while this Modern Granite Coffee Table from 1stdibs dealer Bardin Palomo has the potential to look like a big hunk of granite, the rounded corners, cruciform base and substantial brass trim give it an elegant look. Yay for brass.
