Styling tips to consider before buying
Before buying a round coffee table, you need to consider how you want it to look, where you want it to be positioned and what size coffee table you need. To help you make these decisions, you should consider the following questions:
What size should a round coffee table be?
Round coffee tables range between 30 inches to 48 inches wide and 16-21 inches high. The scale of your surrounding furniture will help to determine the right diameter of your new coffee table. Your coffee table should be about two-thirds the width of your sofa. So if your sofa is about 8ft, then a coffee table that is 5ft wide will look most proportionate.
How far should a round coffee table be from the sofa?
You should aim to place your coffee table about 14 to 18 inches away from your sofa.
Is a round coffee table better for small spaces?
Yes, a round coffee table is perfect if you have limited space in your living room. Read on to see our stylish options of round coffee tables with storage, which will take up less floor space.
Modern round coffee table sets
A modern round coffee table set is the perfect addition to any contemporary space. They are also perfect for creating a better flow in the living room, as they do not have sharp corners, and therefore offer freedom to move around the space.
Choosing a set of round tables will also help to create texture, especially if you opt for multi-size tables that can either be placed next to each other, or can be used as side table on either side of your sofa.
To help you choose the right modern round coffee table set, here are some of our top picks:
