Naturally, the first criteria for choosing coffee tables should be the overall décor of the room. Décors can be broadly classified as Classical, Chic, Retro, Modern etc. A classic décor will probably be Victorian era heavy and ornate furniture, lots of wood and lots of pink cloth. An ornate, curved leg dark wood coffee table will be perfect in that setting. Totally opposite to classic, we have modern, which is lighter furniture, white wood or steel and glass pieces.
Storage and portability is also another issue you might like to keep in mind while selecting coffee tables. Most couples and professional today live in compact apartments and relocate when necessary. Tables that can be taken apart are great to pack away. However, if you do not fancy DIY, you can go for a folding or partially detachable table. This way you can store or move the coffee table without taking it apart.
While you can always look through catalogues and branded furniture shops, it is definitely much more interesting to keep your options open and hunt in other places as well. For instance, auctions, antique shops and sales, yard sales etc can come up with unique items with character and history to add to your décor. They might even be within your budget.
