Don't forget to measure how high your coffee tables should be as well. Generally, the height should be same or a little bit higher than the sofa seats it will complement. Seat down on your sofa and measure the height from the floor to the top of your bended knee. These tables should be either that high or an inch more or less, if you can't manage that. Too high and it will become an eye sore, too low and your guests will tumble out of the seat to use it.
There are a variety of things you can do with a lift top coffee table.

Using your laptop in the living room has never been more comfortable than with a lift top coffee table. Instead of bending over to type you can simply adjust your lift top coffee table so that your computer is at the perfect typing height.

The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. They've got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
