Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
Most coffee tables are designed with drawers for convenient storing and organizing. Some drawers come with locks for privacy and safety. Some coffee tables have matching sofas or settees that are relatively cheaper than buying them separately. Other interesting features that some coffee tables have are removable glass tops. This allows homeowners to remove the glass top, arrange photos or artwork on the table and put the glass back on the tabletop to protect them. Some coffee tables have a compartment under the glass top and this is great as small, decorative items can be arranged in it. For example, pebbles can be arranged in it to achieve the Zen look.
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.
