For me, a coffee table is the anchor of a living room. While large furniture and features like windows, sofas, fireplaces and media consoles make a box around the perimeter of a space, a coffee table adds personality, style and substance in the middle. It took me around three years in between getting rid of a DIY coffee table I had made in my early twenties to replacing it with a purchased piece. Three years is really too long to go without a coffee table (for me at least), but I didn’t want to commit to something that I didn’t really like or find interesting.
We’ve seen everything from repurposed carts to DIY pieces to upscale metallic tables on Design*Sponge, and we’ve rounded up some of the most creative and interesting ones. There are so many unique styles out there in every price range. If you need to replace or upgrade your living room anchor, take a look at these great options. –Lauren
