Coffee Tables

The Right Coffee Table Offers Style & Utility

A coffee table is a practical element in your home's living space, offering a surface to place beverages, an area for displaying books and other decorative accents, or a convenient spot to put up your feet while relaxing on the sofa. It can also serve as a major focal point in a living area, anchoring the conversation space and emphasizing the style of the room. Riverbend Home offers traditional, mid-century, farmhouse, contemporary, industrial, modern, and rustic coffee tables in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials to help you achieve the look you're aiming for.

How to Choose a Coffee Table

When choosing a coffee table, you'll need to consider several variables, including its primary purpose, the size it should be, and the style you prefer. Here are some general tips and guidelines for choosing the right coffee table:


First, consider how you'll use the coffee table. Whether you're looking for a functional wood table made to endure daily wear and tear, an ornate glass coffee table that serves as the centerpiece of a formal living room, or a coffee table equal parts decorative and practical, you'll find several options at Riverbend Home. Short on space? Choose a coffee table with storage. Styles configured with drawers allow you to tuck away remotes, magazines, and more for a clutter-free surface; others come with removable lids and offer concealed storage for blankets or to corral kids' toys when guests come over.

Shape & Size

When you imagine a coffee table, you probably think of a square, rectangular, round, or oval shape. But in addition to these common shapes, we offer modern hexagonal and octagonal options as well as asymmetrical mid-century-style coffee tables. Be sure to choose the right size—in any shape—to ensure your room looks balanced and proportional: As a general guideline, a coffee table should be at least half the length of your sofa, and no more than four inches taller or shorter than its seat.


The style of coffee table you choose can make a big impact on the overall aesthetic in your living space. Neutral options that complement most styles of décor, wicker or rattan coffee tables are exceptionally well suited for coastal homes. Look for distressed wood finishes, iron details, and rustic touches in industrial or farmhouse coffee tables, or opt for the clean lines, slim legs, and bold design of a modern coffee table. If you're looking for something totally different, browse coffee tables with a decorative top to add yet another element of style to your space, as well as two- or three-piece coffee table sets to break up and use separately or together, depending on your needs.

Whether you're looking for a statement piece or just a place to prop your feet, find the right design, size, and style for your space in coffee tables at Riverbend Home.
