Top 10 coffee table designs that are the ultimate pick-me-ups your living room needs

I believe the secret to a great living room is an excellent coffee table. Coffee tables act as the centerpiece of a living room, so you need to choose one that really livens it up and sets the tone. And once the perfect coffee table is set, you can build the rest of the room around it – a comfortable sofa, cute side tables, exquisite lighting, elegant decorative pieces. They are all brought together by the right coffee table! And even coffee tables are becoming more innovative, unique and well-made every day! From a quirky red cuboid coffee table that effortlessly stores your books and magazines, to a coffee table that includes an electric fireplace and is the ultimate winter essential, these exquisite coffee table designs are all you need to complete your living room to bring together and meet your facility goals!

1. The booklet

Conceived as a “coffee book table”, the Bookpet is a visually stunning coffee table that also doubles as an excellent storage space for your books and magazines. It shows a sculptural form that arises from a double-curved cuboid.

Why is it remarkable?

The cuboid shape of the furniture allows for a stable table top at one end, which acts as the coffee table part of the design. In contrast, the rest of the piece has been integrated with small slots and corners that can perfectly accommodate your favorite books and magazines. Bookpet has a compact and space-saving size, making it ideal for small homes and modern apartments with space constraints.

what we like

  • Compact + space-saving design
  • It looks like a dachshund!

2. Wormhole Coffee Table

Wormholes can hypothetically connect two different points in space-time via a tunnel. And they’re pretty common in science fiction! And this stunning coffee table by Olivier Gomis attempts to turn the hypothetical wormhole into a physical manifestation.

Why is it remarkable?

The shape of a table alone is a real eye-catcher. It’s almost like a plank of wood that has been bent so that the two ends are on top of each other and then joined together by a bicone. These are then glued with sheets of maple veneer in between, giving the appearance of those faint lines of light that form the trellis.

what we like

  • A lamp has been installed in the center of the hole, giving the table an eerie look in the dark

What we don’t like

  • You’ll probably want to keep things away from the part of the table that curves down

3. Table by Duffy London


The latest addition to the Abyss Horizon collection, this beautiful coffee table will make you feel like you’re walking down a water rabbit hole! It also gives the impression that it is floating freely above the floor of your home. It has a deep turquoise color that features intersecting and playful lines, colors and shapes!

Why is it remarkable?

The coffee table also has three curved legs to support the surface, while its contoured base looks like it actually digs deep into your floor. The clean edges of the table also enhance your view of the aquatic chasm and let you focus on the sinkhole in the middle. Imagine looking at all the different ways we see the colors of the ocean differently at different depths of water. But this time it’s right in front of you at your table.

what we like

  • There are only 25 handmade pieces

4. The Orbit coffee table


The Orbit coffee table features multicolored and interlocking legs. The design takes inspiration from the orbits of space for the table legs. If you compare the coffee table to the pictures you’ve seen in your school books of planets orbiting the sun, you’ll find that they’re actually quite similar!

Why is it remarkable?

The coffee table features a round glass tabletop supported by three oscillating metal tubes. The tubes are intertwined in an interesting way, creating an intriguing visual web that is further enhanced by giving each of them a different colour. Aktay gave the tubes separate colors to give each element a sense of individuality and to clearly differentiate them from one another. This ensures that we thoroughly perceive and appreciate the unique construction of the table.

what we like

  • Inspired by orbits in space

What we don’t like

5. The Dune Table


This beautiful center table concept is designed to bring people a sense of peace – with the help of loose sand. You don’t have to visit a beach or travel to a desert to enjoy this feeling, you can now do it from the comfort of your home with the Dune table!

Why is it remarkable?

The Dune table’s name clarifies its inspiration, which may not be immediately apparent from its shape alone. In contrast to a gently sloping dune, the base of the table rises and falls in an almost random pattern. This creates shapes, edges and corners that would not normally be possible with natural dunes. However, along with its blue hue, it gives the table an almost mystical and otherworldly character that only adds to its calming visual appeal.

what we like

  • The tabletop also follows this amorphous design, forming an irregular shape rather than a typical circle or ellipse. It gives a perfect view of the artificial dune below and fulfills both functional and aesthetic roles

What we don’t like

6. The wait


This multifunctional piece of furniture called Wait features a horizontal wooden top that connects a wave-like shape, giving it a sense of dynamism and free-flowing movement. The coffee table/bench lies in wait, ready to spring into action.

Why is it remarkable?

The dynamism is also reflected in the use of the furniture. It takes very little to change the function of the piece; Simply removing one or both cushions reveals the surface that can be used as a table top. You don’t even have to stick to one mode or the other as getting out of a pillow creates a half and a half that serves both purposes.

what we like

  • Multifunctional piece of furniture
  • Excellent option for storage space in tiny apartments

What we don’t like

7. The circus coffee table


Much like its name, the Circus coffee table is an intriguing concept designed to bring people together in an active, interactive and chaotic way. Unlike traditional coffee tables, the circus coffee table is quite high and can be used as a regular desk when needed.

Why is it remarkable?

The jumble of shapes and materials on the table appears almost chaotic, like in a circus. They have a predominantly wooden table with metal components that add functionality to the table. The large circular hole in the center turns the disc into a donut, revealing two triangular shapes that form the table legs. Instead of a solid cylindrical base, the table has metal rods and doors on opposite sides, creating further design contrasts.

what we like

  • Designed to be the center of attraction
  • Can also function as a regular desk

What we don’t like

  • Some people might not like the unconventionality of the design

8. The fabric coffee table


The Cloth coffee table features a curved book stand that acts as the centerpiece of the table. The table’s rather curvy personality is evident in its bulky boldness. The coffee table strikes a perfect balance between bold and elegant, beautifully integrating soft and loud elements.

Why is it remarkable?

Minimalism before it was cool, Japanese and Scandinavians share many common design principles, including a focus on warmth, down-to-earthness, and a muted color scheme for an overall calming effect. Aiming to fuse these principles to design fabric, Teixeira hoped to find a “balance between boldness and elegance, depending on the angle”.

what we like

  • An artful blend of Japanese and Scandinavian design philosophy
  • The curved book stand is a distinguishing feature

What we don’t like

9. The REVERSE table


The REVERSE coffee table is not just a coffee table, it also functions as a side table. You can reuse the same base and table top to switch between the two types of tables.

Why is it remarkable?

The only thing that changes is the middle support structure, which determines how high the table can be. Simply reverse its orientation and you can either raise or lower the table and switch between its two functions. The only caveat is that in both situations the height of the table appears to be fixed, without the table top being able to be raised or lowered slightly.

what we like

  • Can also be used as a coffee table and side table

What we don’t like

  • Switching between the two modes can be complex and time consuming

10. Stove


This innovative coffee table, named Hearth, looks like a traditional and stylish table at first glance. But if you examine it more closely, you realize that it brings a modern touch to a fairly old household appliance.

Why is it remarkable?

In its dormant state, it already acts as a beautiful centerpiece for people to congregate around, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Turn this tabletop clockwise like a giant clock face and the sloping ribs at the base open up to reveal the electric heater inside.

what we like

  • Multifunctional design
  • Works as a beautiful centerpiece to warm your home
