Choosing the type of coffee table for your space is not a choice for the decision fatigued. Before you get bogged down in the myriad of choices, keep it simple by choosing the shape you want first. Our designers make a strong case for going round. One of the best reasons to choose a round coffee table is that is provides a lot of contrast to the rectangular furniture in a space. From the sofa to the credenza to the books on the table to the rug on the floor, there can be a lot of rectilinear lines in the living room space so adding a round table can provide just the visual break that the space needs. For some round table inspiration, see below.

Minimalist Coffee Table
With its oversized arms, this sofa needs to be balanced. Matched with airy rattan loungers and a round open table, it feels just right. Via House & Garden U.K.

An oval table is a great choice when you have two matching sofas. A marble Saarinen is perfection. Via Remodelista
