Every living room should have a coffee table. Coffee tables offer a surface that can be made decorative or functional and there are a ton of sizes, colors, styles for you.

Below we’ll share our top picks for best coffee table styles that will fit your living space.

#1 Lift Top Coffee TablesChristopher-Knight-Home-Lift-top-Wood-Storage-Coffee-Table

A lift-top coffee table is great for small spaces that need storage. The lift top can also act as a work or dining surface. We love this table because it’s neutral enough to fit into any decor style and affordable enough that you’ll have money left to splurge on other things.

The only gripe we have is that most tables that require assembly may not have hinges that line up correctly. It’s best to take your time when assembling this table so that it shuts smoothly. It may even be worth it to pay for assembly services for this particular type of coffee table.

#2 Top and Bottom Shelf Coffee Table


A top and bottom shelf coffee table is great for both small and large spaces. The bottom shelf is great for additional storage either on the surface or in baskets or containers. This table is also a great lightweight option. It’s very affordable and comes already assembled.

#3 Modern Clear Acrylic Coffee Table

#4 Round Coffee Tables

Round top coffee tables are great for bohemian or beach inspired decor. If you’re concerned about sharp edges and corners, you may want to look into a round coffee table style.

#5 Glass Top Coffee Tables

Glass top coffee tables typically include a metal frame bottom. Glass tops are easy to clean and are often very sturdy. We like this geometric design that is great for modern decor.

#6 Coffee Table With Storage Shelves and Drawers
