Unusual coffee tables

It is the one piece of furniture that often left to very last, or quite often forgotten all together when it comes to living room design. Slowly, slowly as the weeks roll on we begin to notice its absence from our lives when we have no where to put our coffee cup or side plate.

So, to aid the poor coffee table, we have decided to put together an ideabook showing different ideas from rustic to modern to suit every taste. There are no style rules. Everything is allowed and anything goes!

The flying carpet

Flying Carpet Coffee Table

Is the sofa neutral coloured and the floor is made of wood? Especially in a simple environment, a slightly zany coffee table is all the rage! This optical illusion of a carpet from Duffy London  is really special—the shadow hides the legs and looks as though it is really floating! Through the pixelated color play and the slight curvature of the Persian carpet, it always seems as if it were moving. Even those who would otherwise not put something so out there into their homes would agree, that it seems as though you can just jump on and take off into the Arabian sunset.

Stack 'em

This round table with oval discs bears the very appropriate name of Hula Hoop. Due to the different levels the table never seems static and there is plenty of room for magazines, drinks or any knick-knacks!

Three of a kind

In this case, the saying has been changed slightly.. Good, not bad things come in threes! In terms of decoration, it always looks best when an odd number of objects is combined. Different colours, shapes and sizes look great when put together creating both variety and balance.

Transportkiste als Couchtisch

Livinxsten

This former transport box was converted into a coffee table, which is not only super stylish but also very practical! Visually, it feels most at home in a loft area where it can be put to good use, especially where storage space is needed. In addition, you have the opportunity to spontaneously roll the table out when it is needed—for example, to the end of the couch to put your feet up!

ABC

Another idea to add some oomph to your living room are these decorative letter tables, which are available in several colours. A for amazing! However, when the first letter is reminiscent of the ex-boyfriend or mother-in-low, don't stress. The range includes several letters of the alphabet.

Wood meets glass

For all nature lovers of this coffee table is probably just the thing for you. The round glass top is supported by an expansive root, which has been petrified and dried out. A real feature piece, you want this coffee table in direct view—don't cover it with too much. Let it shine!
