There’s more to styling the living room than finding the comfiest sofa to sink into for those lazy afternoons indoors. Equally important is finding a coffee table that serves as the perfect focal point while still providing plenty of room to display your favorite coffee books, scented candles and a cup of tea. Here, we share 7 types of coffee tables to give your living room the stylish upgrade it needs.

Blast from the Past
Mid-century modern coffee tables add the right amount of flair to any room with its angled hairpin legs and sleek table top. A dark mahogany shade offers a beautiful contrast to the pastel seating, drawing attention to the center of the room. Mix it up by placing a gold lamp on top and watch your space light up in retro.
A bright oak coffee table works just as well to give your space a vintage boost, while still keeping up with the times. Go for a longer and narrower table to connect your sectional sofas with each other, with the bonus of extra surface area.
Nesting tables are all the rave lately and it’s easy to see why. Apart from providing depth and dimension to your living room, you get the added flexibility of being able to adjust your tables around.
