How big of a coffee table should I get?

The typical size for a rectangular coffee table is around 120cm by 60cm. Of course, the right size for your space depends on the room itself and what you plan on using the table for.

Here’s a good rule of thumb to guide you in the right direction: Choose coffee table designs that are roughly two-thirds the size of your largest couch. Centre the table in front of the couch to ensure there is plenty of room on either side.

Can a coffee table be higher than the couch?

Yes. However, interior designers recommend opting for a coffee table that’s as close to the height of your couch cushions as possible – or within about 10 cm of that level.

How far should a coffee table be from the couch?

Positioning your modern coffee table is critical. Too close, and you won’t be able to move around your living room. Too far, and your drinks, snacks, book, magazine, phone, etc. will be out of reach. Ideally, situate your coffee table about 35 cm to 45 cm from your couch.
