Arranging Living Room FurnitureConsider your ideal coffee table’s size. If the table is to sit in front of the sofa, it should be no longer than two-thirds the length of the sofa. Generally, coffee tables are between 15 to 20 inches tall, so make sure the height of the table matches the height of your sofa as well.
Lastly, remember that, whether intentional or not, your coffee table will also act as a display space. Anything seated upon this table will become part of the décor of the room – so, be sure to keep it clean and tidy. If you and your family have a tendency to pile on the clutter, you may want to invest in a coffee table with storage.
