When we're at home, most of us clock a good amount of time on the couch. So you'd better have a coffee table in front of you that's as good looking as it is useful. And unless you took a risk with a bold, statement sofa, your coffee table can become the focal point of the room, so make it a stylish one. A table you're happy looking at it day in and day out.
