12 Coffee Tables That Are Way Too Pretty to Put Your Feet On

Seriously, what are we? Animals? These coffee tables demand the respect they deserve.

By Angela Law

Without a coffee table, you don’t really have a living room — you kind of just have some couches lying around.

Think about it: A coffee table can tie an entire room together. It can set the mood, look, and vibe of the room where you probably spend most of your awake hours (outside of work). It is an essential part of your home! 

And yet, I have been in too many abodes where the coffee table is just an afterthought. It’s a surface to put stuff one. Who cares? I do! And you should as well.

A coffee table is not just a place where you rest take-out during a Vanderpump Rules binge. It’s not a mere recipient of your mail, beverages, and feet. A coffee table is very much the focal point of a living room. Like light to a moth, it’s what people know to congregate around.

A coffee table can, and should, be a conversation piece in and of itself. Have some fun! Express yourself! Find and invest in a nice coffee table that actually represents you and your home.

Here is a collection of styles that we absolutely love.

Mid Century Modern Retro Wood Coffee Occasional Table

This coffee table does double duty as a magazine rack, which makes it perfect for smaller spaces. Alny display of design-meets-function is a huge plus in our book.

Spoke Glass Coffee Table

You can get this coffee table in either a glass or a marble top (for only $100 difference). Both say: "sleek," "modern," and "elegant."

Mimico Coffee table

Not only does this coffee table look cool, it is made with unique antibacterial finishes that allow for easy cleaning. A glass table that is easy to clean? Sign. Us. Up.

Trip Cartoon Square Table

What is life if you can’t have a little fun? This playful take on a classic mirror design is pure genius.

Modern Tempered Glass Coffee Table

Made from a single piece of bent semi-tempered glass, this coffee table is perfect for a home that is trying to convey both fun and modernism.

Origami Coffee Table

If you can’t afford (or don’t really care to pay so much for) marble, West Elm makes this spectacular coffee table using natural bone tile. We love the heavy top paired with the delicacy of the origami-inspired bottom.

Geometric Coffee Table

We like the origami effect so much, we also found it in glass and gold.

Walnut Base Noguchi Coffee Table

Originally commissioned by the president of the Museum of Modern Art, this Herman Miller piece is a classic that will have all your fancy design friends ooh-ing and ah-ing.

Scalinatella Cocktail Table

The base is made from a single brass tube — how’s that for a conversation starter? The addition of a solid piece of marble on top is just the perfect way to scream “baller." In the most elegant of ways, of course.

Gubi Pedera

This coffee table is literally a piece of art. It was designed in 1955 by Barba Corsini as part of his reimagining of Antoni Gaudi´s famous “La Pedrera” building in Barcelona. If we catch your feet on this ...

Pink Quartz Lirit Coffee Table

If you believe in the power of crystals, this is the piece for you. Pink quartz is known to nurture determination, commitment, and caring, as well as soothe feelings of anger and resentment. Can you even put a price tag on that? Well, they did. And it’s a little hefty. But you can’t deny that this coffee table (all hippiness aside) is absolutely gorgeous.

Colina Coffee Table

We love this coffee table because it makes a bold statement without overtaking the entire room.
