Some ideas are so deep-rooted in our minds that we don’t even think twice or consider alternatives for them. For instance, when furnishing a living room, it’s a given to have a coffee table somewhere at the center of the whole setting. But what if you were to rethink this idea and choose instead of give up the table altogether and to fill the space with something else or to have two or more coffee tables instead of just one?
Actually, a pair of coffee tables can be a viable option for seating areas that are simply too large for a single coffee table. A large and curved sectional such as this one forms a wide gap in front of it which can be filled in a functional and stylish manner by two or even three tables.
Coffee table clusters also work well for social spaces which are organized using a diversity of seating options such as one or two small sofas combined with armchairs, poufs and ottomans.
When you have a set of coffee tables instead of just one, it becomes easier to organize the space and to make everything comfortable. Consider dividing a large coffee table into several equal sections and opting for several small ones instead. This way you’ll be able to distribute them each as needed or to keep them together depending on the occasion.
Diversity is good even when the space is small. A seating area with a single sofa and maybe even an accent chair or two could use two or perhaps even three coffee tables. Actually, a combination between a coffee table and a side table seems to be just right in this case. Think outside the box to find the best design solution for the space.
You never know when you’re going to need a little bit of extra table space in your living room but that’s not the only reason why coffee table clusters are a great idea. You should also consider the aesthetic appeal of such a decor. Just look how cute this duo is. How could you ever keep them apart from each other?
It could also be useful to have coffee and side tables with different heights in order to accommodate various needs and to make each person comfortable. Not all situations and contexts require the same combination of furniture pieces or the same accessories.
There are a lot of interesting and elegant ways in which you can pair two or more coffee tables. One idea is to put together tables with similar designs, made from the same material but with slightly different characteristics such as different colors, finishes or dimensions.
