Coffee tables with space below are not only useful, they make it easy to throw down a chic display. If you have a layered coffee table, try organizing coffee table books or a pile of magazines into tidy stacks, or adding candles. So simple, so stylish.

A cushioned bench or upholstered coffee table can be unexpected and compelling. A tray makes it easy to stash items on top.

Extra Seating

Make like a mini dining table with a few floor pillows tucked beneath a simple coffee table – it looks fun and casual, and you’ll always have extra seating on hand.
