Whether you’ve got €100 or €1,000, you’re sure to fall for one of the eleven coffee tables in our design edit.
Unlike almost anything else in your house, a coffee table has to sit in the middle of the room and therefore needs to look good from every angle. They can also quickly become dumping grounds too, for pens and bits of the Sunday papers, coins and the odd emptied battery.
Clear up and clear out the debris with the help of an incredibly chic coffee table from our edit.

Caryllon coffee table, price on request, The Design Seeker
Available with a green or blue wooden inlay top, there’s a wonderful playfulness to the Caryllon coffee table. Its curved shape and closeness to the floor hark back to its design inspiration — the daisy.
Aula, around €330, Made
This table nest is giving us serious 1970s vibes in the best way. Coupled with a burnt orange sofa it’s majorly retro, but swap the furnishings out for a more natural palette and the steel and glass design will elevate the space with a sophisticated calm.
XL table, €466, Nest
For something a little more understated, the sanded oak material of this circular coffee table is lifted by its angular legs and cut-out elements.
