Often the anchor of the living room, the coffee table shouldn’t be underestimated nor should it be an unplanned piece of the scheme. Capable of transforming the space, colour, material and shape should be carefully considered for the style they exude. More recently though, it is the height of one’s coffee table – or more specifically the lack of height – that sets them apart from the rest. 

Here, Senior Creative Buyer Jessica Harding reveals a selection of her favourite low lying coffee tables that imbue a sense of modern elegance in the living rooms they reside in.

Dark, square, low coffee table Set of 4 Puro Coffee Tables by Eichholtz.

Set of 4 Puro Coffee Tables by Eichholtz, £2,615

This bold, four-piece Puro coffee table would bring drama to a contemporary living room with plenty of space. With its deep charcoal grey hue, this mahogany wood offers a strong masculine edge and an added bonus of versatility. Layer with books, trays and accessories with a bit of extra height to break up the solid design and create a dynamic centrepiece.

Low, white marble coffee table Donnelly Coffee Table by Bernhardt.

Donnelly Coffee Table by Bernhardt, £6,160

A modern form in a timeless material makes this Donnelly coffee table a contemporary heirloom piece that will last a lifetime. Though solid and box-like in design, the white banswara stone keeps this piece feeling fresh and prevents it from overwhelming the space. Pair with light bouclé seating for a current feel or contrast the angular design with a jewel-toned velvet sofa more for an unexpected look. 

Curved, dark wood, low coffee table Prelude Coffee Table by Eichholtz.

Prelude Coffee Table by Eichholtz, £2,815

Eicholtz’s Prelude coffee table is an example of modern minimalism at its finest. Featuring an oval shaped surface and four staggered round legs, the fluid form of this table is an understated take on the curved furniture trend. As suitable for dark, masculine spaces as it is for bright, playful ones, this table might just become a fan favourite.

Rustic, wooden, low coffee table Jacob Large Coffee Table by Arteriors.

Jacob Large Coffee Table by Arteriors, £2,940

Perfect for a more organic scheme, the Jacob coffee table lies in the cross section of rustic edge and timeless appeal. Sporting a subtle drum-like shape, its round form and tapered edges encourages a natural flow around the room despite its substantial presence. Complete the look with the Jacob side table for a cohesive feel or contrast with worn metal furniture and layers of linen.

Elegant, low, wooden coffee table Contemporary Square Coffee Table by Carpanese Home Italia.

Contemporary Square Coffee Table by Carpanese Home Italia, £7,365

This elegant walnut table proves low-lying furniture need not feel heavy. Boasting delicate golden metal legs and a slim storage drawer, Carpanese Home Italia have created a piece that would suit the sleekest of interiors. Sit it atop a neutral rug and style with carefully chosen coffee table reads and a chic chess board so as not to distract from these refined lines.

Dark wood, low coffee table Morgan Coffee Table by Medea.

Morgan Coffee Table by Medea, £4,310

Celebrating the beauty of wood grain and forms found in nature, the Morgan coffee table by Medea is eye-catching in all the right ways. The low profile and light appearance of this piece brings a sense of openness to the living rooms it resides in. Flatter its warm tones and bronze base with similarly rich materials and colours for a room that feels sumptuous and full of depth.
