SECRET SAUCE: When I am looking for a new piece of furniture, I do a LOT of research. I know it may be overkill, but I really want to make the most informed decision possible when I am shopping and not rush into big purchases before knowing what’s on the market. In preparing to write this post, I researched literally hundreds of coffee tables and selected my top twelve coffee tables available on the market right now based on functionality, aesthetics, and average customer reviews (where available).
But first, let’s start with the coffee table that we ultimately bought. Jeff and I decided to go classic and bought this coffee table from CB2. It has a marble top, antiqued silver base, and is really timeless.
So, how did we pick this one? We both needed to make compromises.
I really wanted a round or oval marble table and Jeff wanted a rectangular table with a metal base and wood top. How did we compromise? Marble top, rectangular shape, and metal base. Although in my search I was gravitating towards black tables, our living room is fairly small and I am happy we went with table that has a smaller footprint and looks more airy. A black table would likely have overwhelmed the room in addition to the black fireplace. Marble keeps the table timeless, while the metal base and slightly unusual frame makes it feel fresh. This coffee table is a modern classic that I bet CB2 will continue to carry for a long time. Also, compared to the other marble tables that I saw on the market, this one is much less expensive.
