Shop Coffee Tables for Small Spaces at Bassett Furniture

Bigger isn't always better. Sometimes, the smaller, slimmer design option is the way to go. That certainly is the case if your home features cozy, modestly sized rooms. Or if you want to define your open concept floor plan with small, well-defined pockets of functional space.

Whatever design plan you have in mind for your entertainment areas, Bassett Furniture's collection of coffee tables for small spaces has an answer for your stylistic preferences. Shop our extensive online selection of small coffee tables and create your perfect entertainment oasis.

How to Choose A Great Small Coffee Table

There are many decision points when it comes to choosing the right coffee table for your needs. What you decide on as the design anchor of your room plan can influence the style and type of coffee table you want to get.

For example, if you've invested in a grande sectional sofa as the centerpiece of your living room, you may prefer a coffee table that provides a supportive design element. If, on the other hand, your room features a chic, minimalist style, it may benefit from an accent piece that makes a bold statement.

Here are a few additional decision points to consider:

Small Coffee Table Shapes

Small coffee tables come in several shapes, just like their bigger cousins. A square coffee table is a great match for shorter sofas and enclosed seating areas, as it provides equal access to everyone. The same goes for round coffee tables, with the added benefit of being child-friendly – as you don't need to child-proof those dangerous, eye-level sharp corners. Rectangular and oval coffee tables work great with sectionals and longer sofas.

The shape of the small coffee table you need depends on how your space is laid out. Do you have seating all the way around the coffee table? Then a small square coffee table would be best. However, if you're just trying to run the length of a single sofa, a regular rectangular coffee table would be a great fit.



Small Coffee Table Materials

Our selection of small coffee tables offers choices in several materials. The BenchMade line features solid wood coffee tables made from beautiful oaks and maples sourced from the sprawling forests of the mountainous Appalachian region. Several additional collections – including the casually sophisticated Artisinal line and the MODERN line for those with contemporary tastes.

When picking the material for your small coffee table, be mindful of what vibe the material gives off, how it will look next to your sofa, and how it will look in your space overall. For example, a metal coffee table gives off a more modern look than solid hardwood, which is more classic and traditional.

Additional Features

A coffee table can help you organize your living space by providing additional storage space for all those magazines, remote controls, and or drink coasters when they're not in use. A small coffee table with a lower shelf delivers double the surface area while still maintaining a smaller footprint. A bunching coffee table can expand just in time for visitors and provides an artistic touch to your room decor. You'll find all these features and more in Bassett Furniture's diverse selection of small coffee tables.
