How do you do your cocktail table?

Today I am hunting for cocktail tables (also known as coffee tables!). For this particular client, we paired two identical full sized sofas (approx 86") on a square rug. The setting is a portion of a great room and for the love of proportions, I am looking at round, square or perhaps two rectangle cocktail tables to keep with the scale and symmetry of the space. Including rectangular tables will make the search much easier because there are a ton more of those to be had! Here's my inspiration:
Two rounds...loving the style....

I think you could achieve the look above with two of these tables from World Market...
Cost Plus Carved Table x2! HERE

Dying for Melanie Turner who did it with two squares here...loving everything she does!

Thom Filicia made it work with two rectangles askew...divine...

One large square could fit the bill.....

What's your cocktail table like? This is motivating me to ditch my old one and try one of these double duties!

  1. I really love the two rounds and the scale of the large square. I love that two smaller tables are easily moved for kiddos, etc. too. The large square is great for cocktails, appetizers and board games. I have a feeling that in my house though, it would be covered with coloring books, toys, kid's half finished artwork and the like though, lol.

    Have a great weekend!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for stopping by and sharing!
