Have you ever seen a large comfy sofa paired with a delicate dainty coffee table? It’s just not quite right. Or a coffee table so tall it covers half of the sofa? When picking a coffee table with your sofa or sectional, there are just a few helpful tips to keep in mind.
1.) Generally, you coffee table should be about 2/3 the length of the sofa
2.) A regular coffee table height should be about 16-18 inches. Keep in mind if you entertain regularly it might be helpful to have a higher coffee table so your guests will have an easier time setting down drinks. However, make sure your coffee table is about the same height or about 1 to 2 inches lower than the seat height of your sofa. So if you have a higher sofa, 20-21 inches in height, your coffee table will be a little higher.
3.) Most importantly, keep your coffee table & sofa to scale, meaning your furniture should be of equal weight and size.
