Cocktail table? Coffee table? So tell me, what do you call it? By any name, it’s often the center point of a room or seating arrangement, and can make an important statement.
Here, you’ll find a few I’m really loving right now from a variety of sources both retail and to-the-trade.
Next week, we’ll talk about how to go about styling that coffee (or is it cocktail?) table…

An elegant brass table that would be at home in a grand Parisian apartment, but can also stand up to more contemporary elements. More cocktail table than coffee table, don’t you think?
Arbois Glass Top Brass Table by Alfonso Marina
Appropriately named the Bellini table, there is something very Venetian about this table. This table would also work well in both traditional and contemporary environments. I love that it’s not something you’re going to see everyday.
Bellini Table by Julian Chichester
One of my favorite freeform tables. The petite size of this table, and interesting shape make it a good one for more challenging spaces. Whether in front of a smaller sectional or tucked in between a couple of chairs, this table just always works well!
Meadow Table by Arteriors
Almost everyone loves a plexiglass table, but I feel like the waterfall glass or plexiglass tables are getting a bit ubiquitous. This one has some heft to it, but still gives that cool plexiglass vibe which really isn’t ever going to go out of style!

Here is a rectangular version of the same table.
Here’s a great concrete table that’s suitable for the outdoors as well as inside! I love the industrial/utilitarian vibe of this one. The price on this one is great as well!
Concrete Table from West Elm
Another great one from Julian Chicester which is one of my favorite lines. Elegant and sleek, I love the verre eglomisé (fancy french term for gilded mirror) on the bottom shelf, the brass accents, and the beautiful vellum side panels. This one may have to go in my house!
Savoy Table by Julian Chichester
I love round coffee tables in and of themselves, but they are sometimes hard to actually use in a space. They work well with sectionals where each side is of equal length, and they can work between two sofas if the sofas aren’t too long. Round elements are great to warm a space up that on it’s own is very angular so that’s usually when I’ll pull one into service.
Proctor Table from CB2
This banana bark table from MadeGoods is such a great piece. Really kind of a wide rectangle, I love the proportions of it, and the bottom shelf creates opportunity to showcase some great coffee table books. I love that it’s wood, but it’s not the typical wood coffee table you’ll see everywhere.
