The Best Minimalist Coffee Tables

Today we’ve rounded up pieces from the best furniture brands (and their online catalogs) to find the best minimalist coffee tables. Here’s what we looked for:

Top-notch materials: the best minimalist coffee tables feature sturdy materials that complement your space. While most will prefer wooden pieces due to their warm color tones and budget-friendly price tags, others might pick stone top coffee tables with travertine or marble to complement their hardwood floors.

Coffee tables, in general, need to measure two-third of your sofa’s length and stand 12-18 inches away from your couch. The furniture’s proportions need to comply with these basic interior design standards and fit into the overall minimalist theme in your room.

Highly functional: coffee tables represent convenience, while minimalism is all about functionality and practicality. The best minimalist coffee tables need to embody all of these concepts and actively make your life easier every time you sit on your couch.
