Coastal Coffee Tables

Updated

What marks out a coastal-style piece of furniture is the use of natural woods with a light or white stain finish along with rattan or wicker. The coastal style isn’t fussy or highly polished, rather it takes its cue from windswept grasses, sand and seashells. The blue of the water and the sky also fit perfectly with this decor style. No matter how far your house is located from the beach, you can create a calming tranquil space by decorating in this beachy style.

Beachy Coffee Table

Lark Manor™

At 50” long and 28” wide, this coastal coffee table gives you a lot of surface area plus storage. Two shelving components are kept private behind doors, while the area between them has two open shelves that are the perfect size for the two rattan baskets included with the table.

Designer Advice:

Solid and manufactured wood is painted a beachy white on this coastal coffee table. The styling of louvered doors and unique door knobs, plus the cut-out bead detailing on the feet are all the best of coastal design, and contrast well with the natural color of the baskets. This coffee table weighs a hefty 119 lbs. Companion tables in the same series can also be purchased.

Designer Advice:

The round shape of this beach-themed coffee table makes it a perfect fit for placing in front of a sectional sofa as the shape gives a little more room to move in the corner of the sectional. Four wood legs hold up the rattan base and allow a two-inch clearance from the floor to the bottom of the table. Choose from a warm caramel-toned rattan or a lighter color called “antique honey”.

Chic Coastal Coffee Table

Beachcrest Home™

An open shelf spans the entire length and width of this chic fir coastal coffee table. The shelf, along with two drawers gives you plenty of storage for the things you want to display and the ones you don’t. 

Designer Advice:

This coastal coffee table doesn’t take itself too seriously with the two decorative seashell appliques and rope handles on each drawer. The beach bum white finish is distressed to allow the natural wood to peek through and give the table an extra casual vibe. Set this coffee table on a natural grass or jute rug or choose a bold white and blue striped rug.

Beachy Rattan Coffee Table

Sand & Stable™

Handcrafted with durable construction, this beachy coffee table is made of plywood with woven banana leaf. A hand-rubbed patina finish gives each table its unique and multi-dimensional look. This table measures 44” long by 26” wide and stands 15.75” high. 

Designer Advice:

We love the yellow cast on this rattan coffee table. It also comes in a darker silvery gray, a white wash finish or a rich orangey-brown. Dark brown wooden feet splay out under the bottom of the table and add contrast to whichever rattan color you choose. If you do choose the sandy yellow option, make sure any beiges you choose for your upholstery also have a yellow, gold, orange or green undertone, rather than a pink one.

Buying Guide

A beautiful coffee table to hold your cups and plates while you relax in front of the TV is a great addition to a living room. With different shapes, sizes and styles to choose from, it can be overwhelming trying to decide which are the best items of furniture for your home. Let's consider some of the available designs for coastal coffee tables and perhaps you'll find the right one for you.

Coffee tables are available with various shapes of tabletop, so before you think about anything else, read about the different shapes and consider which one you think you'd like.

  • Square coffee table: A square table is ideal if you have other square-shaped furniture in the room and want to continue with this trend. Square coffee tables are a great way to ensure each part of the room has an equal amount of the table available.
  • Rounded coffee table: Rounded coffee tables can be less effective when it comes to saving space than square coffee tables since they take up more space than the space which actually benefits you. However, this is a softer shape of table and is suitable for traditional homes or those which are aiming for a warmer effect in the living room.
  • Rectangular coffee tables: If you have a long sofa, a rectangular coffee table is a good choice of shape for the room. This means that rather than having to move the coffee table depending on who is using the sofa and where people are sat, the table is readily available whenever it is needed.
  • Hexagonal tables and other shapes: Although the three shapes above are the most popular ones you'll see, there are others available too. The hexagonal shape doesn't suit everybody's tastes, but it's an option to consider if you want something a little different.

Some of the best materials which are used for the coffee table tops include:

  • Glass: A popular material for many table tops, it's a light effect which is delicate yet elegant and suits a lot of living rooms. Glass is easy to clean too, which is one of the reasons many homeowners choose this material. Glass tops are most often seen on wooden frames and in a rounded style, although they may also be found in hexagonal or other shapes and with a brass or metal border around the table top.
  • Wood: You can find wooden coastal coffee tables which are varnished or glossy, or you can consider the more rustic style which may be made from upcycled wooden planks or hardwood which has been allowed to weather slightly for effect.
  • Glass and wood: A combination of both glass and wood can often be seen when shopping around for coastal coffee tables. This may be a driftwood base for a natural feel, followed by a classy and elegant glass top. Alternatively, you may find glass tables which have a wooden border, or wooden legs which have glass surrounding them for extra gloss and finish.
