Mid-Century Modern Coffee Tables - Modern Coffee Tables
An unmistakably sophisticated addition in any setting, a Mid-century modern coffee table is a must-have in living rooms looking to project an impeccably warm and welcoming retro vibe. Known for their clean lines, minimal details and cool, timeless appearance, you’ll find an array of hand-built and consciously curated Mid-century modern coffee tables at Joybird in sizes and styles to fit any room. These versatile pieces of furniture not only provide a handy spot for storing necessities, they are an effortless way to create a focal point to your room that grounds your sofa, chairs and other décor.
The key to selecting your perfect Atomic Era modern coffee table is to look at your existing furniture, especially your sofa
, and pick a living room table that fits your space without overwhelming your room. If you have a classic three-seater sofa or a longer four-seater sofa, your best bet is a long, rectangular coffee table. This gives everyone seated easy access to a place to hold drinks, reading materials and more. L-shaped or chaise lounge sectionals usually work best with a round or square coffee table for a look that’s balanced while allowing people to easily move about and get seated.
At Joybird, our expert builders handcraft heirloom-quality coffee tables
from premium materials such as solid hardwood and sleek metals. Iconic Mid-century features such as tapered or hairpin legs and loads of organic curves and sculptural lines provide lots of luscious eye candy that will get retro enthusiasts hearts beating. When it comes to wooden coffee tables, you can customize yours in your choice of wood stain for a look that best compliments your décor. Choose dark walnut for that definitive Mid-century modern appearance or pick a lighter maple wood shade if your decorating style leans more Scandinavian or Danish in the vein of famed interior designers Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner. You can even opt for a glass and metal coffee table for a vintage vibe gone glamorous.
Available in nearly any design you can dream up, many of our modern coffee tables have spacious drawers for tucking away odds and ends while others keep it minimal with simply a tabletop for a look that’s clean and stylish. You can pick one that matches your end tables or mix and match styles to bring a more eclectic feel to your living space. Although they are traditionally used as the centerpiece to your sofa and seating, some homes utilize these low-profile tables as an entertainment center that provides plenty of space for your media players speakers or sound bar. You can even style yours with a few houseplants to bring a true 1960’s look to your room.
Once you’ve selected and designed your dream Mid-century modern coffee table, you may want to get a worthy coffee table book or two to accent your new favorite piece of furniture.
