Oval coffee tables are the ideal-shaped coffee table for most living rooms. Why? Because the elongated shape allows for maximum space to position your tea, cake and magazines, while the rounded corners take up minimal room and prevent you from hitting your leg off the corner every single time you get up. They are pretty toddler friendly, too.

Do oval coffee tables save space?

Oval, or indeed round coffee tables are a practical solution for any living room, as the lack of corners makes it easier to move around the space. This can be helpful for any living room, but is especially worth keeping in mind if you've got little ones running round. If saving space is a priority, you should consider a two in one design, such as a coffee table with storage, to really make the most of the space you have.
