A round coffee table is a useful and versatile piece that is particularly suited for smaller spaces. It's just much easier to walk around a table without any angles, and if it doesn't work in the center of the room, you can easily move it to a corner. 

Some of our favorite coffee tables ever are round designs, many of them with extra storage or an unusual finish that make them worth the investment.

2. Marshall coffee table

Coffee table: H18 x W37.75 x D37.75" | The Marshall coffee table has a striking two-tone design, which is a boon if you can't decide whether you want a dark of light coffee table. Our favorite feature, however, is the recessed top – it gives this table the functional quality of a breakfast tray and looks unique. Made from engineered wood.

3. Athena nesting tables

Coffee tables: Larger H18.1 x W32.7 x D32.9, Smaller H22.6 x W20 x D20” | Why have one coffee table when you can have two? Nesting tables are one of the biggest coffee table trends at the moment, and this pair from Novogratz is both stylish and sturdy. The faux marble top finish is forgiving of daily wear and tear, and the metal hairpin legs add a contemporary edge. Available in a black or white color scheme.

4. Brass Starburst round coffee table

Coffee table: H18 x W29 x D44'' | If you want a statement piece that will bring your whole living room look together, look no further. This coffee table is absolutely gorgeous, with inlaid brass detailing that catches the light beautifully. It is expensive, but the top is crafted from real marble. It is sealed, so you don't need to worry about the marble getting stained. And base and legs are made from Indian rosewood. A luxury investment piece for the ages. Comes in two diameter options – 36 or 44 inches.

5. Signal coffee table

Coffee table: H16 x D34 | This coffee table is the perfect solution for small spaces – it is a full-sized coffee table with the slender footprint of a much smaller piece, thanks to its hourglass shape and see-through metal supports. What we really like is the choice of tabletops – glass, walnut, oak, or even Carrara marble ($200 extra). We can' think of a living room this coffee table wouldn't work in.

7. Fransen Round Storage Ottoman

Coffee table: H20 x W36 x D36'' | A coffee table that's also an ottoman that's also a seat? Yes, this brilliant piece is all three – and it also has a shelf for magazines under the storage compartment. Use it to store blankets, serve breakfast, or rest your feet on while watching TV. Comes in three colors (we like the cream). The tufted finish is a classic that will never go out of fashion.

The walnut and glass combo will look perfect as part of a contemporary or Mid-century modern living room.

How to choose a round coffee table

The most important thing to consider when choosing a round coffee table is the diameter. It's a very good idea to measure the space you have to get an idea of whether the coffee table will fit in your living room together with all the other furniture you have. 

The next thing to think about is the height. It will matter less if you're only using your coffee table for decorative purposes, but if you're planning to also use it as a breakfast table, go for a taller design. 

Next, choose the material. A round coffee table made from solid wood or marble will easily last a lifetime, but both of these materials scratch and stain easily and will need to be sealed. Glass coffee tables will be somewhat cheaper than real stone or wood, but they are more fragile and are best avoided in busy households with children. If cost is a major consideration, consider a faux-marble or metal design.
