Nesting Tables


Coffee tables can be considered as the most prominent and functional complementary furniture in our spaces. While the central coffee tables, by being located in the center of the room, give the first impression of your space, complementary side tables can enrich your space due to their ability to serve multiple functions. Of course, there are certain aspects to consider when choosing coffee tables of various sizes and usage patterns. 

Firstly, you can start by determining the ideal dimensions for the central coffee table. It is crucial that its width is not too small compared to your sofa to ensure visual balance. You should proceed with dimensions that do not obstruct circulation but fit in the space effectively. Oversized coffee tables can hinder the spacious look of the room. On the contrary, choosing a small coffee table in a large space can create a weak and careless appearance. Especially if you have a large living room, choosing models designed as a set and integrated with each other instead of a single coffee table will provide a dynamic look to the space and be quite comfortable as they can be used as separate pieces. 

Another important point regarding dimensions is the height of the coffee table. While the height of coffee tables varies between 40-50 cm on average and does not have a clear standard height like dining tables, it is beneficial for the coffee table not to be too low if your main purpose is to place tea/coffee or occasionally eat. Low coffee tables can be more tiring in terms of usage in this regard. If you plan to use it more for decorative purposes, you can opt for slightly lower coffee tables. Of course, you should consider the height of your sofa here as well. Coffee tables higher than the sofa can make your room appear smaller than it is. 

Coffee tables come in a wide range of versions in terms of design style and functions, offering a wide range of options in terms of type and usage area. For example, coffee tables with shelves are highly practical as they provide extra space. You can use the lower tier for books, magazines, and items you want to have at your fingertips, while maintaining a more organized use on the upper tier. 

C-shaped tables stand out with their functionality as they can slide into the sofas, allowing you to use them comfortably without the need to lean or stretch, and take up less space. Since they provide comfortable and minimal use with C tables in small rooms, they can be a logical choice. 

Work tables allow you to work in places other than the desk and provide a practical solution for employees in the increasingly popular work-from-home system. If you need such a table, you can check out our Hempa model. 

In addition to main coffee tables, side tables can also be placed in any space. Your armchairs complemented by a stylish side table will create a pleasant corner in your living space. At this point, it would be beneficial to pay attention to the height of the side table according to its intended use. For example, if you will put lighting on it, a relatively high side table will be much more practical. However, if you will use a side table that will be more active and serve as a serving area, it should be in intermediate sizes for easy access. 

Especially central coffee tables are frequently used furniture. Therefore, it is advisable to prioritize their durability in your choice. While wooden coffee tables are often preferred in such cases, your priorities may change depending on your space. If you have a small living room, a glass coffee table will create a much more spacious perception in the space. However, if you have enough wood usage in your living room, you can achieve a more balanced look by turning to different materials such as metal, marble, lacquer. 

Additionally, it is worth mentioning that if you have small children, avoiding sharp-cornered coffee tables will be much safer for you and your child. With rounded edges, you can use all Demontha furniture with peace of mind in this regard.
