The best coffee tables are a stylish and functional finishing touch to your living room.
Not only are they an opportunity to play with colour, texture and style, they're extremely functional too.
Perfect for placing your tea or coffee down without spilling, resting a TV dinner or for hosting dinner parties, we'd argue they're essential.
We've handpicked our top 12 designs, with styles ranging from traditional classics to modern and minimal, so no matter what your home looks like, there's a coffee table to suit.
We've also paid close attention to budget as it's easy to spend up into the high hundreds when it comes to homewares, so our roundup also included plenty of options under £100 too.
