Coffee tables: Splurge or save?

Check out these top choices for every style, space


A coffee table can make a stylish and functional focal point for any living room. As Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey of Design Chic like to say, it’s “the place you set your feet, your coffee or your cocktail.”

And although important furniture often equals expensive furniture, this is one piece that allows you to splurge or save, the North Carolina mother-daughter duo said via email, and ideally “make a statement that guests won’t be able to help but comment on.”

Here are some of their top picks.
