Determining the 'Life' of Your New Coffee Table
Obviously, you know your style, so the next step is determining how you expect to use the coffee table. Are you looking to create a showplace? Or is your home among the 'lived-in' ilk?
Odds are if you've a few kids in the mix, you might be opting for a black finish to mask what messy fingers leave behind. On the contrary, my mother had one room--the living room--that was off limits to us four kids, so she had several formal pieces sequestered in her space.
The black coffee tables like those I'm featuring here are ideal for kicking back and putting one's feet up.
While it may seem that leather and leather-like furniture are taboo if kids are anywhere near the vicinity, I was pleasantly surprised how easily it wiped clean after my twin boys had assaulted it with seemingly all twenty toes and fingers!
For a sophisticated look with the comfort of a 70's Barcalounger, you might find these black square coffee tables 'all-inclusive.'

Multi-Purpose Furniture: The Small Spaces Asset - Lift Top Square Black Coffee/Cocktail Table
I mentioned purpose above and while you may not have considered a lift-top coffee table they come in mighty handy if you're prone to eat in front of the TV on game or family night, lift-tops make good sense.
The clean lines on this black-finished table make it an ideal candidate for modern and contemporary spaces.
Coffee tables with storage underneath can be a good thing but if you don't keep an eye on it, clutter can take over, making a messy presentation. In my own experience, baskets were always a solution for stowing away remotes and anything with wires.
Consider natural weave baskets with lids for an attractive storage solution.

It's not uncommon to move into a new home and find that your favorite coffee and end tables don't fit your space. and all too often, we've a coffee table and two end tables to contend with.

Still not feeling the love?
It's time for Plan B: I suggest using glass top tables--especially in smaller living spaces; they're space-makers, for sure. Glass tops create space, well the illusion of space, exactly. It's transparency alludes to space, air and for ever and ever-ness. I'll expound on glass's impact on a space, below.

Matching Tables: Should You Do the Set Thing?
As I mentioned, glass is the ideal choice for small rooms, as its transparency creates an airy, floating illusion as though the tables take up far less floor space.
Typically, all we see is the tables frame and when visualized in terms of mass, a simple frame barely takes away from available floor space. Indeed, glass is the solution to having more space in your living area and glass-topped, square coffee tables betray an aire of light with its reflective properties. Glass is quite the impressive candidate for small spaces, isn't it?
Chunky, solid pieces look every bit their size and require more floor space to look great. Glass top tables allow you to get by with minimal space, while serving as a full-size piece.
These modern glass top tables have the high visual appeal you'll need for your focal point, adding interest, while affording room for your everyday activities.

Hmmm . . .
I'm not certain on this very simple, very unique coffee table but what I can say, is this black coffee table, while simple, can fit into the very sophisticated of spaces or, conversely, into a simply appointed room. It smooth, black finish and square design would make a wonderful conversation piece with chairs all around.
If you've an awkwardly-long living area, put this table to work on both ends of the space and create two distinct areas for entertaining. I could go on with possibilities for the coffee table but you may be reeling with ideas yourself.
Indeed, this is some coffee table; it's the equivalent to a little black dress in the decorator world.

While this coffee table ottoman is rather large, you'll come out a better person (well, that's a bit of a stretch, but still).
We're so much the collector that we can easily amass stuff we swear we can't do without. Keep a lid on the clutter--literally--and secret it inside your coffee table.
Or (I saved the best for last) keep board games or gaming accoutrements tucked inside to keep teeny fingers from being smashed and games intact. Too, all your fun stuff is housed together, at the ready so there's no hunting spoiling the fun.
And with four serving trays, you've a tray for everyone, or at least it's a start.
