Power Couples: Sofas and Coffee Tables
Back by popular demand, we have another edition in our “Power Couples” series. In case you missed the first few (dining tables/chairs, beds/nightstands, chandeliers/sconces, desks/office chairs) be sure to check those out. But if you are new to the series then let me give you a little background before we dive in. We started the power couples series to help take some of the stress and anxiety out of the furniture buying process for you. Because, well, there is nothing worse than buying a coffee table that you love and a sofa that you love and then finding out that they may stylistically look good together but functionally or scale-wise they don’t work.
Not only can it be a costly mistake, but realizing that your new coffee table is 4 inches too short for the scale of your sofa after they have been delivered and unpacked in your living room is a total bummer. So – let me introduce you to 34 combinations of sofas and coffee tables that are 100% guaranteed to look good together. This means the colors, scales, styles, and finishes have been stared at for a long time by the EHD crew, and we have made sure that you can buy knowing that there won’t be an issue.
When it comes to selecting the perfect coffee table for your sofa and visa versa there are a few rules that you should remember. Your coffee table should be at least half the width of your sofa (if not more). Typically you will want to find something that is 2/3rds the length of your sofa. Next, you will want to make sure that your coffee table is no shorter than 4″ from the seat of your sofa. That means if you measure from the floor to the sofa seat and it is 16″ your coffee table should be no shorter than 12″ tall. Just as the right heels make the dress, the right coffee table can make the sofa. So without further ado, here are 34 combos that we pulled together that are all available online and ready for your buying pleasure.
