Finding the Right Coffee and Cocktail Tables for You

As a practical focal point in your living area, antique and vintage coffee tables and cocktail tables are an invaluable addition to any interior.

Low tables that were initially used as tea tables or coffee tables have been around since at least the mid- to late-1800s. Early coffee tables surfaced in Victorian-era England, likely influenced by the use of tea tables in Japanese tea gardens. In the United States, furniture makers worked to introduce low, long tables into their offerings as the popularity of coffee and “coffee breaks” took hold during the late 19th century and early 20th century.

It didn’t take long for coffee and cocktail tables to become a design staple and for consumers to recognize their role in entertaining no matter what beverages were being served. Originally, these tables were as simple as they are practical — as high as your sofa and made primarily of wood. In recent years, however, metal, glass and plastics have become popular in coffee and cocktail tables, and design hasn’t been restricted to the conventional low profile, either.

Visionary craftspeople such as Paul Evans introduced bold, geometric designs that challenge the traditional idea of what a coffee table can be. The elongated rectangles and wide boxy forms of Evans’s desirable Cityscape coffee table, for example, will meet your needs but undoubtedly prove imposing in your living space.

If you’re shopping for an older coffee table to bring into your home — be it an antique Georgian-style coffee table made of mahogany or walnut with decorative inlays or a classic square mid-century modern piece comprised of rosewood designed by the likes of Ettore Sottsass — there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Both the table itself and what you put on it should align with the overall design of the room, not just by what you think looks fashionable in isolation. According to interior designer Tamara Eaton, the material of your vintage coffee table is something you need to consider. “With a glass coffee table, you also have to think about the surface underneath, like the rug or floor,” she says. “With wood and stone tables, you think about what’s on top.”

Find the perfect centerpiece for any room, no matter what your personal furniture style on 1stDibs. Browse a vast selection of antique, new and vintage coffee and cocktail tables today.

Questions About Live Edge Coffee Tables
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    A live edge table is a table where the natural, organic edge of a tree beneath its bark is not shaved off to create a straight edge.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 26, 2021
    A live-edge table is a table that sees the actual gnarled shape of the edge of a tree on at least one side of the structure. This kind of table preserves the forest's natural beauty — impurities in the wood are retained, and the tree's edges are left undisturbed for at least part of the table. Shop a collection of antique, vintage and contemporary live-edge tables from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    The best finish for a live edge table varies. Live edge tables can be treated with a number of finishes. Clear-oil finishes topped with polyurethane, lacquer, or shellac accentuate the wood’s natural grain and texture.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Old-growth redwood, as it is the most stable, is one of the most popular woods used for live edge tables. Black walnut, cherry and oak are also great live-edge options. You can shop a collection of live-edge furniture from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
