5 x Coffee Tables

1. DLM Table by HAY 2. Artek's Trienna Coffee Table 3. Block Table by Normann Copenhagen 4. Tablo Tray Table by Design House Stockholm 5. Tablo by Normann Copenhagen 

There are a few pieces of furniture we still need in our home. Firstly, I haven't been able to find bedside tables I really like (they are often too bulky in my opinion), secondly I would like to get a new dining table and chairs to replace our old ones and thirdly, we desperately need a coffee table. I've found most of the coffee tables way too big for our living room area, so we've been using these IKEA stools as a temporary solution. I really don't want a coffee table that sits in between the sofa and the TV, but rather a small side table that doesn't take too much space.

I really can't pick a favourite amongst the Scandinavian design pieces I've gathered above. They all have pros and cons, but I could easily imagine all of them in our living room. As you can see, I've already decided on the colour, but I'm indecisive of the style. For purely practical reasons, I could go with the Block Table from Normann Copenhagen (the bottom layer would be ideal for magazines, for example) or the Tablo Tray Table from Design House Stockholm (the tray is separate so it doesn't take much space), but the Artek table is quite a design piece on its own and I quite like the two other tables shown above as well. Decisions decision! I promise to show you the outcome once I've made up my mind.

Which one is your favourite? Or is there another coffee table you like?
