The Aalto table from Cox & Cox is made from carbonised bamboo, a hardening technique more commonly used for flooring. This material makes the coffee table durable yet light, with the looks of natural wood but not the cost. The slatted shelf gives added storage, but a drawer would have been a welcome addition. A matching console table for the hall costs £250.
Inspired by India, the Orrico range by Habitat has an exotic feel to it. This statement round coffee table comes in gold, silver or on-trend rose gold. Each has a unique texture, made by hundreds of tiny hammer marks that catch the light. Despite the heavy appearance, the table is light to move around. Beware: the metal finish can scratch easily, and requires regular dusting.
Speaking of great value, there is probably no greater value than this Dark Espresso Parsons Modern Coffee Table by DHP. If you`re into a very simple aesthetic and more concerned with function over design, this coffee table certainly serves its purpose. This 19″ x 39″ x 17.7″ table is highly durable, and with a dark espresso wood grain finish, it blends in perfectly with almost any type of color scheme. Be warned, however—it only holds up to 50 lbs. on the surface. That`s typically more than enough weight for any standard coffee table, but it`s better to be safe than sorry.
