Melonwoods: Coffee Table Trends To Consider

We have coffee tables in our living areas for both practical and aesthetic purposes. Without them, where do we place your drinks, snacks, books and remote controls? Choosing a coffee table that fits into our room and aesthetics, can be a challenge, but today we’ve got you covered with the ideas below from Melonwoods.

Coffee tables serve a much greater purpose than just a resting place for snacks and drinks – they may serve as a focal point in the room or tie together the overall design scheme.  They may even have handy storage space.


With so many options out there, how do you know which style and size will work best in your space?

Here are a few coffee table trends with examples to get your creative juices flowing:

  1. Natural and organic materials: With increasing awareness of environmental issues, there is a growing demand for coffee tables made from natural materials such as reclaimed wood, rattan and bamboo.
  2. Indoor – Outdoor living: With much of South Africa having a mild climate, we tend to use both our indoor and outdoor spaces – and often have sliding doors or stacker doors between the areas to ensure that we can transition between the spaces easily.  Coffee tables that suit both in and outdoors are becoming popular as they are hardwearing and beautiful.


3. Compact and Space-Saving Design: As our urban spaces become more compact, we are looking for coffee tables that are compact or multifunctional.  We want to use them as coffee and side tables and even stools!  This way we can maximise space efficiency.

4. Artisanal and Handcrafted Pieces: As we prioritize authenticity and craftsmanship, artisan-made coffee tables featuring intricate detailing, hand-carved designs, or custom finishes are gaining traction.  We want to support local and are looking for well made, creative furniture.melonwoods-artisinal-and-hand-crafted-pieces

5. Bold Colors and Patterns: Vibrant hues and playful patterns are making a comeback, adding a pop of personality to living spaces. Coffee tables in unexpected colors or with artistic motifs might appeal to those of us looking to make a statement.

6. Mix of Textures and Materials: Combining different textures such as matte and glossy finishes, or mixing materials like metal and wood, could create visually dynamic coffee table designs that add depth to a room.melonwoods-gregory-mellor-design-customisable-options

7. Customizable Options: With a growing desire for personalized interiors, coffee tables that offer customization options such as choice of materials, colors, and configurations appeal to those of us seeking furniture that reflects our individual style.
