While the kitchen is the heart of the home, the coffee table is the heart of the living room. Come see our favorite modern Scandinavian design coffee tables that can perfectly accommodate a variety of living room styles, shapes, and sizes.
A usable work of art, the sculptural Insert Coffee Table plays with geometry through its oval top and heavy cylindrical base. Both the natural Ash and black-stained Ash options are a durable, functional, and beautiful addition to any Scandinavian-style living room. For a complete sculptural set, pair it with the matching side table.
Formed with FSC™-certified wood, the Post Coffee Tables from Ferm Living draw inspiration from brutalist architecture and design. With two different sizes that give a multilevel coffee table set-up, each table has three cylindrical legs to support a tabletop that uses a marquetry technique to display a linear or star-inspired grain design.
Made with 100% naturally sourced Travertine, the striking Distinct Coffee Table offers multiple levels presented in an earthy, natural, and sculptural design.
The Cluster Tables come in a set of three, giving you the freedom to style them together as a geometric coffee table, or separately throughout the room. The square shape of each tabletop is balanced by delicate metal legs. Made with powder-coated metal, the tables are light yet sturdy and easy to move around based on what best suits your space.
The Around Coffee Table brings a new perspective to its typology through the characterful wooden veneer frame that runs along the edge of the table, echoing the ideas of Scandinavian design. With its round shape and multiple sizes, the Around Coffee Table can be used on its own or in combination with different ways. We like pairing two sizes in a spacious living room.
“The Workshop Coffee Table is a design that is pared down to the essence,” explains designer Cecile Manz. “Deliberately simple in its expression, the table has an almost archetypical appearance that comes from a wish to make as little noise as possible—the details and joints are doing all the talking."
Manz is the designer behind the series of Airy Coffee Tables, too. “The idea behind Airy was to create a side table that did not scream but still was not afraid to speak,” explains Manz. “The result is a table series that masters the fine balance between being light and airy, and at the same time having plenty of personality and individuality. Due to this combination Airy gets a multi-functionality that makes the side tables suitable for every kind of interior.” While Manz refers to Airy as a side table, the larger sizes make great coffee tables, too!
Tablos’ name refers to the English table and the French tableau, the latter meaning a scenic, organized arrangement. With its simple expression, Tablo fits into most interior styles and is quick and easy to assemble without the use of screws.
“In furniture design, pine has been a forgotten wood variety for quite some time. That is a pity because pine is certainly not without its qualities,” says Simon Legald when reflecting on his design of the Pine Table for Normann Copenhagen. “For me, the wood’s fiery growth rings and characteristic aroma represent Nordic soul and warmth. Not least, it makes a lot of sense to use a material that can be found locally in large quantities.”
Turning Table is a simple and elegant coffee table or side table with a storage section neatly hidden beneath a lid that turns open. Designer Theresa Arns was experimenting with adding storage functionality to the table when she came upon the idea of opening the lid by rotating it around one of the legs. The result is utterly addictive!
How do we decide what’s perfect? While perfectly uniform in shape, no two Plinths are quite alike, as the detailing of each naturally occurring marble is created over time by nature, rendered in limestone or dolomite. The dashes of color – the veins – may be called impurities in production jargon, but it’s these splashes of color and texture that make each Plinth unique.
The inherent warmth and lasting quality of FSC®-certified solid wood shine through on the Passage Lounge Table, designed for MENU by Copenhagen-based Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen.
Whether playing host to drinks or home to the remote control or of-the-moment reads, the versatile design brings a feeling of soft serenity to spaces thanks to its calming round shape and traditional Danish cabinetmaking touches. The Passage Lounge Table comes in three sizes, which allow multiples to blend together in a nest-like formation and two finishes: natural and dark lacquered oak.
Kristina Dam’s XL Oak Table is made with simple, untreated oak in black or natural. It ships flat and assembles in seconds with no fasteners needed! Pair it with the smaller Oak Table for a cohesive living room design.
