5 low-cost coffee tables

The coffee table is usually one of the most prominent and most-used furniture pieces in the living room. Therefore, it pays to invest in a solid, stylish table that won’t fall apart within a year. Most of the tables I’ve found fall between the $160-$299 range. Depending on the style you want, you could find an even better deal. My husband and I managed to score a $130 coffee table on clearance from a local furniture store. The months-long search for a dark wood, mission-style piece with an extra shelf for storage proved difficult, but it paid off in the end.

Check out the following five (technically six) tables for some inspiration:

The Galerie coffee table from Crate & Barrel retails for $249.00 and features some simple decorative touches. It’s got enough space for your magazines, books and any other go-to items.

The modern, angled-leg coffee table from West Elm (above left) is on sale for $229.00 (plus $30 shipping). It comes in both “limed chocolate” and “cinnabar,” so you can go for a more playful color scheme. For a similar look, go with the Vejmon from Ikea (right) for just $169.00. It only comes in brown-black, but it’s got the same basic structure plus an extra shelf.

If your style is ultra-modern, check out this one from CB2. The $199 table is made entirely of glass with shiny chrome edges. I could picture this one placed atop a super-bright, fun area rug. Just make sure your other pieces are on the modern side, too!

Those of you seeking more traditional options might want to give the South Hampton cocktail table from Target a look. This one is $149.99 and comes with two baskets that keep your projects, remote controls, mail, and any other materials neatly tucked away.

If your coffee table budget is under $50, check out the Lack table from Ikea. It’s simple, sizeable and features plenty of extra storage space.
