1. Is furniture coordination not exactly your forte as a decorator? No problem. Most of our contemporary coffee table sets include a coffee table and two matching end tables or nesting side tables that can be placed around your living room for a more unified look.
2. Many of the contemporary coffee table set styles on our site lean more toward transitional and classic forms, and would work well in a wide variety of decors. A coffee table set that combines a glass table top with a wood or metal base is a versatile choice for interiors that bridge the modern-traditional divide.
3. Occasional tables are a charming twist on the standard coffee table set trio. An occasional table is typically a smaller, more decorative type of coffee table that's used primarily for displaying collectibles, photos, and curios or holding items such as candles and potpourri dishes.
4. A contemporary coffee table set is a smart choice if you're decorating your living room on a limited budget. You get three durable, high-quality pieces for a cost that's lower than that of a typical coffee table, which leaves more money for a luxurious sofa or lounger.
