Suggestions for a Colorful Coffee Table?

Good Questions

Q: I've been living in my lovely little apartment in Amsterdam since 2006. The decor (if you can call it that) is pretty demure and hasn't changed much since I moved in, and I want to add some color to it. I also want a bigger coffee table and think it would be nice to add some pop to my living room by picking a bright, bold color. I don't want to add another piece that's white or wood-color.

The problem is: I don't know what would work. I have an old couch and matching chairs that belonged to my grandmother. They are pale green with soft pink flowers. I'm thinking of a bright green or maybe dark peacock-green table — what are your thoughts? Would that work in this room? Or would that make for too much green with the couch? Are there any other colors that would work in this room? Any help is much appreciated!
