Best Size for a Coffee Table or Ottoman in Tiny Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I have a big for New York, but small for everywhere else, living room, and I'd like to get an ottoman or a coffee table for the living room to tie everything together. Any suggestions on what to use as an ottoman or coffee table in such a small space? I've tried a small square nesting table, but it was too small and too high, and most traditional coffee tables are way too big. Any tricks for figuring out the dimensions for a coffee table/ottoman that'd be big enough to make a statement without overpowering the whole room?
