CHI Good Questions: Coffee Table Suggestions?

Ronald sent in a good question: "I want to put a coffee table--or any other sort of functional, not purely decorative--table, in front of this L-shaped sectional sofa, but I'm stymied. I've detected at least three problems...

First, the right side of the sofa was sized to fit the relatively short wall (under the painting), so there's little depth for a table.

Second, I hate to hide the Oriental rug's center medallion.

Third, I tried a couple of small tables but they look sort of weird because the medallion makes them look off-center---the tables seemed to compete with the medallion, if that's possible. I found a petite clear glass Italian table called an "Easy Curve," but it's pricey. CB2 makes something similar out of acrylic, but I figured I'd scrape the heck out of that in short order.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Please add your suggestions for Ronald to the comments below...thanks!
