We've talked about the love affair with our Blu Dot Bonnie & Clyde sectionals before, but our sofa duo is in desperate need of a third piece to complete the look: a coffee table. We bought the sofas just before getting Bacon and this open expanse of floor turned out to make the perfect playground for our new puppy, so we hardly noticed the missing table. But a year later, we're ready to use this room for living rather than as a puppy pen. Our transient Mag Table is more bothersome than helpful and it's just too small. We want a stationary coffee table, accessible from anywhere along the couches...but what shape, round or square?
A note: Since taking the lead picture, we've done some Flor tile shuffling and our couches now rest atop Stampede brown Flor (below) instead of those colorful Toy Poodles (above). Also, the stance of the couches is very low — the top of the seat is only 16" from the floor — which makes many coffee tables (usually 16" high) too tall to match comfortably. Both Blu Dot coffee tables shown below are 13" and 12" high, respectively, though we are open to other options.
We both love the concept of a round coffee table but we're both hesitant to take the plunge. The square seems to be the perfect fit but then we wonder if the square-ness of the sofas would make it all too hard, too rigid.
