You could put just one coffee table in your living room. That sounds like the expected, reasonable, more affordable option that will fit in any space. But don't stop there! Going for two coffee tables instead of one comes with a lot of benefits along with style.

When you're living room is rocking the double coffee table vibes, you've got more flexibility with how you arrange them, which could be great for a small space (you might even consider different heights for nest-ability). And the look of two objects side by side has a stronger visual impact than just one coffee table sitting solo. But don't take our word for it:
