Which Coffee Table To Choose For Living Room?

Q: I have an 11' x 14' space that we are currently making a tv/lounge area. I have set it off from the rest of the open plan house with an Expedit bookcase. I have ordered a shorter sofa to replace the broken one currently there- the 78" Vaughn sofa from Crate and Barrel in an off white wool flannel. I am having trouble choosing the coffee table. I know I want a white marble table…

… and am looking at a Saarinen oval coffee table or a rectangular marble and chrome like the Florence Knoll table. Which table would look better and also be functional/ practical? I would also welcome suggestions for rugs and additional seating. I tend to prefer neutrals and using different textures and materials rather than color for interest, although I wouldn't mind a few pops of color.
