Some people get their kicks from the latest installment of the “Star Wars” saga. For others, it’s discovering vintage comic books or anticipating the latest video game. For me, I geek out on furniture — specifically coffee tables. These functional pieces are great for everything from gathering with friends and family to putting your feet up (or if you’re like me, eating dinner while watching reruns of “Law & Order: SVU”). And while the straight edges of a rectangular coffee table might be the go-to choice for many, sometimes right angles turn out to be the wrong fit for a room. This is where opting for a modern, round coffee table will save the day.

By helping you maximize every square inch of your small space, round coffee tables give you more walking room, allowing for better traffic flow. Rounded edges can also soften your aesthetic and may simply fit better with the size, shape, and placement of your sofa — and all the while, your tired feet will never know the difference. I’ve pulled together 12 of my favorite modern round coffee tables (in a mix of price points and styles) to set you off in the right direction when searching for your perfect piece. Watch out for the dangerously stunning curves ahead.

I'll say it: I’m not always a mid-century modern kind of gal, but a chic gray finish and flared wood legs bring this round coffee table into the 21st century while still expressing a vintage vibe through its mod shape.

Add a touch of modern glam to your living room with the Meanna coffee table from Wayfair. Hand cast in aluminum by skillful artisans, it features a striking deckled edge that gives it an ornate look that still feels natural.

This coffee table has a rose gold finish — 'nuf said about why it makes for a good choice when it comes to finding the right round table. Rose gold has been a design trend that thankfully shows no signs of stopping, and the sculptural base lends interest to the straightforward circular shape of the glass top if you’re looking to shake things up.

With a Scandinavian edge thanks to its sleek and delicate profile, this walnut coffee table is a handsome choice, and even though the top is slightly more oval in shape, it still gives you a rounded effect. Plus, the splayed legs are super unique and add a focal element you're sure to love for years to come.

When I’m on the hunt for design solutions that won't break the bank, I turn to what may seem like an unexpected source: QVC! The Aliane rattan coffee table is crafted from intertwined strips of rattan, giving your room a dose of boho flair. Perfect for curating a dreamy cottage-inspired space, the rounded shape keeps it feeling petite so small spaces can enjoy too.

My favorite thing about this mosaic table is that, even though it has a flat, round surface, the glimmering, multi-colored tiled pattern gives it a depth that adds a special richness to the room. The powder-coated black iron base is as much a part of the design as the top. The concrete tiles — inlaid by hand — make the table fresh and modern with an artistic lean.

West Elm
was $699.00

This one actually caught my eye because it wasn’t marble and white. Modern and refreshing, it comes in the form of a spun-metal brass base and solid mango wood top. Made in India, this coffee table is a unique piece and a storage lover's dream with its deep drum basin.

One look at the Reese Coffee Table and I was smitten. This round coffee table features a tiered design with a chic glass tabletop and a versatile fixed lower shelf, perfect for displaying your favorite coffee table books or beloved knick-knacks.

Crate & Barrel

You could probably guess that the white top and brass-finished legs of this marble coffee table make it an automatic win for me, but I especially love it for its architectural and sculptural quality. Because round tabletops are fairly simple, having fun with the base is a great way to play with form.

Beveled glass and a handcrafted Douglas Fir wood base make this table a solid piece of art. Proudly made in Michigan, this structural coffee table can also be customized with a variety of finishes and wood options for a unique statement piece all your own.

This white, brass, and teal coffee table is the definition of design eye candy. It was handcrafted using bone inlay to achieve a Moroccan-tile-inspired feel and pay homage to ancient Egyptian techniques. At 45″ in diameter, it offers more surface area than the typical round coffee table might provide.

This table is for the marble lovers — and only the marble lovers. If you’re someone who believes in jewelry for the home, then the Envision pedestal coffee table, carved from solid marble, is certainly the home accessory you didn't even know you were looking for — until now.
