Gathering round the dinner table is a given, especially during the holidays, but gathering round a coffee table offers a more informal space to socialize, play board games, or take in a movie together.

Movie night, family game night, or family gathering: your furniture should work for how you live

Because people are spending more time at home, our home spaces are being pressed into service in many different ways. Even as the pandemic shows signs of slowing down, many folks are planning on a more intimate holiday season than in past years, and the focus has shifted to time together with loved ones rather than big gatherings. Gathering round the dinner table is a given, especially during the holidays, but gathering round a coffee table offers a more informal space to socialize, play board games, or take in a movie together.

Finding the perfect coffee table can be difficult, but it can make all the difference to your room when you get the right piece to match your style, your space and your needs.

Relax! In style and comfort

Your sofa style plays an important role in choosing the right coffee table. For example, if you have recliners, you want to make sure that your table isn’t in the way of putting your feet up in your comfy chair, notes Mandy Singh of Nanaimo Home Furnishings.

“You might need to go with a round coffee table if you have recliners, and if you have a chaise, you might want to opt for end tables instead.”

Of course, it’s important for a new piece to fit in with your existing furnishings, and that’s where custom ordering comes in. No matter your style, from rustic to traditional to contemporary, if you don’t see exactly what you want, the perfect coffee table can be custom made.

Have you ever considered a live edge coffee table? What about concrete, glass, or acrylic? Reclaimed wood looks traditional and rustic, and tells its own story with its unique look.

But I need it in time for Christmas…

Nanaimo Home Furnishings offers fast delivery times on custom-made pieces. Many of their suppliers are right here in BC, which keeps wait times shorter. If you’re looking for a particular finish to complement your existing decor, or a particular style to make a statement, or even a specific size of table, you can find what you want — even if you’re not quite sure what the “perfect” piece would be.

“Measure your existing pieces (including seat height from the floor!) and bring in pictures to make sure that you get the perfect fit and the perfect style,” Mandy says. “We can work together to make sure you get a custom fit-piece that will last.”
