It is the material and look which will never go out of fashion when it comes to tables in your home.

We have picked some of the best which we think will catch your eye.

The Best Wooden Coffee Tables

Yew And Glass Coffee Table by A+B FURNITURE


  • Dimensions: H42 x L90 x W50cm
  • Material: Solid Yew, Toughened glass

A table which is made to order, so every single one will be slightly different if you love the idea of uniqueness.

The grain patterns in the wood combine beautifully with the solid glass running through the centre. The use of yew also makes the grains individual – it isn’t a wood commonly used in furniture making.

Therefore, each table is made with care and attention to ensure that each piece of wood matches perfectly. The glass is solid, so not easily scratched or tarnished. This will be pleasing news to anyone who is worried about having glass anything in their home.

Reasons to Buy

  • Very strong and sturdy
  • Individually hand crafted

Reasons to Avoid

  • Price – but you are paying for attention to detail and quality

Embrace Walnut Coffee Table – Best Clever


  • Dimensions: H37.5 x W85 x D35cm
  • Material: Bent plywood

This wooden table definitely offers something different, for anyone who loves quirky storage and usage ideas.

It is an award-winning piece, made up of two separate tables. When apart, they form two low tables for anyone who needs a bit of extra space to place drinks or snacks. When this isn’t needed though, the smaller table can be turned upside down and slotted into the larger one.

This then forms a coffee table with a shelf for extra storage, plus magazine racks either side. It is one of the most innovative, clever coffee tables we have reviewed and seen, and will be perfect for anyone stuck on space but who loves to entertain.

Reasons to Buy

  • Great idea for multiple uses
  • Very sturdy
  • Handmade

Reasons to Avoid

  • Nothing!

  • Dimensions: 10-30 inches
  • Material: Rattan

This handmade table is inspired by traditional Thai designs and patterns and is perfect for something that bit different.

It is normally marketed as an outdoor table but we think it could look perfect in the right room too. It is made in Chonburi, Thailand, which is the home of weaving and the worlds largest rattan basket. All products sold by the store are eco-friendly and sustainable, and we love the raised edges for keeping drinks safe.

You can also buy it in various sizes, from 10-30 inches in 2-inch increments.

Reasons to Buy

  • Solid build
  • Traditional craft

Reasons to Avoid

  • Won’t suit every room

Tayma Storage Coffee Table


  • Dimensions: H40 x W115 x D50cm
  • Material: Acacia, Iron

This is an incredibly stylish, post-modern table made from acacia wood, with brass legs to jazz it up a bit.

The storage is great. You get a cupboard with cutout handle and an inner shelf so you can proudly display your coffee table magazines while leaving the top of the table free.

It sits nice and low so is perfect as the centrepiece to a living area, and it is nice and long for plenty of space.

Reasons to Buy

  • Brass legs to bring in other parts of room
  • Quite long but thin for maximum space

Reasons to Avoid

Butlers Coffee Table


  • Dimensions: H45 x W90 x D90cm
  • Material: Oak veneer, Carbon

This Butlers Coffee Table by All Things Brighton Beautiful is really handy if you lack overall space, or want something as a temporary fix.

Say your room is usually used as a play area, or you like it to be open most of the time, but when you sit down to watch that boxset at night, you need somewhere to place your drinks.

This table takes the idea of a Butler’s tray and makes it lower so it is perfect as a coffee table. The tray can be removed and used as a standalone, and the legs can then be folded and stored. Great if you eat dinner on your knee when movie night arrives.

The raised edges would make it a great permanent decoration display too, keeping vases safely on the table.

Reasons to Buy

  • Portable and can be folded up
  • Tray can be used separately

Reasons to Avoid

  • Price

Made from solid pine, arriving fully built and with brass accents to add finishing touches, this is a table which looks well-loved for anyone after the antique, homely look.

There is an open shelf for stacking up those magazines or storage boxes which need to be on show, and then two drawers are the perfect option to keep any of the more unsightly bits out of view.

As the drawers have wooden runners, they pull in and out easily which is great news if you will be using them regularly.

  • Arrives built
  • Two year guarantee

Reasons to Avoid

  • Grooves in wood could get dirty over time

Natural Wood Coffee Table


  • Dimensions: W73 x H41cm
  • Material: Teak wood, Waterhyacynth wicker

By Za Za Homes, this wicker table is for any homes who definitely go for looks over practicality.

It is made from a natural material called Waterhyacynth, and the legs are made from reclaimed teak wood to add some solidness. Even though it is made from wicker, the weave is thick and tight so still creates a solid base for you to keep all of your glasses and mugs safe.

They have loads of other matching items available too, from storage baskets to side tables, so you can create the perfect match.

Reasons to Buy

  • Something a bit different
  • Still very stable and strong

Reasons to Avoid

  • Not the most practical for continuous design

Aspect Brockton Round Coffee Table


  • Dimensions: H35 x W80 x D80cm
  • Material: Concrete, Engineered wood, Oak veneer

Hairpin legs are big at the moment, so much so that upscaling existing coffee tables with them is on-trend. But to avoid the fuss, this table comes ready-made.

The black legs and vintage top are basic yet will really finish any room off. There are a few other designs available too, as well as sizings, which will all match if you’re looking for a set. The best thing, though, is that it comes in comfortably under £100.


Reasons to Buy

  • Easy to wipe clean
  • MDF looks like realistic wood
