The Best Wooden Coffee Tables

1.
Yew And Glass Coffee Table by A+B FURNITURE

Specifications

  • 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

2.
Embrace Walnut Coffee Table – Best Clever

Specifications

  • 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.

Butlers Coffee Table

Specifications

  • 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.

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

Reasons to Avoid

  • Price

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.

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

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.
