Only on rare occasions will you find a living room fitted with a coffee table in a bold hue; most homeowners will play it safe by selecting a table that’ll abide by the sofa colour scheme. Times are changing however, as we’ve finally discovered that pairing a colorful coffee table with a neutral sofa is the far more sensible approach! After all, it is much cheaper than replacing your colorful sofa when revamping the living room. From the striped B & W coffee tables to the bright blues and yellows, why don’t you try out something unique and fun this 2018?

Keep it simple!
