Morning, afternoon or night, there’s often no greater remedy to life’s ails than a 5-minute sit down with a cup of tea. Especially now that the nights are drawing in.

We’re less about making the most of the summer sun and more about getting back into the warm, so we can settle in on the sofa.

And it doesn’t matter whether you’re looking forward to a morning cuppa, hot chocolate or quiet glass of wine, there’s something about having the perfect coffee table that makes everything feel complete.

They also make great centre pieces for your living room and are the perfect spot for reading, watching a movie and relaxing. Keep them clear to stay tidy and organised or fill with nibbles and treats for a Friday night feast in front of the TV.

We have a fantastic range of coffee tables perfect for any style of living room. And we believe no sitting room is complete without one.

And you don’t just have to keep them to the living room either. Depending on your available space, they can work really well in studies, bedrooms and conservatories. All you need to do is find a place around the house where you simply love to sit.

To help you choose the perfect accompaniment to your morning cup of tea, here are our top five coffee tables.

1) Large White Coffee Table

This Large White Coffee Table is not only super spacious – ideal for entertaining as well as relaxing – it also comes with extra storage space. Perfect for tucking your magazines and secret stash of biscuits.

2) White & Bamboo Nest of Tables

Having a little nest of coffee tables that you can whip out at a moment’s notice is always useful when you’re juggling several things at once. They’re great for when the dinner is on and you’re looking for somewhere to perch that glass of wine. Or when you just fancy some treats in front of the TV, you can quickly slide one out as an extra spot for nibbles.
