A great coffee table can be the focal point of a living room, or it can simply do its subtle, thankless part to pull together the elements of any given space without a lot of fuss and bother. Today’s roundup of contemporary coffee table designs has a few visual standouts, like the Strand coffee table by Arktura and the Rubiks-cube-inspired FLOAT table by RockPaperRobot, which is quite literally held together yet apart by magnetic fields. But really, this collection in particular is mostly about a quietly chic, retro-modern aesthetic that holds its own without declaring itself too loudly, and as a result, stands the fickle test of time. Now, there’s a good reason to put your feet up and relax.
