As we plan for our office rooms or lounge areas, it is best to think about shape and design.  If you have more visitors in your office rooms or your room is in a narrow shape? Then the ideal table for narrow rooms is slime and round style. If you are planning for your lounge area, then having a round table with curved edges is best to have. As sharp corners have a risk of injuries while someone falls or bumps on it.  Having a round table gives you a lot more space to walk in the room. 


Just like the shape of the table is important, the same goes for size.  The height of the coffee table should be 1-2 inches lower than your couch or  sofa seats.  Standard height of the table should be 16-18 inches.  If you want to place a table with a set of chairs then height should be approximately 20-21 inches.  As it will be more convenient for guests to  put plates and glass on tables.
