I mentioned this a million times: my fiance and I have a complete opposite taste for decor. For clothes, we are almost twins. But when it comes to furniture and decor we are like water and wine. And coffee tables are our greatest contend. I can’t think of a living room without a good coffee table. He thinks coffee tables are old-fashioned. And why? Because growing up, his dad had coffee tables! So I wrote this post about mid-century modern coffee tables to prove to my fiance wrong that timeless design can never be outdated! I gathered a little bit of everything. Round, with storage, glass, nesting, wood, square, small, from Target to design pieces like the timeless Platner and Sareen coffee tables. But only pieces of good quality and satisfied (mostly, of course) customer reviews.

And hopefully, it will help you find the perfect mid-century modern coffee table for your living room. Major win-win!
