Your coffee table is likely the centerpiece of your living room — whether it’s stacked high with books or just an assortment of snacks. But a statement table doesn’t have to break the bank. Whether you’re looking for something rustic, mid-century, or minimalist, we’ve scoured Amazon for some surprisingly tasteful, inexpensive options. We’ve looked at a range of materials, such as glass, wood, and concrete, and we’ve also looked at options for smaller spaces, such as nesting tables and side tables (that could double up as a coffee table).

See-through tables (made from glass or acrylic) are still very popular — these nesting options would compliment a living room already teeming with colour and texture.

We also like this simple (but striking) table, which is made from mango hardwood and has a generous-sized shelf for stashing books or magazines.

This white square table would look particularly appealing with some coffee table books neatly stacked (or hastily strewn) across the top.

These triangle nesting tables would be particularly good in an awkward-shaped space due to their shape. We particularly like the contrasting legs.

This three-table set is a more minimalist option.

The combination of black and white on this table has strong “Marylebone townhouse” energy.

Grey Concrete Coffe Table

While we could see this concrete table in a Bermondsey loft conversion.

The gold hairpin legs on this table offer an interesting contrast to the marble-effect finish.

Vasagle Coffee Table

Vasagle are known for their inexpensive (but reliable) furniture. We’ve written about their desks before, which this square coffee table would complement nicely.

They also do a rectangular option.

With its hairpin legs and neutral grey wood, this coffee table looks like something you might find on

This Scandi-inspired coffee table is perfect if your living room is sparse and minimalist (but it would also look interesting nestled by a pink velvet sofa).

Perfect for small spaces. [Editor’s note: This product is in stock from May 21.]


This geometric design has room for you to stash blankets underneath.

Industrial 3 Tier Coffee Table

This two-tier table is a little more unusual, but features plenty of storage options underneath.

The combination of a magazine-style slope and the concrete material really makes this end table stand out.
