Follow this simple guide to choosing the correct size Coffee Table. The way to determine size varies slightly for a sectional sofa vs. a standard sofa.
Let's take a closer look.
Sectional Sofa: A round coffee table should measure about 1/2 to 2/3rd's the length of either seat. For a rectangular coffee table it should measure 1/2 - 2/3rd's the length of the horizontal seat. In this case the longest portion of the sectional.
Standard Sofa: This is a little simpler. The coffee table should measure 1/2 to 2/3rd's the length of the entire sofa.
