Coffee Table Alternatives

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Today we’re sharing some coffee table alternatives to show how you can go beyond the standard table in your living room. We hope these ideas help inspire you, whether you’re looking for a living room refresh or want to better complement your style.

Carolina Double Bench

Cubby Storage BenchBenched

A bench is truly a versatile piece of furniture. You can find benches in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, so it makes sense for them to also work as a coffee table if you are lacking space in a living room or need more storage solutions.

Our Cubby Bench is a great option because of its – you guessed it – cubbies! They can fit baskets if you prefer hidden storage, or you can conveniently place books and electronics inside for later use. As you can see, three sides of this bench are higher than the face, which, if you were using it as a bench, would snugly fit a cushion. However, as a coffee table, this allows you to keep things on top – like beverages – with a decreased risk of them falling off.

For a more sleek and simple look, our Carolina Double Bench and Knotty Pine Shelf Bench offer different looks and function for a more minimalist room.

Paneled Storage ChestTrunk Show

Storage chests and trunks have the blockiness of a standard coffee table, but offer a roomy storage solution in your living room. Our Paneled Storage Chest features a more classic design that would complement a variety of styles, and the recessed details separates the top into two sections – perfect for a his-and-her orientation.  The Black Hyacinth Storage Trunk has a personality that warms any room, and its completely flat top makes it a great focal point around which to arrange your furniture.


Vivian Upholstered OttomanUpholstered Dream

Cushioned ottomans as central furnishings in a living room have climbed the trend ladder. This type of furniture acts as a more cozy, intimate coffee table in a living room and with the plethora of form and fabric options, the possibilities are nearly endless.

For tufted or slightly rounded ottomans, we recommend finding a coordinating or contrasting tray to allow yourself and your guests a hard surface on which to set snacks, beverages and other items.

Quick Tip: Nature-Inspired Decor

Quick Tip: Nature-Inspired Decor and Home Accents

Nature-inspired decor doesn’t have to come just from the outdoors. Especially in cities or the suburbs where yards and gardens are small or non-existent, or if a member of your household has plant-related allergies, faux flowers, lighting and pillows are great substitutes for real flowers and greenery.

Primitive Entryway Chair

Primitive Entryway Chair (in Red)

At the beginning of the month we talked a little bit about choosing the right seating for your taste and home decor. To dive into more specific seating, today we are spotlighting a few of our beloved benches, all from the Rustic Country Collection. Benches are a great way to fill up hallway space or empty corners of a room, especially since you can use them to display photographs, pillows, plants, and much more. Plus, they work well for sitting down in entryways or mudrooms while you take off or put on your shoes.

All of our benches in the Rustic Country Collection are handcrafted in the United States using traditional woodworking methods and wood sourced from Sustainable Forestry Initiative mills. Each bench features a distressed finish, so each piece looks unique while complementing any home decor. The eight available colors also give you the opportunity to coordinate with other furniture pieces, or mix and match with the other furniture in this collection. You are sure to find a bench you will love, so take a look below (and did we mention they are all on sale?!).

Knotty Pine Shelf Bench

Primitive Entryway Chair
This chair-styled bench is perfect for filling smaller areas or corners of your home. The high back and low seat mimic colonial furniture, so this chair is sure to fit into your primitive themed home; whether you want to use it as a chair or for displaying seasonal ornaments.
Color Suggestions: Try our Primitive Entryway Chair in mustard to add a pop of color to any room. This chair is small enough that the mustard color will not overwhelm onlookers, yet it is noticeable enough for the color to be admired.

Knotty Pine Shelf Bench
This bench has an unfinished and rustic appearance, which is great for creating a traditional-modern look in any room of your home. Shoes, slippers, and even books can be stored on the bottom shelf, beneath the seating surface which can double as a display surface for small figurines or pillows.
Color Suggestion: The classic black looks great on this classic bench, and completes the traditional-contemporary feel of the pine.

Knotty Pine Bench

Knotty Pine Bench (in Sage)

Knotty Pine Bench
Our Knotty Pine Bench is a perfect addition to any cottage decor or for completing your traditional-modern look. This simple bench has a unique fold-over top, and has an excellent amount of space for seating in a mudroom or near an entryway closet.
Color Suggestion: Sage looks great on this bench – the simplistic style is nicely dressed up with a classic, country color like this and easily complements any home decor.

Farmhouse Pine Bench

Farmhouse Pine Bench (in Black)

Farmhouse Pine Bench
Our Farmhouse Pine Bench comes from Wisconsin, and perfectly exemplifies functional, farmhouse-style furniture that is beautiful in any home. Use in a hallway to display photographs and books; in an entryway for sitting down and removing shoes; or use in a pantry for storing dog treats or jars. The backing offers added security to whatever you decide to put on the shelves – ensuring that those items don’t fall if pushed too far backwards.

Boot & Storage Bench

Boot & Storage Bench (in Red)

Color Suggestion: Try this bench in cream to make the distressed finish stand out, and to really complete that traditional farmhouse look.

Boot & Storage Bench
A larger version of our Primitive Entryway Chair, our Boot & Storage Bench features a lid that lifts up to expose a storage compartment perfect for keeping hats, mittens, or small blankets out of sight but within easy reach. There is even enough room to use this bench for displaying pillows or figurines while still offering enough room for you to sit down and take off your shoes.
Color Suggestions: Red is one of the most versatile design colors, so choosing it for the boot and storage bench will give you maximum design opportunities in your kitchen, bedroom, hallway, or any other room in your home.
