We've seen an increase of interest surrounding oval shaped cocktail tables...and we love it! This classic shape is the perfect choice for a cocktail table and can help break-up the design of your living room. Browse through our top reasons why we love oval cocktail tables and view some of our favorite picks.
1. Traditional, Transitional, Modern and more
An oval shaped coffee table seems like a classic piece and can easily slide into the traditional category, but classics belong to transitional and modern design too! Depending upon the materials and design details, oval cocktail tables can fit into traditional homes, transitional rooms, or modern designs.
2. Everyone Loves Some Curves!
Most living rooms easily become grids with too many squared off shapes. Think about your sofa or sectional, rug, tv stand, etc., they typically seem to be various rectangle shapes. Adding an oval coffee table adds some curves into the room and helps to break up your line of sight.
3. More Space and Better Movement
With curved edges instead of corners, there seems to be more space around the cocktail table to move about. This can be particularly important for smaller spaces like a condo, apartment, or urban townhome. Bonus - without corners, there's less danger to your knee caps as you walk by!
4. Great for Gathering
Because of the oval shape, these cocktail tables naturally encourage gathering and conversation. People often maneuver themselves to sit around the curved edges, focusing on a central focal point and encouraging conversation.
