16 Expensive-Looking Coffee Tables Under $200 (That You Can Buy on Amazon)

By

Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Insecure, cozying up on the sofa for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of the living room. Often, they can be expensive or ugly or impractical (or all three), so we found some of the best affordable options under $200 that are also functional and stylish. Below, 16 of the best expensive-looking coffee tables, no matter what your taste.

Minimal

Use this sleek and surprisingly affordable coffee table (it’s Umbra) to complement even the most colorful room.

Note: This table’s price went up since we first wrote about it.

A nice little mixed-media number without the sky-high cost — the surface is faux-marble.

Okay, it’s not exactly a coffee table — you may want to top it with a glass surface or tray so nothing falls between the slats — but if it’s a hard-edged-wood look you’re going for, this is it.

This three-foot-by-20-inch coffee table in unfinished wood would be perfect for a studio apartment.

This mid-century-inspired triangular table is on the taller end of the spectrum (it’s nearly three feet tall).

An itty–bitty square table that’s made for one — in the cheeriest shade of bright yellow (it’s almost a cousin to this nightstand).

Metal

For something completely different, try this no-assembly-required white wire coffee table, which makes everything you put on it (from Rizzoli books to a bouquet of ranunculus) pop.

It’s almost a cheerful piece of pop art — set a tray, display some accents, and host a Game of Thrones party.

Storage

Our love of clear-plastic accents is well-known — we still love the storage legs on this acrylic table.

Note: This table’s price went up since we first wrote about it.

The problem with most coffee tables that provide storage is that there’s no room to stretch your legs underneath. This solves that.

A cozy little coffee table in a nostalgic shade of seafoam green.

The image may show one thing, but there’s no need to store your shoes under the table; some travel souvenirs, coasters, or the new Claire Messud would be great, too.

Made in Denmark, this sustainable-wood table is appropriately hygge.

Nesting

Like two coffee tables in one, these nesting wrought-iron coffee tables can be placed side by side for an elongated experience.

The Matryoshka doll of high-gloss coffee tables, these can be easily stacked into each other and put in the closet for a party.

Not a Coffee Table, Per Se

Strictly speaking, this isn’t quite a coffee table, though it certainly can function as one (as well as a chair, a side table, or a nightstand).
