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

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.


Umbra Konnect Glass-Top Coffee Table
$250 at Amazon

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.

Sauder Soft Modern Cocktail/Coffee Table in Fine Walnut Finish
$74 at Amazon

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

Slat Bench 60-inch Walnut Finish
$136 at Amazon

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.

WE Furniture 32” Hairpin Leg Wood Coffee Table
$96 at Amazon

Ikea Lack Side Table
From $25 at Amazon

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).


Safavieh Collection Reginald White Coffee Table

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.

Adeco Accent Round Starburst Table
$90 at Amazon

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


HomCom 38 in. Modern Acrylic Coffee Table
$180 at Amazon

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.

Topeakmart Modern Rectangular Wood Coffee Table With White Metal Storage Shelf
From $38 at Amazon

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

Sauder Original Cottage Coffee Table
$80 at Amazon

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

Umbra Promenade Bench
$200 at Amazon

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.

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

$67 at Amazon

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).
