Best Supporting Role in the Living Room

All eyes will be on Hollywood for the 85th Academy Awards. While “Best Picture,” “Best Actor”, and “Best Actress” get the lion’s share of attention, let’s not forget the supporting roles who are vital secondary leads talented enough not to upstage the main (leading) actor/actress.

If your living room was nominated as Best Room in Your Home, your sofa would be the lead. And the supporting role would be (drumroll please)… your coffee table, also called cocktail table!

YES, your sofa is definitely the star. But it’s the coffee table that completes the room. So this post is dedicated to those hard-working, under-recognized occasional tables that sit in the middle of all living rooms! Of the hundreds of living room tables in our store, here are a few of the standouts worthy of the red carpet.
