Retro coffee tables: size it up

Although coffee tables are functional, their overall appearance is just as important. You’ll find a variety of styles within the retro theme so you can pick the coffee table that suits your room. Before you start browsing the range here at Vinterior, make sure you know exactly how much room you have available.

If there isn’t much space you’ll need a retro coffee table that is more compact. As a general rule, tables with straight edges such as squares or rectangles are more space efficient and they will fit better in a smaller room. To maximise the amount of table space while minimising the footprint, plump for a nest of tables. This provides the option to extend the surface area when needed while tucking away neatly when not in use.

If you’ve got a large empty area for your coffee table, you can afford to choose a circular or oval design. This can help to break up the floor space and make bigger rooms appear more inviting and cosy.

Retro coffee tables: choose your era

Retro coffee tables, like other types of vintage furniture don’t come from one fixed point in time. Spanning many decades retro style has cycled through a variety of different phases, each of which offered its own distinct appeal. If you are a fan of bold prints and highly contrasted colours, the 1970s could be the type of retro vibe for you. Funky and fun, this is a style that likes to be the centre of attention.

For a more subtle look that utilises pastel colours and clean Scandinavian-style lines, the 1950s might be your era. Light-coloured wood and flowing lines were commonly seen along with a more organic approach to design. Nothing illustrates this better than the infamous boomerang shaped coffee table!

The Swinging 60s is an era which is often remembered fondly but it was a period of transition for decor. This means there’s a variety of styles you could adopt from the 1960s. For coffee tables, look for designs made from a combination of wood, metal and glass. Clean, structural lines can be found from Danish modern designers while for those seeking funky fashion, there’s moulded plastic and space age shapes.
