Stylish, edgy, and minimalist are some of the words you could use to describe a modern coffee table. Modern, or contemporary, coffee tables are available in a variety of different forms. Some seem downright normal, while others would be right at home in an art museum. Modern coffee tables frequently rely on glass tops and metal bases in their construction. If your home décor leans towards contemporary, this style of coffee table might be right for you. When shopping for one, check if it has any shelving or storage options (less likely than other styles). Also give thought to how easy it will be to keep clean, as some of these sacrifice ease of use to overall design.
