Another point to consider is how many pieces you should get in a set. If you follow a few interior design tips, you can easily figure out how many parts to get.
When you have a smaller space it is important to combine multiple uses in one area. In order to smaller spaces are best for nesting tables. Here you can slide a table or two under a main table when you are not using it. In this case you need a set of two larger or three smaller nesting tables.
An important interior concept that you should consider is balance. It is common to find a coffee table with two matching end tables. This is because if each side of a sofa has the same side table that goes with the coffee table, you create a comfortable balance in the room. For this reason, most coffee table sets are designed in three parts. When opting for a traditional seating area, choose a style that offers visual balance, like the matching coffee table with two end tables.
You can still find sets with just two pieces. These sets are a great way to keep your total cost down. It is common to see the larger of the tables next to the smaller of the tables in front of the sofa. You can create a few unconventional geometry This way the space stays more open due to the gap between the tables.
You can also put the smaller table aside. It is common to find this placement in more artistic and geometric styles as this look goes for artistic and fun placements rather than the traditional idea of visual balance.
