According to Style at Home in an article called “Size matters“, “the standard height for coffee tables is from 16 to 18 inches, but may go as high as 21 inches. A higher table is a smart choice if you entertain frequently so that guests don’t have to bend too much to set down their drinks”
I knew there was a reason I prefer taller coffee tables.
This one is large and high but because of the combination of bevelled glass with gilded walnut and antique metal finishes, it doesn’t appear to take up much space. When the party heats up you’ll be glad to know that this glass top is double tempered in case wobbly guests bend down too much or just drop from a standing position.
