May 7, 2019

If you’ve ever spent time shopping around for kid-friendly coffee tables — one that doesn’t have sharp corners or glass or delicate materials that would never stand a chance against a Matchbox car — then you know just how difficult it is to find a coffee table that’s stylish, affordable, and won’t be destroyed in five minutes.

Three Tips for Finding a Kid-Friendly Coffee Table

What are some tips for finding a kid-friendly coffee table?

There are a few things to look for if you’re in search of a table that’ll work for adults and toddlers alike.

  • A round or oval shape: For young kids, many rectangular or square-shaped tables are an accident waiting to happen. Look for round or oval-shaped tables instead.
  • Soft or natural materials: If your kids are really into climbing or prone to getting bumps and bruises, opt for coffee tables made of soft or natural materials. Leather or fabric ottomans are great options, as are coffee tables made of natural materials like seagrass and rattan.
  • Storage space {Bonus!}: This last one’s optional, but how great would it be to have a coffee table that can hold a drink and store whatever kid crap you want to shove out of sight? Cool coffee tables with storage do exist — in fact, I own one and happen to love it.

Here are 25 of my favorite picks for kid-friendly coffee tables.
