Small and Large Rectangular Coffee Tables in Different Styles
The rectangular coffee table by janEven is available in different sizes with black hairpin legs or finely brushed stainless steel skids. All living room table variants are available in the colours grey, white and anthracite. The various models also differ in height. The angular table with runners is 45 cm high, while the variants with hairpin legs in black have a height of 43 cm. You can buy the following rectangle tables:
Rectangular Coffee Table in Highest Manufacturing Quality
Careful Selection of Materials
The German-Scandinavian designer had three main priorities when creating his rectangular coffee tables. He wanted to use materials of the highest quality, to create tables that were visually light and elegant, and to rely predominantly on naturally renewable materials. In order to fulfil these goals, the designer opted for a mixture of different, high-quality materials. HPL wood material is used as the upper tabletop with a cleverly offset sub-layer of birch plywood in white, to which the table legs are later attached. This is how the refined floating look of the rectangular design coffee tables is achieved.
Rectangular Top of the Coffee Tables: HPL Wood in Light Grey, White, Anthracite
Particularly the upper tabletop of the rectangular coffee tables was subject to high demands during the design phase. It had to be wafer-thin and at the same time as stable as possible. After all, the resulting table was not only to be elegant and angular, but also highly functional and practical. In the end, the designer found inspiration in the construction of premium exterior facades. In this area, HPL wood fibre boards are increasingly used because they are highly resistant and their surface can be designed flexibly. The designer skilfully made use of these properties and chose the colours white, light grey and anthracite for his rectangular coffee tables to achieve a timelessly modern finish. Underneath the HPL, a birch plywood layer is discreetly mounted to add even more sturdiness to the tabletop and to enable the stunning floating effect of the tables. The two layers are bonded together by hand in Germany and processed to a high standard. The table edges in black are provided with an elegant bevel and the corners of the elegant, floating tabletop are precisely butted.
Rectangular Coffee Table with High-Quality Metal Frame
Brushed Stainless Steel Skids and Elegant Hairpin Legs in Black
You can choose between two metal frame types when you buy a rectangular coffee table from janEven. Depending on the size of the living room table, you can choose between carefully brushed stainless steel runners and elegant black steel hairpin legs. Regardless of the model you buy, the janEven living room table has an ideal height for positioning in front of your couch. Tables with black hairpin legs are 43 cm high, while the models with brushed runners have a height of 45 cm.
The style of the rectangle coffee tables is also influenced by the selected legs. The straight lines and angular design of the stainless steel runners lend the sofa side table a slight Bauhaus look. The rectangular table with graceful hairpin legs, on the other hand, is more reminiscent of the Scandinavian design style thanks to the thin shape and slanted course of the table legs.
Comparison with Other Rectangular Living Room Tables
Marble, Glass, High Gloss & Solid Wood Coffee Tables
Rectangle coffee table with a marble top:
Rectangular coffee tables with HPL tops not only look nice and light, but also actually weigh less than angular tables made of marble or stone. In addition, the designer furniture by janEven with a timeless, matt finish in light grey, white or anthracite can be combined with other colours much more flexibly than a marble coffee table.
Rectangular high-gloss / glass coffee table:
An angular glass table or coffee table with a high-gloss surface is not exactly easy to clean. A sofa table made of glass must not only be cleaned regularly, but also carefully polished to maintain a beautiful appearance. Otherwise, streaks and smudges will quickly make it look dirty. A rectangular coffee table with an HPL tabletop, on the other hand, is super easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. Thanks to the high molecular density of the material, this is also not necessary very often because dirt does not stick to it as easily as it does to a glass top table.
Advantages Compared to a Solid Wood Coffee Table:
Rectangular coffee tables made of solid wood usually have a rather thick, heavy table top. This is often the case with living room tables made of solid oak, acacia or beech, for example. For those who would like a sofa table with a lighter look, the rectangle designer table by janEven with a visually floating HPL top is the perfect choice.
This is why the janEven Coffee Table is Rectangular instead of Round
For a particularly minimalist and stylish look, each janEven coffee table is rectangular or square shaped. It is precisely these straight lines paired with the timeless colours of the tables that make them into contemporary pieces of furniture suitable for every home or office.
A round coffee table, on the other hand, is ideal for creating a striking contrast to other angular furniture. In some cases, however, people opt for a round living room table for other reasons unrelated to design. Tables without corners, for example, are sometimes chosen by parents of young children to reduce the risk of injury by bumping into the coffee table.
Add a classy accent to your living room with a rectangular coffee table by janEven for more visual harmony in your decor.
Which Rectangular Table Colour for a Sofa in Black, Brown or Grey?
Low Rectangular Coffee Table with an Ideal Height for Your SofaRectangular coffee tables that are intended for placement right in front of your living room sofa should ideally be as high as your couch seat. As a result, you can usually find sofa tables with a height of 40 - 50 cm online or in retail shops. For optimal use as a coffee table, the rectangular models by janEven are all either 43 cm or 45 cm high. Depending on the chosen leg type of the tables.
Ideal Position for a Rectangular Living Room Table
Rectangular coffee tables positioned in front of your sofa should be no more than 1/3 to 1/2 as wide as your 2-3 seater. Otherwise they quickly look clunky and take up too much space in the living room. There must always be enough distance to other pieces of furniture so that you can move around the room freely without bumping into the corners of the table. At the same time, the sofa table must be within reach of the couch so that it can be used practically as a shelf. The following distances are considered ideal:
- Distance between rectangle coffee table and sofa: 45 cm
- Distance to other pieces of furniture / to the TV: 80 cm
Buy a Minimalist Rectangular Coffee Table or one with Additional Functions?
Each janEven coffee table is rectangular or square shaped with clean lines and clear contours. The quality materials used and the refined construction make them highly functional pieces of furniture as well. If you are looking for an angular sofa table with additional functions, you must generally be prepared to compromise on the design.
Rectangular coffee table with extra shelf: Some living room tables have an extra shelf under their conventional tabletop. This surface can be useful for discreetly storing accessories such as the remote control. However, if too many items are stored here, they can quickly get lost. A glass top will offer you a clear view of the shelf, but it can also make the table look untidy.
Storage space / drawer: A rectangular sofa table with drawers offers another way of storing items in the living room inconspicuously. However, the additional storage space usually goes hand in hand with a chunkier design. Keep this in mind when buying your rectangular coffee table.
Height-adjustable rectangular coffee tables: If a rectangular table is used as a sofa table, it does not have to be height-adjustable. Because, as mentioned above, 40 - 50 cm is considered an ideal height. Only if the coffee table is also to be used as a dining table (or similar) can a height adjustment be worthwhile. Depending on the integrated technology, however, this function can lead to defects over time.
Angular sofa table with castors: If you are looking for a mobile living room table that can easily be moved when cleaning, for example, you can also buy a rectangular coffee table with castors. However, it is important that the table is equipped with a brake so that it remains stable and secure during use.
Extendable / foldable: A space-saving solution with a larger surface area is a rectangular coffee table that can be expanded or folded out. After each use, it can be folded back up to allow free passage. Such a table can be useful for small living rooms / flats, but when choosing a model, you should carefully consider the type of integrated technology, as it may be susceptible to defects.
