Form & Function For Every Space
Coffee tables function for both work and play, holding laptops, drinks, keys, and everything in between. However, they’re often made of cheap materials affecting their durability and quality, or are not considered safe for the home due to off-gassing which can particularly affect pets and children.
So if you’re hoping to upgrade your living room to a more sustainable space, we’ve found coffee tables that are sustainably made and made to last. You’ll find plenty of responsibly sourced materials and eco-conscious practices, and none of the danger or disappointment.
Best For | Storage coffee table
Our Pick | Bento Coffee Table
Price Range | $395–$495
Alongside shelves, rugs, and the internet’s favorite couch, Burrow offers coffee tables that are made in the USA using responsibly sourced walnut and oak. Our pick, the Bento Coffee Table, is inspired by Japanese compartmentalization and acts as both surface and storage.
