Coffee Tables for a Coastal Living Room

Hello everyone! We just got back from a week at the beach house. The weather was perfect and we had some real quality time with family and friends. It was lovely.

The basement is coming along nicely.  I've been thinking about moving some pieces from the living room to the basement and upgrading the living room in the process. The coffee table is at the top of the list. The current coffee table is another survivor of Hurricane Sandy. It's not in the best shape (okay, it was underwater for a couple of days so that's understandable). I would also like to move away from bright white furniture in the living room (white will work well in the basement) and add some more warm wood tones. Here's what the room looks like now:

In trying to figure out what might work, I found some great inspiration in the Arhaus catalog. Arhaus has a large selection of living room furniture including some nice choices of warm wood coffee tables that I think could work with my coastal decor. Check these out:

I love the idea of this nesting coffee table. It doesn't take up too much room, but the smaller tables can be pulled out when needed.

This trunk has plenty of storage space--very practical. This is actually in antique brass rather than wood, but this one is similar in style and in warm, java color wood.

This is a combination of distressed wood and an iron base. It's square and would work well with the proportions of my sectional. Here's another square coffee that has a wood base and a stone top.

I like the idea of a round table. This one is made of marble on a metal base. For a different look, check out this round coffee table with an antique oak base and a zinc top.

This option is made of antiqued, washed teak. Because it can be used outdoors as well as inside, it would be extremely sturdy and stand up well to wear and tear in the living room.

Finally, this option is a bit unconventional, but I really like the texture and organic feel of this petrified wood table.I actually think it would fit in quite well with coastal decor.

So what do you think? Would a wood tone coffee table be the way to go in this room?
