The height is just as important as the length of the table, and should fall no more than 2-inches below the sofa cushions and never higher than the cushions.

On a yacht it is important to consider the weight and heft of the table as well. Many marine manufacturers design specifically for the durability and stability needed on a seafaring vessel.
From there, consider the shape that looks right in the space. A square or rectangular table won’t look right with every sofa or furniture arrangement. Often a circle, oval or even a more organic and fluid shape works best. Sketch the room out or use some of the new apps on the market to try different tables and see how they change the aesthetic of the space.
Here are some examples of beautiful and unique coffee tables from our projects at PKD:
