As Beach style is breezy style. It's natural colors and soft blues. It's a little shabby, a little chic, but mostly it's about keeping things light, airy, and casual. Whether you live on the beach or in town, you can create the feel of the ocean with your decor.

We're focusing on beach-styled coffee tables in this post and have found eleven great choices for any beach-inspired decor. From classic rectangular shabby chic with rattan baskets to a truly one of a kind round glass and actual teak root, these tables will make a fabulous focal point for your living room. For ease, we've separated them into sections by shape below.
Rectangular Beach Style Coffee Tables
Rectangular coffee tables are always a great choice. They mirror the shape of the sofa, take up a minimum of space, and allow for plenty of surface area for your guests to place drinks or cell phones. Some of them even come with lower shelves, which are a great place to showcase a bowl with your beachcombing efforts.
Weathered Turquoise Coffee Table
This is a charming hand-made table out of reclaimed wood. It measures 40L x 20w x 18h. Because of the hand-done nature of this piece, no two are exactly alike, and all will feature from knot holes and nail holes and general imperfections. The table is painted a gorgeous Carribean turquoise on the sides that is sanded through to show peeks of wood color. The top is left the natural color of the wood. Fun and deliciously shabby for the ultimate beach living room.
Vintage Coffee Table With Shelf
This classic design brings to mind the wooden boardwalks of Atlantic coastal towns. The slatted lower shelf in white and the distressed wood top are framed by fence-like x's on the ends of this functional table. Keep a basket on the lower shelf for magazines, remotes, or couch throws. This table is 47.25L x 23.62D x 18.8H.
Raw Edge Natural Coffee Table
Here we have another gorgeous artisan-made piece. The raw-edged wood slab is reminiscent of driftwood found floating on the waves, and the cool copper piping legs remind us of ship's hardware. As this is handcrafted, each piece will vary slightly. The natural wood pieces are approx 1 3/4" in thickness after finishing. This piece has a lower shelf, perfect for storage.
(Note that some assembly is required)
Driftwood Rustic Coffee Table With Storage Baskets
Driftwood colored wood and seagrass woven baskets make this coffee table an easy choice for your coastal decor. Furthermore, this coffee table does come in other colors of wood, including white, but this driftwood screams of the salt and the sand. It will require some assembly but comes complete with the two baskets shown. Measurements are 18"H x 40"L x 22"D.
Weathered Ocean Blues Coffee Table
This distressed beauty has the perfect colors for a beachy living room. As you can see, several soft shades of blue, combined with a distressed white base, are the epitome of the shabby chic look that works so well in many beach homes. The chunky legs make this a sturdy piece as well. It is made of solid fir wood and is 48"L x 24" D x 19.25"H.
Some assembly is required.
Square Beach Style Coffee Tables
If you're working with a small sectional or have a unique arrangement of chairs with your sofa, you may opt for more of a square shape for your coffee table. We've found three unique possibilities for you that work well in coastal decors.
Chunky Teak Coffee Table
This bold piece of finished plantation teak wood is sure to stand out in your space. It's chunky and robust and is so commanding. The top is finished with a unique pattern of circles cut into the top. The table comes assembled and is 27.5" on each side and stands 18" high.
Woven Seagrass Coffee Table
Genuine seagrass and abaca fibers make up the woven top of this double-tiered coffee table. Because of the natural fibers, the color of the top may vary slightly from piece to piece. The bottom is solid mahogany and is finished with a double coat of clear lacquer to keep moisture at bay, which is an excellent feature for beach furniture.
This dune inspired piece comes fully assembled. Take it out of the box and place your collection of shells on the bottom shelf.
Tumbled Coconut Shell Solid Coffee Table
This is a truly unique piece. This solid wood base is covered in a mosaic of tumbled coconut shell tiles in a weathered granite color. It's the color of the sand and shells by the sea. At 35" long x 18" high x 24" deep, it's a larger piece. Even better, it comes fully assembled for ease of decorating.
Round And Oval Beach Style Coffee Tables
Round coffee tables are great to gather chairs around for long nights talking while the ocean waves crash outside your windows. You know your style, and part of it is breaking up the rectangles. These oval and round beach-inspired coffee tables will provide some curvy alternatives to the straight lines.
Alaterre Driftwood Oval Coffee Table
Driftwood and surfboards inspire this double-decker beauty. Add to it the softly curved legs and driftwood color, and you've got the perfect look for your decor. Did we mention function? At 48" high, 24" deep, and 18" tall, with two shelves, it works for both storage, display, and usefulness.
This table is made of cedarwood and requires some assembly to put it together.
Miramar Elm Wood Cutout Coffee Table
If you want to really wow the neighbors, check out this round elmwood coffee table. Made to look as if it were a hollowed-out piece of log, this coffee table functions as foot stall and drink holder. The soft wooden color and grain bring in the natural, pale, wood color that works so well in coastal decor.
This piece comes fully assembled and is 39.4" in diameter and 17.1" high.
Teak Root Glass Topped Coffee Table
If you're looking for a real showstopper, we've found it for you. This is a genuine teak tree root, dug up, and sanded by artisans. Each piece is unique and individual, and unlike the driftwood roots, it emulates, very sturdy. The roots are finished with a clear lacquer, and each table comes with a 55" diameter, 3/8" thick piece of glass to serve as the tabletop. You will stand out of the crowd with this gorgeous coffee table.
