While you might think you have to sacrifice your style for comfort now that you have to babyproof your home, think again. We bring you our round-up of kid-friendly coffee tables to consider.

New kid on the block LaForma has a range of not only design-savvy coffee tables, but kid-friendly ones too. We are loving the Jeffs – a metal table with a white marble top; the Storm – a Eucalyptus wood table with a white knitted cotton seat and the Nori – natural oak legs with a white matte top.

Used as extra seating, an ottoman with a flat surface can easily double up as a coffee table. Larger ones, like this MrP Home Regency ottoman, can be used for kids to play on, whether they’re navigating their little toy cars or dressing up their dolls.

Simple designs are often most complementary to modern family homes, and the Nomad ottoman from Block & Chisel echoes this design aesthetic with a fabric top and a stainless steel base.
