Bold, striking and sophisticated black makes a big impact in a room even when used sparingly. Often relegated to window and door frames, black can be used in more ways than one in the modern living room as well. Making an instant impact even while blending in with the rest of the room, a black coffee table is one such stylish and dare we say, trendy option.

While some fit in effortlessly with traditional, luxurious and even Victorian style living rooms, others add to the sparkle of minimal and contemporary living spaces. Giving your living room an undeniable focal point and even anchoring those draped in neutral hues, a coffee table in black is as versatile as it is adaptable. With that in mind, here are 20 latest finds that are both diverse and dashing –
