12 Best Convertible Coffee Table to Dining Table / Transforming Coffee Tables

12 Best Convertible Coffee Table to Dining Table / Transforming Coffee Tables

A list of the best convertible coffee table to dining table designs and modern transforming coffee tables that convert to dining tables that are perfect for small spaces.

Minimalist design principles and space-saving / space-efficient design strategies are becoming ever more popular. According to Google Trends, the term “minimalism” has been trending for the last six month — and looks like it’ll continue to grow. For those who don’t know, the minimalist style of living (i.e., minimalism) is defined by a low-impact and low-consumption form of living, whereby, as a consumer, you choose and buy things (i.e., products) that are essential. Effectively, you reject conspicuous consumption. In terms of home design practices, this style tends to favor modern aesthetics and furniture that is built to last and be space efficient. That is, as it relates to this post, instead of having a dining table and coffee table in one space, you may want to consider combining them into a transforming or convertible coffee table that doubles as a small dining table or work space. In this curated collection, you’ll find some of the best convertible coffee table to dining table designs and modern transforming coffee tables. We focused on selecting pieces with a folding or rotating joint and those that have a functional, lift-top surface that can turned into a modern work or dining space. To maximize utility, we also looked for modern coffee tables that are built with organized and hidden storage areas. Overall, we wanted to share some of the most useful and versatile coffee tables we could find. If you’re looking to move into a small space or are simply looking into functional, minimalist furniture, this post may be a good place to look and buy your furniture. If you’re simply looking for a cool and contemporary coffee table, we also created curated lists of the best modern glass coffee tables and best coffee tables under $200.

Modern, Minimalist Design, Transforming X Table, Lowers / Rises in Seconds from Coffee Table to Full Dining Table for 4-6 People, in Black and Steel.
By: Corner Housewares

Editor's Note

The ‘transforming X table’ is perhaps the most useful and versatile coffee table / dining table combo if you’re looking for a modern and space-saving piece of furniture for a small space. It’s simple to use and setup, and converts into a dining table — or back to a coffee table — in a few seconds with no assembly pieces needed. Built with an adjustable ‘X’ lift mechanism, the surface can easily be risen or lowered for the desired height; once a height is set, the frame simply locks in place. It’s helpful to note that it can lock at any position up to 30″, which is ideal for a small dining table. Additionally, to help make this piece more of a dining table, the table surface is expandable and a second leaf can be easily setup to seat 4 people comfortably (and 6 people not so comfortably). Overall, given the price point, make, modern aesthetic, and functionality, this is one of the best convertible coffee table to dining table designs in our list.

Modern, Space Saving Charcoal Grey Rectangle Folding Dining Table, Designed with Wood Veneer Finish Top with Powder Coated Metal Frame.
By: Matrix

Editor's Note

Now, this modern furniture piece is a bit distinct from the convertible coffee table to dining table designs that we’re featuring in this collection — it falls more in the category of modern transforming / folding dining tables for small space. Constructed with two folding leaves, this table can be easily placed along a flat wall as a console table or entryway table when not in use, and can be easily converted into a full dining table when both leafs are expanded. It’s crafted with a wood finished, painted black, and is a great fit if you’re looking to maximize space in an otherwise smaller apartment.

Modern, Minimalist Design Wood Lift Top Storage Coffee Table, Work Desk and Dining Table, Constructed with Sandy Brown Stained Wood and a Steel Frame.
By: Great Deal Furniture

Editor's Note

You may have noticed that the majority of the convertible coffee table to dining table designs in this curated collection have only one, joined section that is able to be lifted or expanded. Although that design can be useful for turning a coffee table into a dining table, it doesn’t allow for much versatility and customization. This modern piece, however, is built with two separate lift-top surface, allowing one to be used for eating and dining, while the other one can be used for decor or as a small work or laptop desk. Like the other models in this ‘best of’ list, this coffee table is also built with a few hidden storage areas for books and other home products. In terms of look and feel, we’re fans of the homemade aesthetic, letting the sandy brown stained wood speak for itself. Overall, an awesome, cheap buy at a relatively lower price point.
