But dont think for a moment that lift top coffee tables are one trick ponies. No sir. They are great for doing a little work on your laptop, whether youre getting a big presentation ready for the boss tomorrow or catching up on some last minute homework that you forgot was due. Lift top coffee tables are also ideal for small children. You can set them up with crayons and coloring books or crafts on the table so you can keep an eye on them while you watch a TV show or do the cooking, if your living room and kitchen open out on each other, such is the case with many contemporary floor plans. When shopping for coffee tables, a good place to start is with an online retailer. While you could conceivably drive around all day looking for the perfect coffee table, shopping online is not only faster, but offers greater selection. Within minutes you can find hundreds of coffee tables to choose from in all styles, colors and price ranges. In fact, you can even narrow your search using the built-in search engines on these sites. Enter a term like "lift top coffee table" and youll get back a range of choices. Best of all, many online retailers offer free shipping so you can place your order and never have to think twice about figuring out how youre going to fit that coffee table into the back of your SMART car.
They can be low which are perfect for being placed in front of a suite of furniture, or they can be of a older Victorian model which is that they are higher round table tops, on a narrow support which would be placed bedside a sofa or between some reclining chairs. As said above some glass coffee tables are suited to houses that have a modern décor which can accommodate a table with an elegant smoke glass top for example, supported by modern, X-shaped chrome legs, or a longer table, also made of glass and chrome, with a lower level shelf for storage. Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.
Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact, because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa, enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture, but not so far as to place your cup out of each. Some have been known to use these tables as accent pieces, and place them away from the proximity of sofas and chairs. Quite frankly, there is little point in doing this because these tables have been designed for a specific purpose. If you want accent tables, there are many of them available to choose from online that look more of an accent piece than regular coffee and end tables.
As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate. Many small children have a particular fascination for coffee tables, spending hours investigating the treasures that they can hold. It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks, glassware, china ornaments, nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface. Although all of these factors do require some time and consideration, the benefits of keeping your child safe far outweigh any time or financial costs involved. Remember: where children are concerned safety is always the number one priority. Coffee tables have been around for almost as long as any home furniture item. They continue to be a popular and necessary item. Although you may find some homes that dont have coffee tables, the majority of homes consider coffee tables as important in the living room as the sofa. Whether theyre used to hold a cup of coffee or soda, for a decorative item or to rest your feet, they are a staple of the living room setting.
