Felix Sommer. Coffee Table. August 07th , 2017.
Customers who prefer old fashioned wood, whether it is oak, walnut, teak or pine have a nearly endless variety to choose from. For example they can purchase a table made of lightly varnished wood, like maple or pine, with a beautiful grain and functioning drawers for storage. Large coffee tables can be simple, sturdy with a lower shelf and a polished/stained finish. There are many combinations that can create a table to suit your home. No law says that the coffee table has to be in one piece! You can purchase a table thats actually a few small tables that fit into each other when not in use or are separate tables that can be placed around the living room; these types of tables are called a nest of tables and provide an alternative to having one big table in the middle of the room. The nest of tables is perfect for homes with a small living room.
Next to a sofa, sectional or love seat, one of the most popular pieces of living room furniture has to be coffee tables. Over the years, coffee tables have morphed from a place to set drinks and food while you talk to becoming a surrogate dining room table, thanks to innovations in design. As most homeowners know, the television has become the focal point of many homes. Home theaters and gigantic plasma screens have transformed homes into mini movie theaters.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish. Coffee tables can make or break a room. The right one can make a stylish statement bringing all of your furniture together into a unified whole. However, one element that many people fail to consider is whether their coffee table is actually safe. Most people when buying a coffee table, even a glass one, automatically assume that safety comes as standard. However this is not always the case.
However, you can also go vice versa, especially if you have already arranged a room. Changing an old coffee table, can give your room a whole new lease of life. Add a splash of colour, an ingenious modern table and you get a whole new look. You have a marine or Hawaiian-style room, dominated by blue and green water? There are even tables in the form of fish aquariums so you can make it even more real. Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
