Uta Moeller Coffee Table, January 28th , 2018. 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.
Uwe Jager Coffee Table, January 29th , 2018. Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase. Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed.
Felix Sommer Coffee Table, January 28th , 2018. 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.
Uta Moeller Coffee Table, January 29th , 2018. Besides the fireplace, the focal point of a living room is the coffee table. This type of living room tables descended from the European tea table, they usually sit before a sofa and are used to hold knick knacks and magazines as well as coffee cups, and can be made of elaborately carved wood, Plexiglas, glass and chrome, or wicker and bamboo. Most coffee tables are different, to suit peoples individual preferences and tastes. Wooden tables suit most homes as they bring a sense of elegance and comfort to a room whereas glass tables usually only fit into a living room where the décor is modern and minimalist.

These are the perfect solution for couples or families that cant afford a large home.
Anja Unger Coffee Table, January 28th , 2018. 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.
Ralph Trommler Coffee Table, January 29th , 2018. 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.
Marco Klein Coffee Table, January 29th , 2018. Drawers And Lift Top Lids: Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children. Very often, particularly in the case of wooden coffee tables the lid can be very heavy. Because of this there is always the possibility of small children trapping their fingers. If you select a table of this kind it may be necessary to secure the top until your children are older to prevent injury. Drawers are another hazard for small children. Fingers are easily pinched and trapped. As with so many other areas of the home safety features may need to be incorporated, such as drawer locks, in order to keep your child safe.
Kerstin Schwarz Coffee Table, January 28th , 2018. 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.
Marco Klein Coffee Table, January 28th , 2018. 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.
