Coffee Table. Tuesday , January 23rd , 2018 - 10:17:29 AM
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.
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.
