Quick Styling Tips: - Books are key items, a couple of stacks of coffee table books you love, arranged at one end, or opposite sides. - Trays are key to creating a style when there isnt much happening, either contrast the shape of the table (i.e. round on square, or square on round), or go for the same shape, positioned perpendicular or off centre, place a vase with fresh flowers or a candle holder, and throw your remotes in. - Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours, they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes. - Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. - Fresh Flowers- a sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables, for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round.

Decide on the design too. If you want something simple then go for simplicity in design. If you want something grand try something with intricate designs. If you want to use your unique coffee table to serve guests then consider a lift top or something equally functional. Whatever function or style you need you will be able to find unique coffee tables that will serve that need.

The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. Theyve got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
Terrie Moon Coffee Table, 2018-01-07 12:30:23. 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. Small wonder why then, that families young and old have moved their dining into the living room. And while coffee tables and TV trays performed admirably, designers realized there had to be a better way.

Families that had never even heard of photographer Ansel Adams were suddenly enraptured by his work. After 20 editions of his "Exhibit Format" series were published, more oversized books flooded the marketplace. Books designed for coffee tables ranged from photography and art to history, nature and entertainment. They all had one thing in common: Heavy on imagery and light on content so you could easily thumb through them without becoming so enraptured that you forgot why you were visiting the books owner in the first place.

When looking at coffee tables you want to look for one that wont look lost in the room, overshadowed by other furnishings. Conversely, you dont want one that takes over the room either. As you measure your room and furnishings, remember that the coffee table will be about 18" away from your sofa, love seats and chairs. It needs room to breathe and it needs room for you and your guests to move around it without it getting in the way. Most tables are 16" to 18" high, but some contemporary designs can be lower, so you want to factor that in if shopping for a modern style. Ideally, your table should be one to two inches lower than the height of the seat of your furniture. As far as length, it should be about two-thirds the length of your sofa. If you have an 8 sofa, for instance, your coffee table should be a little more than 5 in length. These are just general rules, however, as the exact scale is also determined by the size of the room and the location of the furniture. Color/finish is important.

Tami Erickson Coffee Table, 2018-01-07 12:19:51. Other Reasons to Consider a Coffee Table. Having a handy spot for food and drink is not the only reason for a coffee table. Lamps can be placed on coffee or cocktail tables. Coffee or cocktail tables can provide the perfect place to play a rousing game of cards or a favorite board game. For families with small children, coffee tables are the perfect height for meals and playtime. Sharp corners might not be the best choice for childrens use, however. Coffee tables are available in an endless array of sizes, materials and colors. Some popular table choices are metal, glass and wood. The size of the coffee table should be in proportion to the size of the room. Larger tables seem most at home in larger rooms. The top of the table can be made of a different material than the legs. Glass-topped tables frequently feature metal frames. Some tables made out of wood have metal accents such as trim and other hardware. Mixing materials can make a more visually interesting table.

Estelle Mcfadden Coffee Table, 2018-01-07 12:18:21. It may seem like no small task to find the perfect coffee table to complement your home decor, especially since it will serve as a focal centerpiece - but a coffee table for your living area can be so much more! Normally, a coffee table is a small table that is low to the ground, which sits in the center of a living room. It is often used to hold coffee, books, magazines, or other items of decoration. Coffee tables became popular in the 1920s, but they actually have a much longer history. Coffee tables were actually found within the Ottoman Empire, and they were normally placed within tea gardens. After World War I, coffee tables became even more popular in the American home, and they were often sold with complete furniture sets instead of by themselves. These days, tables can stand on their own, and they frequently work as an intricate piece to add even more ambiance to your existing interior design.

Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution, and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies, such as knitting, quilting, or needlepoint. Coffee tables come in such a wide variety of styles that it may be hard to choose just one for your living room or family room. A good rule of thumb is to match it with the rest of your rooms decor. Is your room more streamlined, where bold colors and hard lines rule? Then choose a sleek and boldly colored coffee table to complete the look.
