Instead of thumbing through a 500-page book on The Civil War, you can enjoy a multimedia version complete with video battle re-enactments, original correspondence between Lincoln and his generals and audio remembrances. Its all in a couple of disks that slip nicely into your coffee tables drawers when not in use. Not only do you save a couple of trees in the process, but, you actually have room on your table to set a cup of coffee. And if you really yearn for a book on coffee tables, you can come close. If you search for "Seinfeld, coffee tables" on the Internet, you may just come across an exclusive DVD Gift Box containing all the episodes of Seinfeld in a handsome collectors box. Yes, you guessed it. In a nod to Kramers crazy idea, its shaped like a coffee table.
Many tables are built at around 16 inches tall, but some of the more modern choices can be closer to a foot tall. If you are looking for a comfortable and homey choice that people can put their feet on while they enjoy their coffee, you may want to choose an upholstered wooden table that will be more durable than a glass top. However, if you do have a smaller living space, it may be a great idea to choose a table style with a glass top that will allow light to penetrate and open up the space as opposed to a solid coffee table. One more benefit to a glass top table for your home is that it will show your beautiful carpet or wooden flooring through to all of your guests.
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.
Function. The way you use your coffee table is a key factor, if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children, look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly, if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling, or climbing on furniture, you may like to consider something with round edges, which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
Until recently, coffee tables were something of an afterthought when it came to designing a living room that was both handsome and comfortable. Hidden in the shadow of magnificent love seats, sofas and chairs, the poor old coffee table was relegated to second place and on occasion, was omitted entirely. This has all changed, thanks in large part to the new designs that have been turned out by manufacturers in recent years that are not only beautiful, but add functionality and warmth to the living room. In fact, a carefully selected coffee table can actually become the focal point of the room, complementing the other pieces of living room furniture while becoming the center of attention in its own right. When choosing a coffee table for your living room, you want to consider two main factors: style and function.
