Estelle Mcfadden. Coffee Table. December 20th , 2017.
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.
Choosing a coffee table style. The perfect coffee table complements your décor, of course. Ideally, you want to select a table that is in the same style as the rest of your furnishings. For instance, a country inspired design may stick out like a sore thumb in a contemporary furnished living room. Conversely, a stainless steel and glass table may look out of place in a home decorated in a tropical style, or one that features highly ornate furnishings. Unless you are an experienced interior designer, you may want to stick to with a table that is in the same general style of the rest of your furnishings, i.e., traditional with traditional, contemporary with contemporary and so on.
The lift top is also great if you like to enjoy popcorn and some Junior Mints with your movie. Everything can be arranged on the lift top so everyone has ready access to it. In no time at all you can be watching the latest blockbuster without shelling out $25 for a drink, a bucket of popcorn and some nachos. 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. Lift top coffee tables are also ideal for small children. You can set them up with crayons and coloring books or crafts on the table so you can keep an eye on them while you watch a TV show or do the cooking, if your living room and kitchen open out on each other, such is the case with many contemporary floor plans.
