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.
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.
Unique Coffee Tables And Functionality. There are so many styles of unique coffee tables: Aquarium coffee tables, black leather coffee tables, mosaic coffee tables, bamboo coffee tables, oversized ottoman coffee tables, L shaped coffee tables, clock coffee tables, waterfall coffee tables, fire pit coffee tables, and many more. And when you look for a unique table you definitely want to keep in mind what functions you want it to perform. Its not just something to look at. Its much better if it actually does something to!
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.
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.
