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!
There you are. Sitting in a living room or waiting room with nothing to do. And there it is. Sitting on one of the coffee tables is that voluminous book youve seen so many times before, filled with lovely photos of classic cars, the Grand Canyon or the moon. You cant help yourself. You have to look at it. Blame David R. Bower for your weakness for coffee table books. When David was the Executive Director of the Sierra Club, he must have seen an opportunity in the 1960s when coffee tables could be found in every living room and waiting room in America. These large expanses of wood begged to be used for something more than just a cup of coffee and David had the answer: The modern coffee table book.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
The purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward, at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee, magazines, and remotes, it may also moonlight as a dining table, a desk, a childrens everything table and a footrest, or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you?
Your kids will definitely enjoy the lift top coffee table. Playing games or doing homework becomes easier now that the kids dont have to sit on a hard floor or sit on their knees to reach their things. They can simply pull up a chair or stool and get to work! This is great for parents who want to keep an eye on their children by letting them do their homework or play their games in the living room instead of being out-of-sight in their bedroom. And another great thing about these functional coffee tables is that they come in every style from traditional to country so they fit into any style of home décor.
