Darleen Chandler. Coffee Table. November 23rd , 2017.
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. It’s not just something to look at. It’s much better if it actually does something to!
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.
Style & Colour: There are many styles available from very modern, to traditional styles, look for something that complements the room and other furnishings, and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material, timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms, it helps to tie the room together. If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly ’matchy-matchy’ easily if you select a matching coffee table, break it up with glass with timber legs, or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table. The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug, flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that won’t compete, if you are not so confident with creating bold displays, select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point, a bolder design will ensure your guests don’t think you’re boring!
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 children’s use, however.
