Darleen Chandler. Coffee Table. September 08th , 2017.
Size is Important. You should be able to pick up and set down a cup without excessive bending or stretching. The average occasional table stands around 16-20 inches high. Then you have the length to think about. A table the full length of a sofa would be too long - about 50 - 60% of the sofa length works well. Round, square or oval it’s really up to your personal preference, but if you want to be controversial, you can do a lot with angles and curves, and there is no reason why they cannot be combined. So lose the idea that your table must be rectangular, round or oval.
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.
However, you can also go vice versa, especially if you have already arranged a room. Changing an old coffee table, can give your room a whole new lease of life. Add a splash of colour, an ingenious modern table and you get a whole new look. You have a marine or Hawaiian-style room, dominated by blue and green water? There are even tables in the form of fish aquariums so you can make it even more real.
Provocative but Functional. Coffee tables can be a fusion of the living and the abstract - a combination of aquarium and modern art. An ottoman combining storage, coffee pot and fish - though not fish for eating but for discussion. It is a living item of furniture that is both beautiful and thought provoking. A provocative item of furniture is sure to keep the conversation flowing over coffee. To put it in simpler terms, it should be a piece of furniture that people notice and comment upon, but that can also be used for setting down snacks, coffee cups and drinks glass. That, after all, is its primary raison d’être. Above all else,this type of table must be functional and the fish should not get in the way of the cups, nor should the books leave no room for the plates.
