Darleen Chandler. Coffee Table. February 12th , 2018.
The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. They’ve got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
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.
The Best Coffee Table for You. While that provocative coffee table might look fabulous, if also somewhat unusual, and appear to have been chosen with no apparent reasoning, that could be far from the truth. It takes a good eye to select something that provokes discussion, and it must also be selected to fit in perfectly to the space available for it. Here are some tips on that point: Check the seating height of all the seating in your living room or lounge. Your table must be of a suitable height and if your seating heights are irregular you may need two such tables - one for each set of furniture. There is nothing wrong with using a coffee table only for one sofa which would resolve that problem.
Coffee tables serve a variety of uses. Whilst some are used only for the display of ornaments, in many homes they have replaced the family dining table. What functions your table must fulfill should be one of the key considerations when you are selecting it. You must decide whether you need storage and if so whether you want the items you are storing to be on public display or hidden from view. Lift top coffee tables sound like a good idea but are only really useful if you intend to keep the surface clear. Otherwise each time that you need to remove or replace an item you have to clear the top of the table first. Often a coffee table with a drawer or shelf can be a more convenient choice.
