Speaking of materials, coffee tables can come in a wide variety too. There are industrial ones in metal. Materials such as glass combined with either brass or steel offer a more sophisticated look. Whether it is oak, maple, cherry or walnut, wood has its own feel to it. Oak and maple are on the more casual side with walnut and cherry having a more formal look.
Many people shy away from glass tables fearing that the tops might crack easily and that every single fingerprint left will immediately show. While the latter might be true, the glass used in furniture today is able to take tremendous amount of weight. And glass table are such an update in style and elegance. So, if you scroll down and find a square wood and glass coffee table that you really love, don’t think twice.
Don’t fall under the assumption that having a coffee table is a basic requirement for all living rooms. Especially with smaller rooms where you want to leave as much floor space as possible to give the illusion of more space. If having a coffee table is only going to get in the way, and all you need it for is a handy surface for when you’re sitting on the living room sofa, there are other solutions available. Side tables can provide an out-of-the-way surface for drinks, phones, and books.
