Chances are you grew up with a wood table setting in front of the couch. A wood table can be classic or very modern, ornate or simple - but always a nice addition to your home.
Though you might not necessarily consider a coffee table to be the most obvious focal point of the room, if it is placed central to the seating then it might just be the star of the show – whether intentional or not. Especially against a fireplace backdrop or a feature wall, the coffee table will have the job of tying the room together thematically. Bright, bold coffee tables can be used to complement the room’s accent colours. Or opt for a high gloss finish to create a contemporary look.
Coffee tables can be versatile and can be made from virtually any material. Natural materials such as rock, wood, cork and other organic materials make perfect finishes for coffee tables. When choosing the right finish for your home, consider the wear and tear from your family and children. Hardwoods perform well with little maintenance, but softer wood coffee tables can show scratches and also indentations from pens and other hard objects. Keep this in mind before choosing a coffee table.
The choice of wood for a coffee table is determined by aesthetics, design, application, cost or preference of materials. The architecture of a room, or design of the table makes a difference. Wood for a coffee table can be broken into two basic categories: The use of hardwood provides elegance. Softwood provides rustic ambiance and economy.
Wood coffee tables can add a sense of warmth to any room in your home. They can be either contemporary or more traditional, light or dark, simple or more complex.
If you are considering a new coffee table for your living room and want to make a statement while also ensuring a sound investment on your purchase, there are few choices superior to that of a cherry wood table. Though it is sometimes not as easy to locate as more common woods like Oak, cherry wood has one of the most lustrous grains, and is a guaranteed way to add warmth and elegance to any room's decor. Before you make the choice to purchase a coffee table made from another type of wood, you should first consider the advantages of cherry and what a table made of this wood can do for your home.
