Traditional wooden coffee tables have a warmth and richness to them that is unparalleled. They can either be crafted into intricate & elegant masterpieces or maintain the clean classic lines of traditional living.
To make your coffee table more versatile, find one with extra leaves that pull up on all sides. Each leaf can complement the center square by holding a vase, book, or TV remote. At parties, guests will be pleased to rest their plates there.
A coffee table is one of the things you could easily build yourself if you wanted to. Consider the classical approach: a simple table with a wooden top. There are plenty of things you can customize about such a piece of furniture. For example, you can give it any type of legs you want. The wooden top can be customized as well.
Mid-century modern style abounds in this simply-chic coffee table. Crafted of solid and manufactured wood in a rich walnut finish, this table strikes a clean-lined rectangular silhouette on four tapered square legs with gold metal end caps. Two open cubby shelves are great for housing coffee table books or issues of your favorite magazines, while the expansive tabletop provides a perfect platform for drinks and appetizers at your next get-together.
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.
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.
