In addition to setting down drinks, phones, books, remote controls, and whatever else, you may even like to put your feet up in front of the TV from time to time! Upholstered coffee tables, or even a firm ottoman, can provide a handy surface as well as somewhere comfortable to put your feet up. An added benefit to an ottoman is that you can fill it with blankets and cushions – perfect for those colder evenings when you want to get cosy on the couch with a good book or a movie!.
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.
However you decide to style your coffee table, just make sure that the coffee table itself is still visible beneath everything and doesn’t become too overburdened! What’s the point in having a beautiful coffee table if you’re going to hide it away?
Aside from the great looks that a solid wood coffee table has, it is also very functional in the sense that it can be transformed into a repository of some household items. Many of the wooden tables that are used as coffee desks feature a number of storage shelves that can hold items like magazines, TV remote, and a whole lot more. In fact, some of them come with a drawer or two that can be used to keep the keys or other important items.
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.
