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.
Why is the statement coffee table an excellent choice? Because compared to larger ticket living room items such as a sofa or media console, it can more easily be switched out as trends come and go.
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.
A coffee table without a shelf or drawers allows more of the floor space to be on show. This version has a washed oak finish, which keeps the wood tones of the scheme consistent. It can be paired with a matching armchair with turned legs.
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.
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!.
