Wood gives your coffee table a beautiful finish, which is probably why it’s been a favourite in the lounge room for eons. But as beautiful as it looks, there are downsides to the natural material. Wood is easily damaged by changes in temperature, light and moisture. It’s easy to scratch and stain.
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.
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.
