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!.
A round wood coffee table should be a wonderful piece of stylish furniture in your living room that is has a real wow factor. But how do you make sure this actually happens?
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.
Make your coffee table look beautiful and elegant with a simple flower vase or moss hat that adds instant color and pop style to your living room.
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.
