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.
Reclaimed wood coffee tables are always interesting. They hold a lot of history and they breath new life into pieces of wood that have already lived their life once and are now given a second chance.
Similarly, this wood and metal coffee table is a practical choice for a lot of living rooms. Its design is simple but that doesn’t make it boring. In fact, the table is far from being bland considering it has some strong design features.
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.
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?
Elegant and curvaceous, French-influenced furniture and designs with fine lines are sound options for smaller living spaces while, for larger rooms, furniture with a more substantial presence will work equally well.
