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.
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.
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.
