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.
The coffee table in the living room is the anchor of your living room, making a design statement and functioning as a visual focal point. This is also one of the messiest surfaces in your home.
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.
