Traditional wooden coffee tables have a warmth and richness to them that is unparalleled. They can either be crafted into intricate & elegant masterpieces or maintain the clean classic lines of traditional living.
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.
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.
