Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
The living room is arguably the heart of any home. It's where friends and family gather around a fireplace with wine in hand, where people squeeze together on the couch for a movie, and where everyone makes an appearance on game night. So, if the living room is the center of your abode, that makes the coffee table the glue that holds the most lived in part of the home together.
Dating from the Victorian era, coffee tables are a necessity for every home. Without placing one in your livingroom, it feels like your furniture is incomplete. Why exactly do you need a coffee table in your house, though?
Furnishing a living room is a daunting task, especially if you're on a tight budget. Between finding an affordable couch, choosing the right lighting, and curating a collection of frame-worthy art, it can be challenging to decorate a space that's both stylish and functional without draining your bank account. After all, you want your living room to possess a certain level of comfort while simultaneously looking put together. Enter the affordable coffee table. Although this piece of furniture will undeniably be a focal point, you don't need to spend a lot on this oft-used item to achieve maximum style.
Your coffee table doesn't have to exactly match the other pieces of furniture in your living room, but it must work together with them. Pick up tones of colour that complement one another, or add a metallic frame for a touch of glam.
Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Russian Doll, cozying up for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of any living room.
Choose a coffee table that speaks of the scene you’d like to set in your living room. Be it a collected antique chest, a sleek designer statement or a stylish and functional timber piece, make it the linch pin to assert your style.
