Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
With useful and beautiful objects. Keep items within only two categories: essential or loved, styling them in groups together. Hide remote controls in attractive boxes, stack design books neatly together in colour coded piles and top with a beautiful object or accessory.
Whether you're looking for someplace soft to put up your feet or for a formal finishing touch, the right living room coffee table can pull your entire room together.
When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture. Its job is not only to tie the room together but to also meet your daily needs. For instance, if you have children, you'll want to consider rounder edges and perhaps even a soft material like leather for a kid-friendly piece of furniture. On the other hand, if you have a vast collection of books and objects that you'd like to display, a larger table with storage shelves may be more appropriate.
Add interest to your coffee table by varying the heights of collated objects. In this example, the various heights creates a sense of contrast, while the use of colour pulls it all together. Need extra height? Stack books and pop a scented candle on top.
People are now much more heavily invested in making the right design choices for their home and they are far more open to innovative and cutting edge design. The rise in the number of interior design websites and blogs, showcased by The Telegraph, shows that people’s thirst for exploring the latest trends is not going to be disappearing any time soon. This means that even the simplest piece in a room, such as a coffee table, will have been chosen with considerable care.
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.
