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 standard shapes for coffee tables are rectangular, square, and round. Square and round coffee tables take up the most space. These are ideal for homes that have lots of room to work with in front of the sofa or for room where the sofa and coffee table are being used for conversational seating. If your living room is centered around the TV then a rectangular coffee table is likely your best bet. If you like less clutter then it can certainly be worthwhile to consider a coffee table with built-in storage or a storage shelf. Because a TiVo remote and a Playstation controller aren’t exactly the most beautiful things to stare at.
Case in point: the collection of coffee tables below. Ranging from a midcentury modern–inspired design to an eye-catching metallic statement piece to an on-trend rattan table, these wallet-friendly finds add instant style to any living room, no matter its décor.
Coffee tables come to mind right after sofas when you think of living room furniture. And while coffee tables are ubiquitous, there is bewildering variety to choose from.
The level of functionality your coffee table offers depends on how you want to use it. While most coffee tables have a flat surface supported on a base, there are plenty that offer additional features.
First of all, keep in mind that there are a lot of innovative designs, which turn an ordinary coffee table into a piece of art. You only have to choose wisely. Take some interesting or even peculiar item to make a difference. Located right in front of your sofa, the coffee table (or cocktail table) should match it perfectly. Think about the color, the shapes and the size. When it comes to the size of this piece of furniture, it can be high or low and also wide or short. The latter selection is important for your own convenience, while the shapes and colors are essential for complimenting the beautiful décor of your home. As simple as a coffee table may seem, it really puts a certain accent.
