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.
Now that you have your coffee table it's time to think about decorating it. The coffee table provides an incredible opportunity for showcasing your design skills. Start out by splitting your table into equal sections. Each section should feature items of varying heights and textures
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.
Can you imagine a world without coffee tables? Not only would we be missing out on the joy of resting a full cup of joe within arms reach, but we'd be down a majorly decorative element in our living rooms and dens.
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.
No matter how big or small your home is, there never seems to be quite enough storage space to go around. That's why it pays to sneak as much extra storage as you can into your space, so you can hide away clutter in style. And since your coffee table is probably always covered in stuff (think magazines, remotes, coasters, various knickknacks...), it only makes sense to get a coffee table that doubles as a place to stow away your stuff. And no, I'm not talking about getting a coffee table with a bottom shelf—I mean a table complete with secret, hidden storage compartments, like pop-up tops and unsuspecting drawers. Your living room will look so much neater, and you'll feel a little bit like a secret agent, so it's really a win-win situation.
