Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
Maybe we're still holding on to the one we purchased for our first apartment years ago, or maybe we invested in a piece we love but have never actually taken the time to style it. Whatever the reason may be, a coffee table is often the most overlooked part of a living room, but it's also arguably one of the most important. It's the one item that's at the center of the space, the piece of furniture that people congregate around, and the space where you can truly infuse some personality in your décor.
If only making the furniture looking more delightful could not make you buy a cocktail table, then its comfortability is going to convince you. The coffee table is the place you put all your hot or cold beverages, light snacks, remote control, magazines or books, whenever you sit in the livingroom. When you are on the sofa there, all these belongings of yours are at the reach of your hand. You can easily grab anything you want, without the need to walk across the room in order to get it. Also, some of the coffee tables have an additional shelf or a few cabinets to store the stuff you would like to keep near. This extra makes these items even more appealing and convenient.
A unique coffee table can be an effective focal point for any living space. When you are able to choose one that is well crafted, it can even inspire the decor around it to a high level. The tables included in this post are high quality and entirely unique, making them a bold choice for anyone looking for something more than a place to put their coffee. We treat coffee tables as a thing of necessity. It's something you put in front of the sofa to be able to put your coffee cup, tv remote or book on and that's the end of the story. However, we sometimes forget that a coffee table can actually bring the whole room together, it can add some flare, accentuate the colors you want and overall surprise you with its functionality. There are tons of unique coffee tables to choose from, Whether you are looking for unusual coffee tables, rustic, classy, contemporary or even retro ones, we’ve got you covered.
The best coffee table for your home does not just come with useful features or built with solid materials, but it is also complements your interior, making it complete.
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.
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.
