Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
Coffee tables are available in many different shapes. While the shape of the room can play a role in choosing a coffee table, you must pay attention to your seating configuration more than anything else.
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.
Coffee table styling is a bit of an art. Since coffee tables usually have prominent places in living rooms, it's important that they look good, but it's equally important that they function in the way they're supposed to.
Want to make a small living room look less crowded? Opt for a glass coffee table, which frees up visual space with its sleek, see-through design so that the rest of the room's decor shows through.
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.
Position your coffee table close to your sofa or armchairs so it forms both a useful surface and an anchor to a conversational arrangement of furniture. Keep it within reach but allow enough space to come and go from seating.
