Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
Far gone are the days of lounging around your living room watching Netflix and indulging in hours of self-care. Your lifestyle and your living room changed drastically the day you welcomed your little one into the world. The antique Noguchi coffee table may now be best kept in storage, both for its sake and your children's, and replaced by a more practical solution.
Dating from the Victorian era, coffee tables are a necessity for every home. Without placing one in your livingroom, it feels like your furniture is incomplete. Why exactly do you need a coffee table in your house, though?
The coffee table is one of the most undervalued and yet important pieces of furniture in your living room. If you think about the myriad of uses your coffee table is put to every day, you will appreciate its importance. It's a place for the family to gather, it can be a showcase for your books and ornaments, it's where you can get some last minute work done or where your child does their homework and sometimes it’s where you hurriedly eat your lunch.
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.
The living room is typically the most utilized space in any home, which means it certainly deserves your attention (and your eye for design). Whether you use yours to display your favorite artwork, enjoy movies on a big screen, or host the occasional party, the perfect setup is of the utmost importance.
A coffee table doesn't need to take up tons of space to make an impact. Clean design makes an impression no matter the size.
