Eun-Kyung Jeong December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
In many ways, a coffee table is the centerpiece of your living room. It's the focal point around which we gather, it serves as a conversation starter (thanks to its décor or design), and it anchors the living room as a homey space of leisure and spending time together. Your coffee table—with its physical design or even the books and knickknacks that adorn it—has the power to transform the look and feel of your living space. If you're looking for a refresh to ready your space for holiday entertaining, making over your coffee table is a strong way to start.
Coffee tables with a minimalist touch can enhance the elegant impression in your living room. As well as being a convenience for residents.
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.
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.
Whether you're looking for someplace soft to put up your feet or for a formal finishing touch, the right living room coffee table can pull your entire room together.
The living room is arguably the heart of any home. It's where friends and family gather around a fireplace with wine in hand, where people squeeze together on the couch for a movie, and where everyone makes an appearance on game night. So, if the living room is the center of your abode, that makes the coffee table the glue that holds the most lived in part of the home together.
