Sveta Petrov 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.
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.
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.
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.
A good coffee table is a practical piece that can pull together a whole room. More sculptural designs make a style statement and provide a focus within a large space.
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.
