Sveta Petrov December 6, 2019 Coffee Table
Coffee tables don't often drive the design of a room, but they can be a statement piece instead of an afterthought. Equally important as the style you choose, the shape and proportion of your coffee table will make sure it’s a functional team player in your living or sitting room. Here are 10 standouts to help start your search.
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.
When it comes to choosing décor for your home, it's often the simplest choices that end up being the most difficult. A coffee table may seem to be nothing more than a standard piece of furniture – an after-thought once the sofas, chairs and other pieces have been selected. However, after taking into account the many other factors you'll need to consider, it may become a much bigger job than you've anticipated.
An elegant solution that solves your storage needs and gives a sophisticated look to your living room is a sideboard – very grown up.
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.
Sofa is usually the first major piece of furniture we invest in for our living rooms—and, arguably, for our homes. One of the larger pieces of furniture, it's also the one we spend the most time on (other than our beds), and we often have very strict ideas of how comfortable it should be. So it's no wonder that this piece of furniture gets most of our attention when decorating a living room. But there's another important piece of the puzzle that often gets neglected: the coffee table.
