The first thing that must be taken into consideration is that the coffee table must be made out of wood. A heavy wooden coffee table will increase the life span of tables allowing you to use it for a very longer period of time. Rustic furniture is normally very heavy and bulky to look at therefore you must make sure that the coffee table is heavy in order to assure the fact that it is purely made out of wood.
Designed by Isamu Noguchi over 50 years ago, table resulted from a match made in heaven by sculpture and furniture. This table features an interlocking wood base and a glass top. This is so popular that it`s design is often imitated, so if you`re in the market for one, checkout the glass edge and the wood base for the artist`s signature. The Herman Miller Company is the one who exclusively manufactures Noguchi tables.
Rustic coffee tables are available in various shapes but the most commonly seen shapes are round, oval, square and rectangular. Generally round and oval have similar features, the only difference is that an oval table is able to cater more people than a round table otherwise both the shapes have smooth edges to it which reduces that chances of you and your family from hurting themselves with the corners of the table. Whereas, rectangular and square tables are generally bought by those who have a bigger room as these shapes in table cater more people than a round or oval table can. these tables have rough edges therefore you have to be careful while you walk around it in order to avoid yourself from getting hurt.
The size of your singular coffee tables is also a very important consideration. If you have larger scale furniture you want your coffee tables to be larger in scale also. A room can look odd and unbalanced if the coffee table is disproportionately larger or smaller than your other furniture.
Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
