Unique coffee tables with glass tops are an excellent place to put artwork or beautifully designed coffee table books.The glass top enhances what you display and also because of the transparency creates the illusion of more space.
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.
Coffee table sets are available in many designs, shapes, sizes and brand names. Homeowners are spoiled with choices of rectangular, round and oval shapes. Coffee tables are made of various different materials such as wrought iron, stainless steel, marble, and glass. Some are made of high-quality wood like teak and oak. Some coffee tables are added with glass tops. Depending on the theme of the living room, homeowners can choose antique wrought iron coffee tables for the classic Victorian look. Otherwise, those who like simple, modern look can opt for teak or oak coffee tables in rich burgundy or dark brown. Some coffee tables are made of rare materials such as rattan. These give the overall Asian or Tiki look for the living room, especially for beach houses or homes in a tropical country.
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.
Lastly, a coffee table regardless of any material or color does come in many shapes. The most popular shapes are rectangular and round. Choosing a table`s shape should depend on the amount of space in the room, suitability of the shape to the other furniture, and/or whether or not you have young kids at home who might accidentally bump onto rectangular table edges.
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.
