Most coffee tables are designed with drawers for convenient storing and organizing. Some drawers come with locks for privacy and safety. Some coffee tables have matching sofas or settees that are relatively cheaper than buying them separately. Other interesting features that some coffee tables have are removable glass tops. This allows homeowners to remove the glass top, arrange photos or artwork on the table and put the glass back on the tabletop to protect them. Some coffee tables have a compartment under the glass top and this is great as small, decorative items can be arranged in it. For example, pebbles can be arranged in it to achieve the Zen look.
Crafted out of metal or wood in fascinating shapes, modern coffee tables can accompany a wide variety of other furniture in the living room or office. They tend to be small and unobtrusive, making them ideal to be the more abstract neighbor to a traditional furniture setup. They fit in any size of interior, and can provide a great conversation starter. Whether they are used in a simply functional way to provide a resting space for coffee or cocktail glasses, or as a placeholder for fancy books or magazines, they can provide a service for most every decorating scheme.
The first area of a home that guests will see is the living room. Therefore, it is important that the living room be decorated in a theme that portrays the host`s personality. No other furniture describes a homeowner`s individuality better than his or her choice of coffee tables. With manufacturers designing and making more coffee table sets every year, homeowners will never be out of designs to choose.
Keeping this in mind you should determine what size coffee table will best fit your space.
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.
"Wrought" is an Old English term for "work" therefore literally it`s "worked iron". When you buy a wrought iron furniture, you can be sure that artistry is incorporated in that piece because wrought iron is hammered and bent into shape by highly skilled master craftsmen making the iron long lasting and more resistant to corrosion than other types of metals. Wrought iron tables are elegant pieces by themselves but their beauty is enhanced (or they enhance the beauty) of another material paired to them. For instance wrought iron and glass or wrought iron and stone.
