Glass coffee table - traditionally glass coffee tables were looked upon as a sign of luxury. This furniture is common among the upper class of society. However with time it became easier to construct these tables and they were offered at reasonable prices that were affordable to almost everyone. The best part about glass tables is their sophisticated and refined look. These tables are suitable with almost every type of décor. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Durability however can be an issue at times but there is no comparison to its elegance.
Coffee tables add pizazz to your decor by making a room feel complete. When you add these tables to your living room or family room you can create a distinct coziness to your seating areas. Some living or family rooms can be overwhelming in size. By adding a couple coffee tables near a sofa or a chair combination they create mini seating areas which in turn foster a more comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
Function The way you use your coffee table is a key factor if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling or climbing on furniture you may like to consider something with round edges which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
Coffee tables come in such a wide variety of styles that it may be hard to choose just one for your living room or family room. A good rule of thumb is to match it with the rest of your rooms decor. Is your room more streamlined where bold colors and hard lines rule? Then choose a sleek and boldly colored coffee table to complete the look.
Coffee tables are also known as accent tables because they can accentuate a rooms decor. If the living rooms theme is for example wild flowers accent tables can hold some well placed vases full of fresh cut or dried wild flowers. They can also display home decor and art pieces that are part of the wild flower theme. In this way these accent tables pull a room together - decor-wise.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
