The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room and it becomes the most important focal point. So are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is or who you want to project spending some time considering the "presentation" of your coffee table just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room. If you want to create a coffee table display select pieces with a similar theme and group them together then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement to add interest to the centre of the room if you have a minimalist theme create depth by contrasting shapes a simple round vase on a square table for example.
The style shape and size of the table should take into account how the room is decorated (or how you intend to decorate it). Some specialists recommend choosing the table first searching for the one that we love and the one that best stimulates our imagination then depending on it to choose the rest of the furniture. When youre undecided and dont know what style or what colour you should choose for your living room go to the section with round coffee tables choose one that you like the best this may then give you inspiration for the design of the rest of the room. Got your eye on a low and white table? You are likely to have a contemporary minimalist style. You like a massive carved black wood table? Think of classic styling which may be more to your taste. And examples could continue. The fact is that you can choose the table first then build around it.
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.
