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.
Another convenient feature that some coffee tables offer is called a lift top. With this type of table the entire top raises and pulls towards you so you can use it like you would a desk or dining table while youre seated on the sofa. This is a terrific place to play games work on craft projects use your laptop or enjoy a meal in front of the TV. You can say goodbye to those clumsy unattractive TV trays and say hello to stylish functionality.
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.
