The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms and although we all have one in our home few know that coffee tables as the Ottoman Empire originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now all professional designers acknowledge their importance. Theyve got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
Coffee tables are also used as end tables in some homes. Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies such as knitting quilting or needlepoint.
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.
