The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee choose a small simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines flower vase bowl etc. then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells stones photos etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes which usually is stored underneath one another and occasionally when the situation requires all three tables can be used.
Style & Colour There are many styles available from very modern to traditional styles look for something that complements the room and other furnishings and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms it helps to tie the room together. If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly "matchy-matchy" easily if you select a matching coffee table break it up with glass with timber legs or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table. The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that wont compete if you are not so confident with creating bold displays select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point a bolder design will ensure your guests dont think youre boring!
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.
