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.
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.
If you are going for a more traditional style in your home décor unique coffee tables made of rich dark wood are what you want to consider. If you want a more trendy contemporary style for your home then you would want coffee tables made of different metals or glass.
