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.
Round Coffee Tables - The features of this item is much similar to the square table. Even they are available in a wide variety of textures colors sizes and materials. They are usually used in a sparse room where there are bright colors and little furniture.
There are so many styles of unique coffee tables: Aquarium coffee tables black leather coffee tables mosaic coffee tables bamboo coffee tables oversized ottoman coffee tables L shaped coffee tables clock coffee tables waterfall coffee tables fire pit coffee tables and many more.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms but are more difficult to maintain and if there are young children in the house they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour but again it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests a higher one might be more suited because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
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 known as accent tables because they can accentuate a rooms decor. If the living rooms theme is for example wild flowers accent tables can hold some well placed vases full of fresh cut or dried wild flowers. They can also display home decor and art pieces that are part of the wild flower theme. In this way these accent tables pull a room together - decor-wise.
