An oval or round-shaped table doesn’t have the sharp edges that a rectangular or square table does. That makes it an excellent choice for households with kids. The difference in the lines also plays a role with the decor of the room. Hard lines lend themselves well to a classic traditional decor. The curved lines of a French provincial piece add a romantic feel to a room.
Sometimes thinking outside the box allows you to find the perfect coffee table that perhaps is not a table at all. Old steamer trunks, cedar chests and ottomans are fabulous alternatives to the typical coffee table. Each option offers its own eclectic appeal. Ottomans for instance can be made of leather or beautiful fabrics that will add some additional visual interest and texture to the room.
Grouping together a collection of dissimilar items and placing them in a beautiful serving or decorative tray creates cohesion to the display. This type of approach is particularly good if your coffee table has an uneven surface (for example, like that of a tufted ottoman) or if your items don’t show well when placed directly on the surface of the coffee table.
Coffee tables come in a range of materials that serve dual functions. A glass top, for example, can create a sense of openness. It blends into the background rather than screaming for attention. Other features can take centre stage. A wooden piece adds warmth to a room with a natural look. A rustic table can make the space seem cosier and more inviting. You can also choose a statement piece. Think of a metal, industrial table with a non-traditional design.
