We started by saying that a coffee table is an opportunity. It’s an excellent chance to optimise your choice with added storage. You can opt for a piece with a shelf underneath the base for magazines or books. Drawers or baskets will give you a place to store serviettes or coasters. You can also extend its functionality with the space underneath the base. Place old suitcases or a trunk under your coffee table. This will add to the charm of the decor. And you’ll get the benefit of the extra room for bits and bobs.
The premise of this approach is that all four corners of the coffee table are weighted equally so that the entire surface feels balanced. All four corners can be styled differently, but their visual weight is the roughly same. Sometimes, one corner have a bit more “pop” than the other corners, especially when flowers or another similar organic material are used. There is also sometimes an added element in the center of the table.
Sometimes a coffee table that isn’t the standard height or width is exactly what a room needs. In this instance a very low coffee table creates a crisp horizontal plane in the foreground, offsetting the long horizontal line of the credenza in the background. A higher table would have blocked the view of the credenza and competed with it; the varying heights add interest.
Modern or contemporary furniture often breaks these traditional rules. You’ll find pieces in a variety of designs in non-standard sizes and shapes. These tables can act as focal points to add to their value. They can complement the mood you want to create with a single piece.
