A lip edge or tray top on a coffee table is always a smart choice if you have a tendency to spill your coffee or have kids that will be using the coffee table for snacks and drinks. They’re also good if you entertain often and don’t want to worry about red wine getting spilled on your carpet.
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.
Metal tables are sturdy, and can be lighter weight than traditional wood construction. Glass has gradually risen in popularity with modern manufacturing allowing for versatile, striking designs never before possible. While often connected via metal joints or support structures, some tables are 100% glass constructions. Acrylic appears like glass to the naked eye, but allows for the versatility and transparency of glass without the heavy weight and cost.
A coffee table does a lot of work. It needs to hold books, magazines, drinks, food — even games on game night. You might want to put your feet up on it, or the kids might need a place for coloring. Plus it’s usually smack dab in the middle of the room, where you can’t miss it — so make sure it’s a good one.
