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.
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.
If you don’t want the coffee table to be the focus of the room, choose one with a glass top and a finish that blends with others in the room, as in this example. This will keep the eye interested in all the items in the room, not just one layer of the design.
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.
