To see what size of coffee table will work best for your room, first mark its footprint with painter’s tape. That will allow you to see the scale of the piece in the room and how that affects the surrounding furniture. If you have a very large room and a large coffee table, you can break up the scale of the table by flanking it with pairs of ottomans or benches, as in this example.
Speaking of materials, coffee tables can come in a wide variety too. There are industrial ones in metal. Materials such as glass combined with either brass or steel offer a more sophisticated look. Whether it is oak, maple, cherry or walnut, wood has its own feel to it. Oak and maple are on the more casual side with walnut and cherry having a more formal look. Consider using Lucite, it will make your table appear to be floating in the room and it offers up a more modern appeal.
Whenever I see a flat surface in my home, I feel like it’s begging to be decorated! And the coffee table is one of my favorite places to play and experiment with various decor items and colors. When seated in a living space, the coffee table becomes a focal point and there’s noting like a beautiful vignette to help set the tone of the 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.
