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.
The surface material of a coffee table is the part you’ll interact with most on a day to day basis. Glass top tables are incredibly popular for a reason: they add visual space, a luxurious sheen, and are stain and water damage proof. Whether metal, wood, or other construction, a glass top adds a sparkle to any table. Wood top tables feature the most rich, sensuous feel of any table. Whether treated, natural, painted, or even aged, a wood surface imparts a timeless, warm feeling in any space.
The first element you’ll want to consider is the construction material of your coffee table. The only options used to be wood or metal, but nowadays the choices expand far beyond that simple pair. Modern manufacturing allows for glass, metal, and even acrylic tables in a bewildering variety of shapes. Wood construction is, as always with tables of any variety, the most common construction element. Versatile, warm, timeless, and rich, wood can be used in the vast majority of shapes, styles, and sizes.
The standard height of the piece runs between 40cm and 45cm. It should be at the same height as the cushions of your sofa. You can opt for a taller table if it has extra padding. The goal is that you should place your food or drinks down on the table rather than up and over. Take into account any extra height of a lip on the edge of the table too.
