Adalicia Lefevre. Coffe Table. June 19th, 2017.
With todays continual focus on interior design, coffee tables continue to play a focal point in the world of furniture. Many of todays furniture come in a wide range of designs, ranging from the more traditional styles, with a antiquity effect, to a more unique design, with a more modernist feel as well as many including storage. This wide range of coffee tables has meant that todays items are made from a wide range of materials.
The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television, and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine, its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room, and it becomes the most important focal point. So, are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high, or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak, with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is, or who you want to project, spending some time considering the "presentation" of your coffee table, just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room. If you want to create a coffee table display, select pieces with a similar theme and group them together, then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers, or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear, look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement, to add interest to the centre of the room, if you have a minimalist theme, create depth by contrasting shapes, a simple round vase on a square table for example.
Coffee tables are also known as accent tables because they can accentuate a rooms decor. If the living rooms theme is, for example, wild flowers, accent tables can hold some well placed vases full of fresh cut or dried wild flowers. They can also display home decor and art pieces that are part of the wild flower theme. In this way, these accent tables pull a room together - decor-wise.
So, after youve dreamt about what you want, write down what it is you want your new piece of furniture to do for you. Do you want it to be simple, stylish and elegant and mainly to look good? Or do you want it to be functional and enable you to eat off it in the morning or even for dinner? its also really important not to get distracted by a round wood table that looks amazing but doesnt fulfill all your requirements. For example, many are quite low so great for putting magazines on or your feet up but not good for eating off of. The great thing about round wood coffee tables thought is that there are designs to fit all your needs.
