However, in recent years, interior design has moved towards creating a more modernised feel to homes and this has also affected the materials used to create Coffee Tables, for example, more tables are created using metal, glass and plastic than ever before. Whilst glass has often been included in traditional wooden tables, in recent years more and more items are being made prominently from glass. Much of the glass remains thick, with a minimum thickness of 6mm, much of the glass used in these tables are both internationally made whilst also being manufacturer by traditional British glass companies, who have been supplying the glass for furniture pieces for generations. Moreover, many of the glass tables come is more unique, modernised designs, coming in a variety shapes such as opal, as well as many come available in step-up and U-shape designs.
Scale & Size, Firstly, the scale of the table is probably the most important factor, the table will anchor the room, and if its too big or too small, then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size, if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space, if there is a square space between a set of sofas such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge, then you could go for square, round or oversized rectangle. If you consider it should be just within reach of the main seats, it is likely to consume a decent amount of floorspace, a general rule is, it should be up to two thirds of the sofa in length, and sit at roughly the same height as the seats (with variations achieving different looks, i.e. very low will create a modern, minimalist feel).
Another convenient feature that some coffee tables offer is called a lift top. With this type of table, the entire top raises and pulls towards you so you can use it like you would a desk or dining table while youre seated on the sofa. This is a terrific place to play games, work on craft projects, use your laptop or enjoy a meal in front of the TV. You can say goodbye to those clumsy, unattractive TV trays and say hello to stylish functionality.
Since coffee tables are such a staple of the average home, an industry of sorts has risen around it: the coffee table book. The coffee table book is much larger in size than the average book, with covers that are almost works of art in themselves. You may have seen a coffee table book that you wanted just because the cover was so beautiful. These books are pictorial in nature and are meant to be visually enjoyed and quickly perused.
