More than Just a table for Coffee. 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.
How are you going to use them? This may seem like a common sense question but it really deserves a little thought. While it is caused a coffee table many people will never put a cup of coffee on these tables yet plenty of other things will take place here. Some people will choose to sit on the floor and eat their meals or snacks off the coffee table while they watch their favorite TV show or a movie. If you are one of those people you need to make sure your coffee table doesn't have a solid base or there will be nowhere to put your legs and you will be very uncomfortable.
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 you're 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.
Scale & Size. Firstly the scale of the table is probably the most important factor the table will anchor the room and if it's 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 sofa's such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge then you could go for square round or oversized rectangle.
