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.
As a rule of thumb a coffee table should be about 18 inches from the people sitting beside it. This will give you an idea of what shape will work best for your living room space. If you have a long sofa you are going to need a longer table or a pair of coffee tables that will bridge the whole space. If you have a smaller sitting area you can choose a smaller table. The ultimate goal is that everyone who is sitting around the table can reach it without having to do any uncomfortable stretching.
The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that won't compete if you are not so confident with creating bold displays select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point a bolder design will ensure your guests don't think you're boring!
Quick Styling Tips: Books are key items a couple of stacks of coffee table books you love arranged at one end or opposite sides. Trays are key to creating a style when there isn't much happening either contrast the shape of the table (i.e. round on square or square on round) or go for the same shape positioned perpendicular or off centre place a vase with fresh flowers or a candle holder and throw your remotes in. Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes.
