The actual function of the coffee table has not really changed all that much since its creation. Coffee tables were actually imported by the West and first used as garden tables for drinking tea or coffee outdoors. Then the coffee table moved indoors began to serve as a rather low piece of furniture could be used to entertain guests or simply read the newspaper in front of with a nice cup of coffee resting comfortably on a coaster.
Each person will vary in what they need out of their coffee tables and those needs will likely dictate some of the traits the table needs to have. Take a note of your needs so you can start to narrow down the tables that will fit those needs. How much space do you have to fill?
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.
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.
