Style & Colour. There are many styles available from very modern to traditional styles look for something that complements the room and other furnishings and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms it helps to tie the room together. If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly 'matchy-matchy' easily if you select a matching coffee table break it up with glass with timber legs or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table.
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 purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee magazines and remotes it may also moonlight as a dining table a desk a children's everything table and a footrest or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character or at least the objects on it do so what does your coffee table say about you?
The size color and material of your small coffee table can be almost anything you desire. It can be made from wood glass or metal and in any size. A large round coffee table would be best suited to a large room. Whether made of steel plastic or wood a round coffee table or a small coffee table may also be fitted with a drawer or shelf underneath it to hold magazines or childrens' games such as cards tiddlywinks and dominos. These tables can also be used to display a clock or an ornament the list is endless.
