Function. The way you use your coffee table is a key factor if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling or climbing on furniture you may like to consider something with round edges which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
Today as has always been the case with this very traditional and ubiquitous piece of furniture the classic but modern coffee table is a place where friends and family gather. However modern coffee tables are still necessary but just not in the morning as was traditionally the case in generations past. Mornings are typically reserved for either catching up on much-needed sleep or simply getting ready to start the day. There is precious little need for the formality of sitting down in front of the sofa and drinking coffee when there is barely time to make a cup to go.
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.
If your look is formal with large furniture in a large room you can get away with a large coffee table made from bold chunky dark hardwoods. However if you live in a studio flat a smaller lower lighter coffee table with a glass top could work better. Think about how you will accessorize your round wood table. You may like everything neat and tidy and just add a bunch of flowers and a couple of magazines to elevate the design or you may like lots of comfort around you and even throw on some cushions and place some ornaments on it. When selecting yours make sure it will work with the objects that will call it home.
