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.
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.
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.
Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. Fresh Flowers- a sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round. What to Look For. If perhaps your coffee table is letting you down or you are simply in the market for a new one what are some of the key factors you should be looking for?
