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.
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.
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?
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.
