Evenings however are another story and that is when the modern coffee table may be better known as a cocktail table. Precisely like any traditional coffee table a cocktail table is set low to the ground and generally placed in front of a sofa or seating area. However there are some cocktail tables that feature removable benches and other features compatible with game tables. The difference is subtle but a cocktail table is not designed specifically for gaming of any kind and tends to be a little more formal. Game tables often have features like built-in boards or places specifically designed to hold chess pieces and similar objects.
Once you have sorted out size function and some of the other details of what you need in coffee table(s) for your home the path to finding one should be much easier. Keep your needs on hand and immediately rule out any tables that don't fit. Measure those that are left against one another until you find the perfect fit.
Scale & Size. Firstly the scale of the table is probably the most important factor the table will anchor the room and if it's too big or too small then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space if there is a square space between a set of sofa's such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge then you could go for square round or oversized rectangle.
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.
