Wooden Coffee Tables _ Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase. Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed.
So, after you've dreamt about what you want, write down what it is you want your new piece of furniture to do for you. Do you want it to be simple, stylish and elegant and mainly to look good? Or do you want it to be functional and enable you to eat off it in the morning or even for dinner? it's also really important not to get distracted by a round wood table that looks amazing but doesn't fulfill all your requirements. For example, many are quite low so great for putting magazines on or your feet up but not good for eating off of. The great thing about round wood coffee tables thought is that there are designs to fit all your needs.
