Types _ So what types of adjustable cocktail tables exist? There are several types of these types of tables that you can go for. Round and rectangular_shaped tables are a common type among these convertible coffee tables. If you're interested in getting a cocktail table that is resembles a regular dining table as much as possible, purchasing a round table would be your best bet. But if you prefer one that is relatively discreet and un_obvious, then a rectangular_shaped coffee table will likely be your preference. Other features you'll come across are several with glass tops and X_shaped bases. Some offer a hydraulic lift along with ottoman_styled seating. You'll also find one or two wooden veneered versions, but the majority will be contemporary, modern_styled tables with simple lines and a clean look and feel.
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. _ 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.
