If you are looking for coffee tables that are not only beautiful but incredibly functional, then you are definitely looking for functional coffee tables. Functional coffee tables are manufactured to have additional uses other than regular coffee tables. These specific types of coffee tables are often built more sturdy than your average coffee table to they are ideal for people who prefer to pay a little more for a table that will last a lot longer (and have additional functions). Lift Top Coffee Tables _ Of all the different types of functional tables the lift top is one of the best. A majority of these tables are extraordinarily gorgeous. The finishes are stunning and the styles are always cool.
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.
