Features _ It's true that many of these tables can adjust to various heights. However some do come with pre_defined height limitations, which mean that you may only be able to adjust them to 3 heights. The ones without such limitations will allow you more height adjustable options. So it's important to pay close attention to the heights allowed for each table since this will be significant to you. Aside from that many of these tables not only adjust in height, but they also extend. So if you want to serve a relatively large party in your small home, a good idea is to look for an adjustable height coffee table that also has an extendable table top.
For rooms with an "L" shaped sofa, a coffee table in the middle can offer a convenient spot for large art books, pottery and the like. This furniture arrangement can offer a great opportunity to purchase a table that is unique like a tree trunk table. Tree trunk coffee tables are works of art themselves and offer a great conversation piece in any room. This look is especially fitting in rooms with a rustic feel. Tile mosaic tables are another choice and can even be commissioned by local artists to use colors already found in the room. Other Reasons to Consider a Coffee Table _ Having a handy spot for food and drink is not the only reason for a coffee table. Lamps can be placed on coffee or cocktail tables. Coffee or cocktail tables can provide the perfect place to play a rousing game of cards or a favorite board game. For families with small children, coffee tables are the perfect height for meals and playtime. Sharp corners might not be the best choice for children's use, however.
