1. Wood Coffee Tables _ Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you're going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you're making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you're just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
An adjustable height coffee table is a coffee table and dining table combo. Who would want an adjustable table? Small home goers, of course. They're the perfect solution for anyone who lives in a small place that can't afford the room for both a cocktail table and dining table but does have enough space for one or the other. They serve your temporary need for dining and entertaining. The table can be converted from a coffee to dining table during meal times and back to a cocktail table during other times throughout the day. You'll find that only a few of these tables are accompanied with chairs, so it's often a requirement that you buy your own set of chairs separately. A good idea is to purchase folding chairs. That way they can be stowed away when they're not in use and pulled back out when you need them again.
