Style & Colour _ There are many styles available from very modern, to traditional styles, look for something that complements the room and other furnishings, and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material, timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms, it helps to tie the room together. If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly 'matchy_matchy' easily if you select a matching coffee table, break it up with glass with timber legs, or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table. The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug, flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that won't compete, if you are not so confident with creating bold displays, select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point, a bolder design will ensure your guests don't think you're boring! A coffee table, also called as cocktail table, is a long low table which is usually found in the sitting room. If you are a person who loves to entertain guests at your house, you would specifically desire for your sitting room to look great. A sitting room should have all the facilities that give comfort to the people there. This is the reason why many people emphasize on having a table that goes along with the ambiance of your sitting room.
Being able to answer such questions will lead you to the best coffee table you're living room could ever have. 1. What style should I buy? There are many styles of coffee tables out there. Some have simple minimalist designs, some are modest, futuristic, some are ornate, some have intricate designs, and some tables are incorporated with as much detail, and some are designed to give the illusion of space. Don't buy a coffee table just because you like it or you think it will fit that extra living room space. Look at your living room theme first and choose something that does not clash with the present style or theme of the living room. 2. How big is the available space I can spare? Yes you might have an extra space that could use a table to fill up that boring void. But first carefully measure that space or you'd end up with a table bigger than the space you have which you may not be able to use at all or you'd end up with a table that falls short of your expectations.
