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.
