Choosing coffee tables and end tables is not a priority with most people when they begin to furnish their homes, and even more mature homeowners often look upon these as extras requiring little thought. Whether you are furnishing your first home or are considering renewing the aged and wilting furniture you have been using for more years than you can bear to consider, here are some suggestions that might help you. First, why do you need coffee tables and end tables _ or either one of these? Many use them simply for show, and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use. In some cases, you can purchase such tables to match your existing furniture, or if completely renewing your living room furniture they can be included in a collection. In the latter case your choice is simple, but what if not? What if you are looking for a coffee table or end table that is not part of a set, but you feel you need one or both to make your living room look complete? Here are some tips.
If your look is formal with large furniture in a large room, you can get away with a large coffee table made from bold, chunky, dark hardwoods. However if you live in a studio flat, a smaller, lower, lighter coffee table with a glass top could work better. 4) Think about how you will accessorize your round wood table. You may like everything neat and tidy and just add a bunch of flowers and a couple of magazines to elevate the design, or you may like lots of comfort around you and even throw on some cushions and place some ornaments on it. When selecting yours, make sure it will work with the objects that will call it home.
