The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. They've got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
3. What size should my table be? The size of the table should be proportional to the size of the sofa you're partnering it with. A table that is longer than or shorter than a sofa's length will do you no good neither does a table that is taller or shorter than the sofa coffee table. 4. Can I afford it? There are many styles, designs, and material that are available in the market today and the price ranges from the very affordable to the very expensive. You should decide on a coffee table that fits your budget, in this economy, it's not practical to go broke just for a table. 5. What color? Tables can come in various hues and you should buy those with colors that go well with the theme of your living room. Colors too can complete the style you have in your place, for instance those who want to evoke a rustic style, go for wood furniture with lighter stains.
