The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it, possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee, choose a small, simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines, flower vase, bowl, etc., then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells, stones, photos, etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space, choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes, which usually is stored underneath one another, and occasionally, when the situation requires, all three tables can be used.
If the space is small or pint_sized, it will make economic sense to buy a large coffee table with adequate storage facilities and equipped with drawers and shelves which can be used for storing lot of items. This will eliminate the need for buying small furniture like magazine tables, end tables, dining table etc. which could clutter the room. If the accent is on durability and elegance, Oak Coffee tables are perfect. Apart from Oak, Pine, mahogany, teak wooden tables are also available with multiple size, shapes and patterns. Whatever espresso table you select, it should meet the overall purpose, function and objective of your plan without compromising on the style and decor of the room. Exercise due diligence and prudence in choosing!
