More than Just a table for Coffee _ The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television, and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine, its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room, and it becomes the most important focal point. So, are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high, or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak, with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is, or who you want to project, spending some time considering the 'presentation' of your coffee table, just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room. If you want to create a coffee table display, select pieces with a similar theme and group them together, then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers, or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear, look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement, to add interest to the centre of the room, if you have a minimalist theme, create depth by contrasting shapes, a simple round vase on a square table for example.
• Always make sure that your house decor goes well with the choice of you furnishings. If you are more traditional style, you should get a coffee table that is antique and heavy too. The style will be from the Victorian Age, the legs stumpy and decorated. The coffee table furniture in this case should be made of hard wood, be it mahogany or rosewood. They will probably be expensive as well, but it all depends on your choice. _ • If you have your pad set up in the high_chic, high_tech and ultra_modern outlook, it is better to get a table that is made of metal or steel with glass top. This will be more effective in pairing up with the rest of the furniture in your room too. _ • Of course, this does not mean that you must always play by the rules as a boring nerd. Try to be funky too. Nothing makes s a mug of coffee more appealing than bright shades of pink or better_ red. If your sofas are made of black leather, pair them with red coffee table furniture and see your room transform!
