The purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward, at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee, magazines, and remotes, it may also moonlight as a dining table, a desk, a children's everything table and a footrest, or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you?
As a general guideline it is preferable to have a minimum of two feet around each side of the coffee table and it should be reachable, without standing, from each of the seating areas. Some people also suggest that your coffee table should be no larger than sixty percent of your sofas length. The height that you choose very much depends on what you intend to use it for. Modern coffee tables are often very low; however this may make using it for eating difficult.
Glass Coffee Tables. You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
Stone Coffee Tables. Different kinds of stones can be used in constructing a stone table: marble, granite, and slate. The most popular is the marble. If you want a Victorian style theme, this furniture will be the best table to put in front of the sofa.
