Your coffee table is an opportunity to do something special to add flair to your room. Designers often group accent tables in place of a single large table, especially if they are made of interesting materials such as metal, stone or combination. Accent coffee tables are a conceptual way to mimic the style you already have in place in your home whether it is art deco, modern, traditional, contemporary or even ultra post modern as they are a great way to add a contrast with a slight touch of mystery to the design. They do not look disconnected in the least but add a deeper sense of connection and intimacy to the space. Not only does it up the ante for decorating but is valuable for entertaining and should you ever place your home on the market it adds flair which strikes a chord in potential buyers.
A coffee table has many more uses than the functional and practical ones we all take for granted. As well as being the place to put your snacks, drinks and reading material, and apart from being the world’s best foot-rest for that relaxing TV time, it is also one of the main focal points of any living area. It helps to provide a link between the rest of the furniture in the living room and has the ability to make a room look a lot better with it than without. One of the main designs of table that is regularly overlooked appears to be the white coffee table.
To help you decide, you must first consider the existing furniture and the general theme of your house. Your table shouldn’t clash with the existing otherwise you end up making something you’re not going to use. When thought out carefully, this type of table becomes the focal point of your living room especially if the table is made of the right materials. Therefore the next thing to consider is whether you’re going to use hardwood or softwood. The general rule is if the table will be used quite a lot such as when you entertain guests constantly, you live with kids, or you plan a wood base under a stone table top, you have pets, or plan to pass the table to future generations; you must avail of hardwood such as oak, maple and cherry. But if the table will be used as accent or decorative pieces then softwood such as pine will do.
