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.
If you have pets, don’t use softwood because stains, scratches, and dents show more easily. You are better off with hardwood because they are naturally resistant to stains and dents and this ability is even strengthened with the proper application of chemicals that protect wood finish. Think of the type of finish you would like your coffee table to have once it is completed. Would you like to have it painted or stained? You can also decoupage your table after either staining or painting to create truly unique furniture. Different types of wood will look differently depending on the type of finish you are aiming for.
Modern coffee tables vary greatly. There was once was a time when coffee tables were simply practical platforms upon which you would place coffee and snacks or even books. Of course, now people do not simply entertain guests for tea, but for a variety of other reasons, and as such, they do not simply use their living room furniture for casual engagements. Indeed, people may also dine in the living rooms or use the space for more full-bodied physical activities than simply sitting and chatting the night away.
