Franchet Nathalyie. Coffee Table. December 03rd , 2017.
Coffee tables are also used as end tables in some homes. Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution, and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies, such as knitting, quilting, or needlepoint.
Another convenient feature that some coffee tables offer is called a lift top. With this type of table, the entire top raises and pulls towards you so you can use it like you would a desk or dining table while you‘re seated on the sofa. This is a terrific place to play games, work on craft projects, use your laptop or enjoy a meal in front of the TV. You can say goodbye to those clumsy, unattractive TV trays and say hello to stylish functionality.
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
No law says that the coffee table has to be in one piece! You can purchase a table that‘s actually a few small tables that fit into each other when not in use or are separate tables that can be placed around the living room; these types of tables are called a nest of tables and provide an alternative to having one big table in the middle of the room. The nest of tables is perfect for homes with a small living room.
