Kappel Kerstien. Coffee Table. December 08th , 2017.
If your decor is more particular like Retro, the 80s disco style, or chic to suit your upwardly mobile guests and lifestyle, your pick of coffee tables may become slimmer and more expensive. However, while decor can be your style guide, you need to measure the area you intent to place the coffee table in before starting any shopping. Don‘t rely on your eyes to measure tables. Being low, they often look smaller then they are, especially glass topped coffee tables look smaller due to their see-through tops. You can‘t haul home a piece of furniture to find it‘s just a bit too high or wide to fit your living space.
Coffee tables add pizazz to your decor by making a room feel complete. When you add these tables to your living room or family room, you can create a distinct coziness to your seating areas. Some living or family rooms can be overwhelming in size. By adding a couple coffee tables near a sofa or a chair combination, they create mini seating areas which, in turn, foster a more comfortable and cozy atmosphere. Coffee tables are also known as accent tables because they can accentuate a room‘s decor. If the living room‘s theme is, for example, wild flowers, accent tables can hold some well placed vases full of fresh cut or dried wild flowers. They can also display home decor and art pieces that are part of the wild flower theme. In this way, these accent tables pull a room together - decor-wise.
Evenings, however, are another story and that is when the modern coffee table may be better known as a cocktail table. Precisely like any traditional coffee table, a cocktail table is set low to the ground and generally placed in front of a sofa or seating area. However, there are some cocktail tables that feature removable benches and other features compatible with game tables.
Within our homes we have pieces of furniture which are purely functional and do not serve any real aesthetic purpose, they are just in our homes to serve a purpose. We don‘t really think too much about these pieces of furniture and neither do our guests. Sometimes these items of furniture can be quite nice pieces but they might just lack something to set them off, and this thing to set them off doesn‘t have to be anything too spectacular. Maybe an ornament would do the trick, but cheap ornaments look exactly that, cheap. A bowl of fruit or a water feature is a possibility but they are a bit old hat now.
