Khatja Himmel. Coffee Table. November 12th , 2017.
Customers who prefer old fashioned wood, whether it is oak, walnut, teak or pine have a nearly endless variety to choose from. For example they can purchase a table made of lightly varnished wood, like maple or pine, with a beautiful grain and functioning drawers for storage. Large coffee tables can be simple, sturdy with a lower shelf and a polished/stained finish. There are many combinations that can create a table to suit your home.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
There are few things to think of before you get this project under way however. One is that you are going to be putting coffee on this table. Coffee is hot. That means you need to make sure that what ever you‘re doing can stand up to the impact of a hot cup of coffee or that you take some sort of steps to protect the table surface. This could be as simple as making sure there are saucers or coasters to put a hot cup on. Another thing to think of is whether or not your artwork can be damaged. The best way to deal with this is to make sure the artwork is on the underside of the glass. That way, people pushing things around on the surface, like coffee cups, won‘t hurt your art in any way.
Besides the fireplace, the focal point of a living room is the coffee table. This type of living room tables descended from the European tea table, they usually sit before a sofa and are used to hold knick knacks and magazines as well as coffee cups, and can be made of elaborately carved wood, Plexiglas, glass and chrome, or wicker and bamboo.
