Khatja Himmel. Coffee Table. November 07th , 2017.
Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables, for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion, or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?
Naturally, the first criteria for choosing coffee tables should be the overall decor of the room. Decors can be broadly classified as Classical, Chic, Retro, Modern etc. A classic decor will probably be Victorian era heavy and ornate furniture, lots of wood and lots of pink cloth. An ornate, curved leg dark wood coffee table will be perfect in that setting. Totally opposite to classic, we have modern, which is lighter furniture, white wood or steel and glass pieces.
The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it, possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee, choose a small, simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines, flower vase, bowl, etc., then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells, stones, photos, etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space, choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes, which usually is stored underneath one another, and occasionally, when the situation requires, all three tables can be used.
The actual function of the coffee table has not really changed all that much since its creation. Coffee tables were actually imported by the West and first used as garden tables for drinking tea or coffee outdoors. Then, the coffee table moved indoors began to serve as a rather low piece of furniture could be used to entertain guests or simply read the newspaper in front of with a nice cup of coffee resting comfortably on a coaster.
