Franchet Nathalyie. Coffee Table. November 09th , 2017.
Some people prefer to take a snap of the room where the coffee table is to be placed, to compare with the selected items in the shop. With mobile cameras in abandon these days, it is quite an easy thing to do. Moreover, it happens often that you feel you just have to have this coffee table but not sure if it is the right shade of the color to match your sofa etc. Beats rushing home with a picture of the table instead.
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.
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.
Today, as has always been the case with this very traditional and ubiquitous piece of furniture, the classic but modern coffee table is a place where friends and family gather. However, modern coffee tables are still necessary but just not in the morning as was traditionally the case in generations past. Mornings are typically reserved for either catching up on much-needed sleep or simply getting ready to start the day. There is precious little need for the formality of sitting down in front of the sofa and drinking coffee when there is barely time to make a cup to go.
