Modern Coffee Tables - A lot of artistic touch has been given to this one. They have a very creative and wealthy background and therefore are labeled as modern tables. These tables are not those prominent ones. Take enough time in assessing the need of a modern table for your décor. They are great piece of furniture and serve both in function and looks.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television, and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine, its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room, and it becomes the most important focal point. So, are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high, or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak, with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is, or who you want to project, spending some time considering the "presentation" of your coffee table, just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room. If you want to create a coffee table display, select pieces with a similar theme and group them together, then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers, or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear, look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement, to add interest to the centre of the room, if you have a minimalist theme, create depth by contrasting shapes, a simple round vase on a square table for example.
Square coffee tables - a square table gives diversity to the theme. It is a traditional style of tables and is in existence since the beginning of the furniture era. A square table is easy to fit in the environment. However, make sure the size is suitable to your sitting room. Square tables are available in a multitude of designs and textures. Therefore, choose a table that matches with the rest of your décor. Usually, a square coffee table is made up of wood and so the rest of the furniture should also be wooden in order to adjust the square table to the environment completely.
