Romaine Leroux. Coffe Table. December 04th, 2017.
Scale & Size, Firstly, the scale of the table is probably the most important factor, the table will anchor the room, and if its too big or too small, then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size, if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space, if there is a square space between a set of sofas such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge, then you could go for square, round or oversized rectangle. If you consider it should be just within reach of the main seats, it is likely to consume a decent amount of floorspace, a general rule is, it should be up to two thirds of the sofa in length, and sit at roughly the same height as the seats (with variations achieving different looks, i.e. very low will create a modern, minimalist feel).
However, you can also go vice versa, especially if you have already arranged a room. Changing an old coffee table, can give your room a whole new lease of life. Add a splash of colour, an ingenious modern table and you get a whole new look. You have a marine or Hawaiian-style room, dominated by blue and green water? There are even tables in the form of fish aquariums so you can make it even more real.
Coffee table sets do all the matching work for you since they come with coffee tables and end tables that all have the same style. So, then you do not have to worry about whether this goes with that and so on. There are actually a slew of stylish choices to pick from, which is nice for you since it allows you to easily find exactly what you are looking for. One of the style options that are available are those that have a modern design with clean lines and a very symmetrical appearance. Or, if you like things that are more on the extravagant side, then you can go with something that is more of an antique appearance with delicate scrolls and accents. The style choices do not end there either as there are many more to pick from as well including those that have a traditional appearance, others that are more cottage like, some that are very artsy, and there are even transitional options that combined two, even three different style elements. These transitional ones are very nice if you have a space that does not have one clear cut style to it.
Function, The way you use your coffee table is a key factor, if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children, look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly, if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling, or climbing on furniture, you may like to consider something with round edges, which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
