The first area of a home that guests will see is the living room. Therefore, it is important that the living room be decorated in a theme that portrays the host`s personality. No other furniture describes a homeowner`s individuality better than his or her choice of coffee tables. With manufacturers designing and making more coffee table sets every year, homeowners will never be out of designs to choose.
Rustic coffee tables are available in various shapes but the most commonly seen shapes are round, oval, square and rectangular. Generally round and oval have similar features, the only difference is that an oval table is able to cater more people than a round table otherwise both the shapes have smooth edges to it which reduces that chances of you and your family from hurting themselves with the corners of the table. Whereas, rectangular and square tables are generally bought by those who have a bigger room as these shapes in table cater more people than a round or oval table can. these tables have rough edges therefore you have to be careful while you walk around it in order to avoid yourself from getting hurt.
Having a coffee table allows you to enjoy snacks and a cup of coffee with your loves ones therefore it is recommended in every home. But you should make sure that you purchase the one that is not only of your choice but also matches the theme of your room. In case you have a contemporary theme you must choose a table that look stylish and highly fashionable but in case you have a rustic setting in your room then a contemporary coffee table will not fit in therefore for a rustic art theme you must select rustic.
Contemporary and modern coffee tables are hardly recognizable as coffee tables in the traditional sense of the word, as they are usually rectangular and quite plain. The new designs however, are nothing but, and can even create a show-stopping conversational piece that is wonderful for the living room. Usually they are associated as a simple place to rest coffee next to a sofa or couch. More contemporary designs however are interesting enough to stand on their own, and can even be the centerpiece of the room.
Lastly, a coffee table regardless of any material or color does come in many shapes. The most popular shapes are rectangular and round. Choosing a table`s shape should depend on the amount of space in the room, suitability of the shape to the other furniture, and/or whether or not you have young kids at home who might accidentally bump onto rectangular table edges.
Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
