Coffe Table. Sunday , December 03rd , 2017 - 21:36:31 PM
However, in recent years, interior design has moved towards creating a more modernised feel to homes and this has also affected the materials used to create Coffee Tables, for example, more tables are created using metal, glass and plastic than ever before. Whilst glass has often been included in traditional wooden tables, in recent years more and more items are being made prominently from glass. Much of the glass remains thick, with a minimum thickness of 6mm, much of the glass used in these tables are both internationally made whilst also being manufacturer by traditional British glass companies, who have been supplying the glass for furniture pieces for generations. Moreover, many of the glass tables come is more unique, modernised designs, coming in a variety shapes such as opal, as well as many come available in step-up and U-shape designs.
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.
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).
