Some people consider the look of a coffee table their number one priority and may prefer a very large coffee table for maximum visual impact. Others prefer to maximize the amount of floor space available for other uses.
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, then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells, stones, photos) 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.
The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofas 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.
The style, shape and size of the table should take into account how the room is decorated (or how you intend to decorate it). Some specialists recommend choosing the table first, searching for the one that we love and the one that best stimulates our imagination, then, depending on it to choose the rest of the furniture. When youre undecided and dont know what style or what colour you should choose for your living room, go to the section with round coffee tables, choose one that you like the best, this may then give you inspiration for the design of the rest of the room. Got your eye on a low and white table? You are likely to have a contemporary minimalist style. You like a massive carved, black wood table? Think of classic styling, which may be more to your taste. And examples could continue. The fact is that you can choose the table first, then build around it.
