You probably know that home-accessories are one of the most important elements in any interior, especially when it comes to our living room decoration – as this is the place where we spend most of our free time.
Coffee tables can be versatile and can be made from virtually any material. Natural materials such as rock, wood, cork and other organic materials make perfect finishes for coffee tables. When choosing the right finish for your home, consider the wear and tear from your family and children. Hardwoods perform well with little maintenance, but softer wood coffee tables can show scratches and also indentations from pens and other hard objects. Keep this in mind before choosing a coffee table.
Speaking of materials, coffee tables can come in a wide variety too. There are industrial ones in metal. Materials such as glass combined with either brass or steel offer a more sophisticated look. Whether it is oak, maple, cherry or walnut, wood has its own feel to it. Oak and maple are on the more casual side with walnut and cherry having a more formal look.
Reclaimed wood coffee tables are always interesting. They hold a lot of history and they breath new life into pieces of wood that have already lived their life once and are now given a second chance.
A rustic wood coffee table can also look something like this. The geometric top is a little bit traditional with a modern twist while the base is sculptural and unique, characteristics that could describe a lot of styles. But as a whole, this table definitely has a lot of rustic character.
The coffee table in the living room is the anchor of your living room, making a design statement and functioning as a visual focal point. This is also one of the messiest surfaces in your home.
Why is the statement coffee table an excellent choice? Because compared to larger ticket living room items such as a sofa or media console, it can more easily be switched out as trends come and go.
