The purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward, at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee, magazines, and remotes, it may also moonlight as a dining table, a desk, a children everything table and a footrest, or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you.
The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. They got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate. Many small children have a particular fascination for coffee tables, spending hours investigating the treasures that they can hold. It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks, glassware, china ornaments, nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface. Although all of these factors do require some time and consideration, the benefits of keeping your child safe far outweigh any time or financial costs involved. Remember: where children are concerned safety is always the number one priority.
Coffee tables are available in an endless array of sizes, materials and colors. Some popular table choices are metal, glass and wood. The size of the coffee table should be in proportion to the size of the room. Larger tables seem most at home in larger rooms. The top of the table can be made of a different material than the legs. Glass-topped tables frequently feature metal frames. Some tables made out of wood have metal accents such as trim and other hardware. Mixing materials can make a more visually interesting table. Another function of the small coffee table can be added storage. Some tables have a drawer or two, which can hold games, magazines or remote controls. Other tables have a shelf at the bottom between the legs, which can hold books. The top of a small coffee table can be the perfect place to display special family pieces such as clocks and photographs. In addition to being functional, small coffee tables can help make a room feel more polished.
