Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
While you can always look through catalogues and branded furniture shops, it is definitely much more interesting to keep your options open and hunt in other places as well. For instance, auctions, antique shops and sales, yard sales etc can come up with unique items with character and history to add to your décor. They might even be within your budget.
