Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you're going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you're making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you're just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
Height is a very important consideration when buying coffee tables. You should decide how tall you want your table based on the height of your sofa or chairs. Most standard coffee tables are about sixteen inches tall, but there are also coffee tables available in heights as low as eleven inches. Shorter coffee tables are made specifically for contemporary sofa chairs that are designed to sit lower.
Storage and portability is also another issue you might like to keep in mind while selecting coffee tables. Most couples and professional today live in compact apartments and relocate when necessary. Tables that can be taken apart are great to pack away. However, if you do not fancy DIY, you can go for a folding or partially detachable table. This way you can store or move the coffee table without taking it apart.
