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.
Don't forget to measure how high your coffee tables should be as well. Generally, the height should be same or a little bit higher than the sofa seats it will complement. Seat down on your sofa and measure the height from the floor to the top of your bended knee. These tables should be either that high or an inch more or less, if you can't manage that. Too high and it will become an eye sore, too low and your guests will tumble out of the seat to use it.
These tables are perfect to hide away newspapers, extra blankets or pillows, coloring books, magazines or anything else you don't have room for anywhere else. They come in every style from contemporary to traditional so no matter what your personal preference, you'll be able to find one of these fantastic functional coffee tables that perfectly fit your living spaces.
Some people prefer to take a snap of the room where the coffee table is to be placed, to compare with the selected items in the shop. With mobile cameras in abandon these days, it is quite an easy thing to do. Moreover, it happens often that you feel you just have to have this coffee table but not sure if it is the right shade of the color to match your sofa etc. Beats rushing home with a picture of the table instead.
Coffee table sets are available in many designs, shapes, sizes and brand names. Homeowners are spoiled with choices of rectangular, round and oval shapes. Coffee tables are made of various different materials such as wrought iron, stainless steel, marble, and glass. Some are made of high-quality wood like teak and oak. Some coffee tables are added with glass tops. Depending on the theme of the living room, homeowners can choose antique wrought iron coffee tables for the classic Victorian look. Otherwise, those who like simple, modern look can opt for teak or oak coffee tables in rich burgundy or dark brown. Some coffee tables are made of rare materials such as rattan. These give the overall Asian or Tiki look for the living room, especially for beach houses or homes in a tropical country.
