It may seem like no small task to find the perfect coffee table to complement your home decor, especially since it will serve as a focal centerpiece - but a coffee table for your living area can be so much more! Normally, a coffee table is a small table that is low to the ground, which sits in the center of a living room. It is often used to hold coffee, books, magazines, or other items of decoration. Coffee tables became popular in the 1920s, but they actually have a much longer history. Coffee tables were actually found within the Ottoman Empire, and they were normally placed within tea gardens.
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.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
