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.
Don't rely on your eyes to measure tables. Being low, they often look smaller then they are, especially glass topped coffee tables look smaller due to their see-through tops. You can't haul home a piece of furniture to find it's just a bit too high or wide to fit your living space.
Your coffee table should blend seamlessly with your other home furnishings, as a general rule. So if your home is modern, look for ultra-chic coffee tables made of glass and iron. Such contemporary pieces are sharp and defined, and they make a limited space seem bigger (a big reason that they are often used in apartments). If your home is more traditional, then choose a table that is made of rich wood treated with either a light or deep stain, depending on the color of your existing pieces. Classic wooden coffee tables never go out of style.
