Naturally, the first criteria for choosing coffee tables should be the overall décor of the room. Décors can be broadly classified as Classical, Chic, Retro, Modern etc. A classic décor will probably be Victorian era heavy and ornate furniture, lots of wood and lots of pink cloth. An ornate, curved leg dark wood coffee table will be perfect in that setting. Totally opposite to classic, we have modern, which is lighter furniture, white wood or steel and glass pieces.
If you're looking for the perfect table that is visually appealing and gives the eye the illusion of space but that you have reservations with a glass table, then Lucite ends your search. You can now show off that beautiful Persian rug with a coffee table made from Lucite a material which is also known as acrylic that is stronger and clearer than glass.
Considering the romantic crowd that throngs the cafes, coffee table romance has become a phrase today. There are so many romantic stories where the young lovers meet over a cup of coffee and the relationship blooms. So what makes coffee table so romantic apart from the coffee? Some say it must be the size. Smaller than usual dinner table, it is easier to lean across a tiny little table and get lost into each other's eyes.
Moving along, there are even more intricate choices in tables if you have a modern feel to your home. Nowadays, you can find many cubes made of leather, wood, Plexiglas, or even metal. They are often decorated with ceramic or stone to add a special touch to your living area. When you are choosing a table, make sure that it is the right size for your living space, leaving a little over a foot between the sofa and the table itself. As a rule of thumb, it's always a better idea to have a larger table than a table that is too small to use.
If your décor is more particular like Retro, the 80s disco style, or chic to suit your upwardly mobile guests and lifestyle, your pick of coffee tables may become slimmer and more expensive. However, while décor can be your style guide, you need to measure the area you intent to place the coffee table in before starting any shopping.
