The way to really get the most out of your new round wood coffee table is to simply dream. Dream about what you want the room to look like and imagine yourself in all the different scenarios where you will be using your new table. You may imagine yourself entertaining at your party, perhaps chilling out watching TV, playing with the kids or maybe even a romantic night in.
Square coffee tables - a square table gives diversity to the theme. It is a traditional style of tables and is in existence since the beginning of the furniture era. A square table is easy to fit in the environment. However, make sure the size is suitable to your sitting room. Square tables are available in a multitude of designs and textures. Therefore, choose a table that matches with the rest of your décor. Usually, a square coffee table is made up of wood and so the rest of the furniture should also be wooden in order to adjust the square table to the environment completely.
As with glass, much of the modern styled furniture uses a great deal of metal, with many of the glass tables having metal features, as opposite to wooden characteristics. Many of the metals used include steel and chrome, both of which come brushed and polished. Moreover, many of metal aspects of coffee tables are often available with different pigmentations, such as black or red. Much of the metals are sourced from both the UK and abroad.
However, in recent years, interior design has moved towards creating a more modernised feel to homes and this has also affected the materials used to create Coffee Tables, for example, more tables are created using metal, glass and plastic than ever before. Whilst glass has often been included in traditional wooden tables, in recent years more and more items are being made prominently from glass. Much of the glass remains thick, with a minimum thickness of 6mm, much of the glass used in these tables are both internationally made whilst also being manufacturer by traditional British glass companies, who have been supplying the glass for furniture pieces for generations. Moreover, many of the glass tables come is more unique, modernised designs, coming in a variety shapes such as opal, as well as many come available in step-up and U-shape designs.
Scale & Size, Firstly, the scale of the table is probably the most important factor, the table will anchor the room, and if its too big or too small, then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size, if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space, if there is a square space between a set of sofas such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge, then you could go for square, round or oversized rectangle. If you consider it should be just within reach of the main seats, it is likely to consume a decent amount of floorspace, a general rule is, it should be up to two thirds of the sofa in length, and sit at roughly the same height as the seats (with variations achieving different looks, i.e. very low will create a modern, minimalist feel).
