Wood remains the key material that many coffee tables are made from. Used in both traditional tables, as well as modern designed tables. Many of the high end wooden tables are made using traditional woods, such as oak, chosen for its unique and unrepeatable look, as well as its durability and strength. Other woods are often used including solid Asian hardwood, many of which come with a Maple Veneer. In addition, maple finished items, many manufacturer use Pine, Ash, Cedar, moreover, many of the woods often come with a range of finishes, for example a cherry finish. Because of the various types of wood, and the many available finishes that each type of wood can have, it still remains one of the most popular materials. Much of the wood used to create the wooden furniture come from specialised, renewable wood plantations, which specialise in creating more durable, stronger strength wood, with fewer natural problems, such as knots.
So, after youve dreamt about what you want, write down what it is you want your new piece of furniture to do for you. Do you want it to be simple, stylish and elegant and mainly to look good? Or do you want it to be functional and enable you to eat off it in the morning or even for dinner? its also really important not to get distracted by a round wood table that looks amazing but doesnt fulfill all your requirements. For example, many are quite low so great for putting magazines on or your feet up but not good for eating off of. The great thing about round wood coffee tables thought is that there are designs to fit all your needs.
And this is an important measure to consider because a round wood coffee table will often take on many different functions. So, really, if you want one that is great for the kids to draw on, eat dinner off but you still want it to look sleek, cool and minimal, then there will be a trade off. And if you dont consider all the aspects before you take a trip to the new designer furniture store, you may come back with a very desirable but basically impractical piece of furniture.
Furthermore, with the increase of home improvement in the UK, often resulting in extensions and conservatories being built, it has seen the rise in wicker and rattan, often used as part of conservatory furniture. Wicker and rattan coffee table feature, glass and metal and come in a wide range of designs. Wicker and Rattan is available in both natural and synthetic material, Wicker is created using hard woven fibers, made from materials of plant origin but plastic fibers are also used.
Style & Colour, There are many styles available from very modern, to traditional styles, look for something that complements the room and other furnishings, and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material, timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms, it helps to tie the room together. If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly "matchy-matchy" easily if you select a matching coffee table, break it up with glass with timber legs, or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table. The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug, flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that wont compete, if you are not so confident with creating bold displays, select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point, a bolder design will ensure your guests dont think youre boring!
