Ormazd Coffee Table September 27th, 2017 - 14:57:44
This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you? The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television, and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine, its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room, and it becomes the most important focal point.
Some people also suggest that your coffee table should be no larger than sixty percent of your sofas length. The height that you choose very much depends on what you intend to use it for. Modern coffee tables are often very low; however this may make using it for eating difficult. It is often a good idea to place an item of a similar size and shape to any table that you intend to buy in the room. This will give you a feel for how it will work with the space that you have.
If perhaps your coffee table is letting you down, or you are simply in the market for a new one, what are some of the key factors you should be looking for? 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.
So, are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high, or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak, with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is, or who you want to project, spending some time considering the presentation of your coffee table, just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room.
