Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours, they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes. Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. A sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables, for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round.
A room can look odd and unbalanced if the coffee table is disproportionately larger or smaller than your other furniture. Keeping this in mind you should determine what size coffee table will best fit your space. You dont want to purchase a coffee table only to realize when you get it home that you dont have space for it because its too big or that you have too much space because its too small.
It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks, glassware, china ornaments, nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface. Although all of these factors do require some time and consideration, the benefits of keeping your child safe far outweigh any time or financial costs involved. Remember: where children are concerned safety is always the number one priority.
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.
