Bisaillon Coffee Table September 23rd, 2017 - 14:12:56
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).
A glass coffee table can be an excellent choice for small rooms as they helping to make the room feel more spacious and airy. They can also lend a very modern feel to a room that might otherwise look dated. Caution should be used where small children might be likely to use the room however. Although glass tables will be made of toughened glass it is not impossible to break one. Safety should always come first.
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.
Coffee tables are frequently the central focus of a living area and therefore have a tremendous impact on a rooms decor and ambiance. A wise choice can create a feeling of style and harmony whilst a poor choice can make a room look disordered and can overwhelm the other furniture, making the room look smaller and feel less unified.
