HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT COFFEE TABLE
Expertly crafted to complement your lifestyle in terms of comfort, character and style, our wide range of coffee tables are available in a selection of styles, shapes, sizes and designs.
Coffee tables serve several purposes; from completing a look, to storage and display purposes – they are much needed in any space. The question is, which style will work for your room. Should you go with a wooden coffee table with chunky legs, a metallic coffee table with a glass top; should your coffee table be round, square or rectangular? The options are endless, and at times can be overwhelming. We have put together a buyer’s guild on how to select the perfect coffee table for your lounge.
Shape and size
The height of your coffee table depends on the height of the sofa or occasional chairs it is intended to be paired with. The same thing goes for the length of your coffee table, a low table should be one half or one-third of the length of your couch. As for the shape, a rectangular coffee table usually adapts to any type of room, a square low coffee table requires a wider space while a round coffee table gives a sense of flow and openness.
A coffee table can be crafted from a wide range of materials, such as wood, metal, glass and marble. A glass coffee table appears lighter and provides a sense of simplicity and elegance. Metal coffee tables are often characterised by strength and durability, while wooden coffee tables are more traditional with the endless possibilities of woods and finishes. Lastly, marble coffee tables are more suitable for classic and refined environments and add a touch of luxury to space.
Another important factor to consider is, what the primary use of the coffee table will be. Will your coffee table be more decorative, or used to provide storage? How much storage will be enough? Coffee tables are available with shelves, or drawers and can hold everything from kids’ toys to that stash of magazines you will someday read.
Regardless if storage is needed, there is still a good chance you will want to be able to place a drink or a plate down without the risk of it tipping over. Consider what you will mainly use your coffee table for and make sure that it will be able to serve all your needs.
