Coffee tables come in different types, shapes and sizes. The coffee table as we know it today replaced the English tea table in the beginning of 20th century. Back in time they were usually made of wood but the materials for contemporary coffee tables may vary from glass to acryl and aluminum.
Contemporary coffee tables design
If you are an admirer of modern design but for some reason your living room is furnished in a more traditional way you should not worry. Remember that “opposites attracts”. There is nothing wrong in combining contemporary coffee tables with the interior that you already have. This is the way to add some brightness and modern spirit and vice versa. You can have a modern living room and an accent piece of furniture in more traditional style.
What we need to know when looking at contemporary coffee tables
First of all we need to know what will be the right size for us? You have to know one simple rule – coffee tables should not be more than two thirds of your sofa’s length and their height should be approximately the same as the sofa’s. This rule is usually applied to rectangular tables but still it is valid for any design. We need to have a comfortable reach to our drinks, don’t we?
Yes, materials, design, supporting system are of significant importance when we choose our furniture. Contemporary coffee tables made of glass or acryl are practically timeless while solid wood has proven its durability. As to supporting system you need to make sure that your desired coffee table will be steady enough to meet your needs. And when we talk about design we enter into the world of endless opportunities. You can have it custom made or choose something designed in a modern style.
