Can you imagine a world without coffee tables? While they are called ‘coffee’ tables, we all know that that is not the be all and end all of their existence. Think about the other items you like to keep at hand on your coffee table and let your imagination run wild! It’s a handy place for keeping your stack of home and garden magazines, for other leisurely reads, fresh flowers or other eye-catching knick knacks that suit the character of the room. Look at the different ways you use your coffee table and go from there. If you are someone who likes to be surrounded by beautiful things, think about having built-in shelves for holding your décor items.
Dress up your coffee tables by using glass, polished wood, etched wood or other recycled items. Think about old beer crates, apple crates, old planks of wood and how you can incorporate them into something that will suit the rest of the room. Go for classic or traditional styles, use metal, wrought iron or go for playful, bright patterns that suit your personality.
