Aiglentina Ynes. Coffee Table. December 06th , 2017.
Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
Coffee table sets are available in many designs, shapes, sizes and brand names. Homeowners are spoiled with choices of rectangular, round and oval shapes. Coffee tables are made of various different materials such as wrought iron, stainless steel, marble, and glass. Some are made of high-quality wood like teak and oak. Some coffee tables are added with glass tops. Depending on the theme of the living room, homeowners can choose antique wrought iron coffee tables for the classic Victorian look. Otherwise, those who like simple, modern look can opt for teak or oak coffee tables in rich burgundy or dark brown. Some coffee tables are made of rare materials such as rattan. These give the overall Asian or Tiki look for the living room, especially for beach houses or homes in a tropical country.
You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
Rustic coffee tables are available in various shapes but the most commonly seen shapes are round, oval, square and rectangular. Generally round and oval have similar features, the only difference is that an oval table is able to cater more people than a round table otherwise both the shapes have smooth edges to it which reduces that chances of you and your family from hurting themselves with the corners of the table. Whereas, rectangular and square tables are generally bought by those who have a bigger room as these shapes in table cater more people than a round or oval table can. these tables have rough edges therefore you have to be careful while you walk around it in order to avoid yourself from getting hurt.
