Miscellaneous Materials- You can find tables that mix materials and create a focal point or conversation piece for your living area. Glass, granite, marble, and slate are common solid surfaces that are inset in a wood coffee table top or even one that is wrought iron or metal. Whatever table top material you choose, you may select a different material for the legs to create interest or creativity.
Materials that are Inexpensive and Low-end- These tables are generally made from materials like: plywood, particle board, or MDF. These materials are typically light-weight compared to solid woods and may actually be hollow inside, so if under heavy use or moved around a lot, beware of puncturing or gouging the material as it will cause unsightly damage that is difficult to repair. While solid color or faux wood grain plastic laminate may coat plywood and particle board to create a smooth finish, MDF is already smooth and able to be painted. Square coffee tables made of these materials are typically inexpensive and will hold up to average, normal use, but be careful of heavy objects as they could cause the table to bow. Also, lighter weight materials may cause the table to slide out of place with a simple nudge. Lastly, check the finish/coating on top to assure it can withstand condensation from drinks that may cause water rings or stains. If there are no concerns with the above issues, an inexpensive coffee table may be right for you and your budget!
Some Examples: A large table that is great to look at and well made is the Leighton Barclay square table with overall dimensions of 20"H, 40"W and 40"D, constructed with rustic cherry veneers and hardwood and has four drawers and a wood framed woven cane shelf, or the William Sheppee Rajah Coffee table in walnut finish and acacia wood constructed with dimensions of 18"H, 53"W and 29"D. Both are perfect for a large room or living space.
There are different varieties of these tables available in the market these days. They can be completely made out of wood or can possess a glass top. The glass top nowadays is a more preferred commodity as it makes the entire table look elegant. But as a general feature a mahogany table comprises of a wooden top with three legs supporting it. Its appearance alone adds to the classy taste of a person of decorating a room. One can keep these pieces of furniture for long and they serve as memorable pieces for years at a stretch.
