A coffee table is one of the most common furniture items you find in a living room. Some people buy a simple utilitarian one while others opt for a stylish and decorative piece. But today you can buy an adjustable height coffee table which adds to the beauty of a room and also proves to be very useful. Often referred to as a lift top unit, it functions as a basic coffee table to place things on but has the added convenience of adjustable height. So you don‘t have to hurt your back if you want to use it to work on your laptop while you watch TV or eat a meal at. You simply pull it to the proper height and work or relax in comfort.
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.
Whether the legs needed are simple but strong like the Shaker and Mission styles, elegant and graceful like a Cabriole style leg, or sleek and smooth turnings from the simple to the elaborate; quality coffee table legs are essential to a living room that feels truly "complete." Wooden table legs can make or break the thematic unity of a home, and give the discerning designer an opportunity to set the tone for the interactions that will take place in the room.
