Common Solid Material- Wood is typically the material of choice. Wood tables are available in a plethora of painted and stained finishes and have the beautiful appeal of wood grain lines while also being very durable. Wood is still at risk for warping, however, but faithful polishing and a controlled environment that is not too dry will help prevent it. Plastic laminate finishes are still available on wood coffee tables to protect from water rings but others will be coated multiple times with a clear wax. This finish may still be subject to water stains, so invest in coffee table coasters if you plan on keeping your table water ring and stain free over the years. If any chips, cracks, or gouges occur, home stores and home improvement stores carry products that will either disguise or completely fix the imperfection. You may spend a little more money; but overall, wood is a practical choice that will last.
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.
The next proposed element you should consider are accent tables. These don‘t serve any particular function except they are available when needed. They can be used for dining, double as a small coffee table and be moved into whatever location when needed. These tables come in petite sizes, some stack-able and some large, aren‘t very expensive and add a whole other dimension to a room. They can direct traffic flow at a party or act as art for the room.
Large wooden coffee tables go well with big sofas and look wonderful in rooms that are larger than normal. These tables however can be placed even in bedrooms to place sculptures or family photos and are usually created with sleek lines or the antiques ones with carvings. Although coffee tables are available in contemporary or classical designs, the one you chose for your room or home depends on its style while the dimensions of the table must suit the living room arrangement.
