Advantages: The advantage of the large wooden coffee table is that it can be used not only as a decorative piece of furniture that lends sophistication and elegance to a room but can also be used to play cards, board games or for kids to use as a study table and as a centerpiece to hold snacks and nibbles when friends and relatives gather for a cozy, intimate evening. If this large coffee table comes in more than one level, so much the better since the extra space can be used to keep plates, and cutlery for easy reach. When looking to buy a coffee table, if you can afford it and providing space is not a problem, you really should go for a large wooden coffee table which would turn out to be a worth while investment in the long term, especially if you ensure that it‘s made of high quality wood and well crafted by expert craftsmen.
A convertible coffee table is a great option for people with space restrictions like a small kitchen or lack of a dining room. It is ideal for someone who lives in a studio apartment. Some fancy ones can transform from a coffee table to an elegant glass topped dining table for when you have company while others that have cleverly hidden stools that come away from the table base for dining. A good example is the dual purpose bamboo Convertible Table designed by the Danish designer Tom Rossau. It changes from a coffee unit to a 10 person dining table. The convertible tables can function as workstations, storage spaces, meal tables or simply flat surfaces for your drink or books while you lounge on the sofa. And all this can be achieved just by adjusting the height of the lift top.
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!
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.
