Verena Bamberger. Coffee Table. February 11th , 2018.
While the coffee table may seem like it has always been a part of home decor, they actually did not come into use in the American home until the 1920s. While coffee lovers in England was active in coming up with furniture pieces to facilitate a coffee shop type atmosphere, their solution was a table that still stood at about 27 inches tall. The much shorter coffee table height of 18-20 inches which has now become "standard," came into play when the prohibition of the 1920s changed the focus of the home entertainment scene.
The maintenance of a mahogany coffee table is not difficult. It needs to be cleaned with a soft glass cloth thus making the table look bright and shiny. It does not give a very formal appearance thus one can place it in a living room as well. People love it when they see such a beautiful piece of art. Although these tables are expensive yet there is no harm in one buying it as it shows out as an exclusive taste and stands out from rest of the home decor due to its elite appearance.
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!
Many buyers love to use their coffee table in ways other than the purpose for which the table set was intended. When you want to use the table set as a prop, you should buy ottomans and if you plan on storing your books, magazines, and others then buy those that have cabinets, drawers, and compartments, and if it‘s for board games, choose a table which has flat surface that will not easily succumb to pressure. Room décor is an important consideration because the surroundings affect the people in it. The things mentioned above are a must for every buyer to consider because the most wonderful memories happen not in the kitchen or any other part of the house but in the living room associated with coffee table sets.
