Evelyn Faerber. Coffee Table. February 13th , 2018.
Even though its design is actually relatively new to the home decor scene, the coffee table is without a doubt the centerpiece of the living room. Whether it bears a vase with a lovely display of flowers or greenery, an array of magazines for the perusal of guests and family, or simply a few unobtrusive sets of coasters; this is where the focus of the living room rests. It may be the place where children color, the location of a family game night, or just - as its name suggests - a resting place for coffee mugs while old friends catch up on the goings on of their daily lives.
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.
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.
After you have figured out that the best coffee table shape to fit your room is a square coffee table, do not forget to consider what would be the best material for this frequently utilized piece of furniture. Consider the following: How will you use it- Practically speaking, the use of your square coffee table will ultimately determine what material you should choose. Some materials are more solid and durable while others are used for the sole purpose of being inexpensive and more affordable, though may or may not last as long as you would like. Once you figure out what the most common use of your table will be, match that use to the material that is strong enough and durable enough to handle it.
