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.
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.
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.
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.
