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.
Types and Dimensions: The more popular type of large wooden coffee tables are generally made of mahogany, pinewood or oak with the tops coming in glass or marble available in the traditional square, round or rectangular shapes. The larger ones have dimensions of 840mm wide, 280mm high and 40mm deep and are large enough to hold a full tray of coffee as well as magazines and newspapers. Some of the much larger wooden coffee tables can be used even as a cabinet or side table and has the capacity to hold a number of items.
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.
Osborne Wood Products gives designers, furniture makers, hobbyists, and homeowners the opportunity to truly express themselves in their furniture and home decor choices. Osborne carries a full line of wooden legs for coffee tables, as well as decorative turnings and carved legs in many other heights. Ideal for a Mission-style coffee table, tapered mission legs are available at a five inch width, creating the bold and strong look the Mission look calls for. A narrower taper is available without the recessed carving, creating a look that is more along the lines of the Shaker style. In addition, a variety of turnings are available, from the simple yet elegant English Country leg, to the more ornate Old World leg. For those occasions which call for something a little bit different, Osborne Wood Products is also more than happy to work with their customers to create custom wood legs.
