Coffee Table. Thursday , February 08th , 2018 - 13:30:05 PM
Shapes and Styles: Of all the large wood coffee tables, the rectangular is by far the most popular especially since it matches the dimensions of most living rooms and lends a special ambiance to it. Tables made of oak veneer are also very popular with the nest of three tables made of wood not only looks good but does a great job in maximizing space in any room.
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.
