ggmp. Coffee Tables. August 20th , 2018.
The purpose of a coffee table seems rather straight forward, at its most basic level it is a table in the centre of your living room on which you can put your coffee, magazines, and remotes, it may also moonlight as a dining table, a desk, a children's everything table and a footrest, or at times double up as extra seating or a place to sort your washing. This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you?
Wrought Iron Coffee Tables. "Wrought" is an Old English term for "work" therefore literally it's "worked iron". When you buy a wrought iron furniture, you can be sure that artistry is incorporated in that piece because wrought iron is hammered and bent into shape by highly skilled master craftsmen making the iron long lasting and more resistant to corrosion than other types of metals. Wrought iron tables are elegant pieces by themselves but their beauty is enhanced (or they enhance the beauty) of another material paired to them. For instance wrought iron and glass or wrought iron and stone.
Before beginning your search for the perfect coffee table you should therefore work out what it is that you want from it. Do you want it to be purely ornamental- to create a modern and stylish statement, or are you more interested in its functions- do you plan to eat from it, place drinks on it, store magazines in it or use it as a display cabinet?
When you're undecided and don't know what style or what colour you should choose for your living room, go to the section with round coffee tables, choose one that you like the best, this may then give you inspiration for the design of the rest of the room. Got your eye on a low and white table? You are likely to have a contemporary minimalist style. You like a massive carved, black wood table? Think of classic styling, which may be more to your taste. And examples could continue. The fact is that you can choose the table first, then build around it.
The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it, possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee, choose a small, simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines, flower vase, bowl, etc., then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells, stones, photos, etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space, choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes, which usually is stored underneath one another, and occasionally, when the situation requires, all three tables can be used.
