Coffee tables are very common in living rooms and family rooms and have very versatile uses unlike its name suggests. Right from playing your board games to keeping your books or magazines, or a place for the kids to finish their homework, these tables do a lot of work. Sometimes these are a respite for tired feet too! The coffee tables are your perfect accent pieces while being perfectly functional too!
Usually these tables are the focus of any room since they are right in the centre of the room. Being the focus of a room, you need to make sure that these are good looking and suit the decor. There are various modern day options available, but what we fancy more are the 'antique' ones, of which there are many available that blend into the contemporary homes too. There are however a few things that you need to consider before making the purchase.
First of all you need to make sure that the table is a good fit for your chosen space. The table needs to be just the right size and shape and should not be too imposing or even unnoticeable for that matter. Once these basic details are taken care of you need to then consider what the purpose of the table is and whether the one that you have selected is a good solution for the same. If your coffee table is going to be used by the kids for having their snacks or for things that might spill and spoil, you can always get a glass top on your 'antique' table.
The size and aesthetic appeal of the tables also need to be taken into consideration. Whether it will blend into your decor or no? If the space where the coffee table is supposed to be is too big you might want to consider putting in a pair rather than one big table. Pairing up two unique accent pieces will be a good shift of focus and will look bold too. Using an antique coffee table adds a sense of history and charm too. While these already look stunning on their own you might want to consider putting a rug under the table to amp up the look a notch higher. The wooden antique tables amidst the modern day upholstered sofas look stunning.
The most important thing that you need to make sure is that the table blends perfectly well into your decor and suits your aesthetics too. Contemporary rooms do great when they have a hint a little something traditional in them and the antique coffee tables are your best options to introduce this hint of something traditional in the modern day decor.
