Completing your room with a cocktail table
When choosing a coffee table to add the finishing touch to your reception area, office breakroom, or living space, consider the shape of the furniture. Oval and rectangular coffee tables work well in smaller rooms and pair easily with leather sofas and chairs. Large round and square tables are useful in family rooms and company breakrooms to encourage conversation. Place the table on a rug to further highlight the piece.
Size is another major consideration when adding a wood coffee table. It should be no wider than two-thirds of the length of the sofa in order to maximize space. A table that is too large can overpower a room, while a very small table can get lost and look off-balance. The top of the furniture should be no taller than the top of the lowest seat cushion to prevent strain from reaching items.
Common features of a coffee table
Regardless of the type of furniture you choose for a room, it should complement the space. Glass tables keep the room open and bright, while wood coffee tables offer a classic look. Metal and plastic constructions deliver an industrial feel, while composite materials are ideal for those on a budget.
Help reduce clutter by adding a cocktail table with storage to hold magazines, books, or company brochures for waiting guests to glance through. In small spaces, instead of a full-size coffee table, use a durable end table that can accommodate a desk lamp to provide a little extra lighting.
