California Made Coffee Table: a Signature Piece for Your Living Room

Today, when everyone goes minimal and simplicity of living is the hottest trend, picking a suitable furniture piece that is both functional and decorative is a bit of a challenge. Every single item you bring home should fit smoothly into your interior and be convenient for your purposes. This is why we at Maxiwoods have put our minds to designing handcrafted one-of-the-kind coffee tables and that will be practical and add a truly artistic touch to your living quarters.

A Coffee Table Is the Heart Of Your Living Room Style

Why own custom-made coffee tables, to begin with? Because in times of decluttering and owning less, a truly elegant coffee table or side table becomes the focal point and main décor of the room. Surely, coffee tables do carry on their primary duty to host china tea sets or chunky Italian coffee earthenware, books, phones, board games, and occasionally, creative chaos of Lego bits. But why think function only when you can think luxury and high style, too? To make the right choice, read our guide on a modern designer coffee table and how to fit it seamlessly into your living room.

Coffee Tables: When Size Matters

Begin with planning the size. The table should match the size of your room and the dimensions of your furniture.  A good table is as high as your sitting set or is probably a couple of inches lower. When chosen like that, it is convenient to use and is following the overall visual level of your room. The table should also match the size of the sofa, namely, its longer side should equal two-thirds of the sofa’s length.

Do not worry if the table size you can fit into your interior is too small for your purposes. Stacking tables or sets of tables provide additional table space when necessary and are nested snugly one into another when more room space is needed. Besides, they are interesting decorative elements as such.

Always mind the space to have between the table and other furniture. The more the better, for sure, but if you are somewhat limited in space, think up to 20 inches between the table and the sofa and leave about 30 inches between the table and the opposing wall (or other furniture). Such planning foresees enough space for moving around and for relocating the table closer to or further from the sitting place.

Details Make the Difference

The size of the table alone cannot predict if it will work well in your interior. You need to consider the shape, edge finish, color, design of the tabletop and frame to make the right decision.

Possible Sizes of Coffee Tables

Unlike dining tables, coffee tables are limited in their sizes from small to middle-sized at most. This limitation relates to their function to host a few items. Tables with storage space (a.k.a trunk tables) are usually bigger, but they can be fit not into every apartment.  Our tables range in dimensions from small (12 by 18 inches) to middle-sized (side of 48 inches) that can be used as buffet tables if necessary.

Design Opportunities to Pick from

Designs of coffee tables are so diverse that whole books can be devoted to their descriptions. We deal in design that is minimalist, elegant, and underscores the natural beauty of wood. We enhance its look with iron and epoxy resin and create clear geometric shapes or follow the natural outlines of wood slabs. This look is contemporary and can complement raw loft interior as well as match classic solid wood furniture.

Treatment of Edges

Edges of handcrafted coffee tables can cause much hassle when they are sharp and unfinished. Edges of iron frames should always be smoothened for safety. Edges of wood come in two variations: polished edges where geometry is a key of design, and textured live edges where the character of the wood slab serves as décor of its own. Finished and safe edges are also a decisive element if you have kids who can engage in a merry skirmish right next to the coffee table.

Custom Built Coffee Tables Shapes

Shapes of tables depend only on the boundaries of a designer’s imagination. We have limited ourselves to timeless classics and environmental chic of natural form wood slabs. Hence, we offer square, round, rectangular, avant-garde, and natural wood shape tables.  They can be both pure wood or contrasting wood and colored resin, so you will find a design that will match your personal vision.

The shape is a matter of your personal taste, although round or oval tables are ideal when there isn’t perfect symmetry in the space since they draw the eye in. They’re also great for curved couches and armchairs with a lot of forms. If you prefer to have beverages on the table, rectangular and square tables are the most convenient in social settings. They’re also a lot simpler to decorate. Alternatively, go for something more sculptural, which will become the room’s center point.

Choice of Frame

Creative frames make a difference when materials are classic. High-rise or low rise, C-shape or even S-shape, bulky iron cage for stability, or slim legs for elegance – opportunities are truly impressive.

The Most Coveted Material: Wood

We always keep track of fashion trends and the newest funky materials, yet the best trend that will not go out of style is sustainability and care about the environment. This is why natural materials are the best choice you can make for yourself and for our planet. And this is why wood is appreciated so much.

When we make custom coffee tables for sale, we pick only the best sorts of wood, outstanding both in durability and appearance. Our coffee and side tables are crafted of black walnut, oak, maple, fir, and ash in several color variations. All wood is ethically sourced or reclaimed, thus contributing to sustainability and giving each table its unique story.

What Table Design or Frame Should I Pick from You?

It all depends on your taste, but we’d like to offer you a designer’s tip. A coffee table should have a frame that contrasts the design of your sitting set.  ‘Leggy’ slim sofa and chairs ask for a solid massive table that grounds the room. Massive sofa and chairs without visible legs need an airy table with high legs or frame.

Maxiwoods offers you both design types: you can purchase tables with chunky solid legs, with slim legs or frame, and even opt for complex geometric forms (V-shape with cross-supports, for example). 

What Type of Wood Would You Recommend?

Complemented by high-quality epoxy resin or varnish, each sort attaints a contemporary twist. Raised on wrought iron frames, it becomes elegant and minimalistic without looking plain.

Can I Ask for Different Wood Colors or Shades?

A coffee table is the focal point of your living room. While it may serve as a resting spot for remote controls and magazines, it can also serve as a showcase for your personal style. While there is some science to making a gorgeous tablescape, such as mixing things of different heights, the enchantment comes from an artful combination of flowers, books, trays, and unexpected artifacts.

Natural wood colors are limited, but we can offer you a palette of shades that will complement the texture of every wood type. From dark brown to ash-light, with warm antique and golden shades in between, you can pick the desired shade for your table in each model, and we will give it a durable and safe coating to match your vision.

What Is a Wood Finish? Do I Need It for My Table?

If you plan to opt for natural wood color, we offer the final wood finishes that highlight pattern and texture without altering it. Treatment with high-quality varnish or oil gives a handmade wooden coffee table deep golden tint and resistance against any impact or substance (so a splash of tea will not leave a mark on your prized table). Pick the solid wood treatment kind and get the table with a glowing smooth wooden surface.
