What is a good coffee table for a living room? It is that very accessory that, when selected properly, elevates the simple interior to artwork heights. Indeed, any coffee table carries on an array of tasks – holds drinks, snacks, keys, magazines, laptop, serves a playing ground and a battle field – on a daily basis. Yet first of all, it is a décor object, a center piece that turns little discrepancies of the interior planning into interesting quirks that emphasizes the overall elegant design.
Yes, a coffee table of high quality and couture exterior can work wonders in your living room, but how to pick this one and only item? Maxiwoods will gladly guide you through the intricacies of the selection process, yet we put it straight right from the start: a coffee table made of natural wood is the best option on the market.
Why Opt For Natural Wood Coffee Tables?
A real wood coffee table is a timeless classic. Designs and shapes can change over time, yet the appeal and glamor of real wood retain their power. Such a table will fit any interior, from farmhouse and Provence to modernist and avant-garde. The most coveted vintage and antique tables are inevitably made of expensive wood, with marquee, inlays, gilding and carving. Modern high-end tables are equally sought after among customers and designers. Their secret is wood styling versatility and unique natural feel that cannot be imitated by any other material.
What Wooden Table Styles Are Available?
The styles of natural wood coffee table and end tables are endless and are limited by scope of designer’s imagination only. Such tables are comparatively small by dimensions and do not need to provide space for legs, like dining tables, so it is easier to fit them into the interior. This is also a reason you see a selection of monolith, sculptural and futuristic tables of all shapes and sizes. Placed in the middle of the room, these tables act as art objects and conversation starters, in addition to their immediate functions.
Key Advantages of A Natural Wood Coffee Table
Wood is versatile in look and properties, it can be incorporated into a table design with minimal visual impact on wood texture, or it can be processed, tinted, painted or varnished to provide you with necessary shade that will complement your interior. Fully metal coffee tables have a ‘cold’ look, plastic tables go in and out of fashion easily, and let’s be honest, look cheap. Marble is great in appearance but overly expensive and hard in everyday handling. Expensive veneer on chipboard cracks and unglued easily.
Only wood is flexible in visual effects but natural enough to make you feel comfortable every time you see and touch it. Besides, natural wood coffee tables for sale are often made of oak, teak and mahogany that are extremely durable, and so hand-crafted tables will last for generations.
When reclaimed wood is used, it also contributes to sustainable manufacturing and rescues the precious material from demise.
Beautiful Wood Coffee Tables: Durability And Possible Care Required
Wood is lasting and sturdy material, and if cared for properly, can serve you as long as you want. Durability depends on kind of wood and type of finish. Softer kinds of wood like fir or lime tree can be scratched easily, but they are light in weight and can be moved around the room with ease. Oak, walnut, and maple are heavier with dense texture, they are more resistant to impacts but it can be hard to move them from place to place often.
Finish also matters in durability. Water resistant oils and varnishes usually protect the wood from damage, yet a highly polished surface can take stains from glasses, cups or spills. To help your cherished table last longer, use placemats, table runners, or coasters. Clean the table with soft slightly damp cloth, and apply polishing substances if necessary. Pick a natural wood and glass coffee table for additional top protection and you will proudly pass it as a family treasure to your grandchildren.
Remember, that wood is a natural material that ‘breathes’, that is, slightly expands in damp conditions and shrinks in a dry environment. It is a normal reaction to change in conditions. Usually, top class furniture has special tiny clearances along the assembling lines to accommodate these changes. Yet if possible, maintain normal humidity in the room, it will benefit both you and your wooden furniture.
Embedding The Table Into Your Interior
The wealth of styles and shapes makes wooden tables fit for practically every interior.
Simple minimalistic shapes without extensive detailing are fit for any room style, whether on the avant-garde or more conservative side.
A rustic natural wood coffee table would better suit a farmhouse or Mediterranean chic interior.
A modernist geometric table with addition of metallic or epoxy details will match modern loft space or fit the Scandinavian trend. The key advantage of wood and epoxy tables is its styling flexibility. Wooden part can match the existing set of furniture, and epoxy provides a refreshing touch or a pop of color that can be echoed across the room in accessories.
A Good Place For A Table
Coffee table got its name from its primary function – to provide space for a tea set or coffee cups, or entertaining drinks, while not taking much valuable space. So a table should be placed conveniently for everyone sitting on a couch or chairs, while providing enough space for moving around. If you have your furniture placed in a circle, then the table will occupy the center of this circle. If your furnishing consists of a sofa and a TV stand, the table will be put closer to the sofa side of the room, naturally.
A cool thing about a square or rectangular coffee table is that it can be placed as a console or end or side table when necessary. An oval or round natural wood coffee table does not fit this purpose, yet they make an elegant statement in the middle of the room.
