The coffee table is a low table that is useful in the living room as a place to drink coffee, magazines, books, and similar items. Here are some tips on how to choose the right coffee table for you. The first thing to consider is what other furniture you have in the living room.
If you prefer a traditional style, there are many tables to choose from. You can choose wooden furniture that is coordinated with existing wooden furniture. Another traditional look is a glass tabletop like a Noguchi coffee table that rests on brass or gilded base.
Upholstered stools are very popular these days because they can serve as a coffee table or low seat to get closer to the fire. People often enjoy making their own tables in a traditional style from updated materials such as beautifully wrought iron gates, old wooden doors, or old wooden floorboards.
If you prefer a modern look, the choice is yours. Cubes made of wood, leather, metal, or Plexiglass are now very popular. Other materials like stone and ceramics can look very neat and sophisticated. Or you can go for a classic design like the Noguchi table.
If your living room is small, a coffee table with a glass top lets in light and doesn’t cover. If you have a really beautiful rug, a table with a glass top will help you flaunt it.
A pretty item looks stunning on a coffee table. You can have different ideas about placing your Noguchi coffee table in an elegant manner. This could be a vase of flowers, a beautiful glass bowl, a wooden bowl filled with pebbles, or a stack of cute books for the table.
