Ivonne Martineau. Coffee Table. September 25th , 2017.
If you`re looking for the perfect table that is visually appealing and gives the eye the illusion of space but that you have reservations with a glass table, then Lucite ends your search. You can now show off that beautiful Persian rug with a coffee table made from Lucite a material which is also known as acrylic that is stronger and clearer than glass.
Contemporary and modern coffee tables are hardly recognizable as coffee tables in the traditional sense of the word, as they are usually rectangular and quite plain. The new designs however, are nothing but, and can even create a show-stopping conversational piece that is wonderful for the living room. Usually they are associated as a simple place to rest coffee next to a sofa or couch. More contemporary designs however are interesting enough to stand on their own, and can even be the centerpiece of the room.
Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
