Coffee tables furniture requires a little pre planning to use effectively in home design. Too many coffee tables and end tables in one room can mean instant clutter and potential bumping or tripping hazards while too few will leave guests putting glasses on window sills and floors.
Design choices for accessory tables should include an ample coffee table to complement the area in front of sofas and sectionals. It will be the primary focal point for gathering with end tables on each side to frame the main sofa sitting area. Side tables for accent chairs and formal sitting areas are important pieces, and depending on the room’s design, sofa tables can also be used for couches with exposed backs.
For rooms with bold designs and colors, it is best to match all tables to provide a sense of continuity. It accents bolder pieces and doesn’t take away from the overall design effect. When using tables that do not match, it is important to keep a consistency in either color or construction materials of each piece. Contemporary and traditional pieces can be used together if their colors coordinate or feature similar materials like metal or glass.
