Contemporary Coffee Tables to Beautify Your Living Room

Posted by Harry Smith on January 13th, 2016

Coffee tables have lost their ‘square’ image in recent years. Any interior designer can complement all types of contemporary décor with modern coffee tables, which are available in different shapes and sizes. So, if you are also thinking to invest in a contemporary coffee table then check out some of the options given below in this post.

The market still comprises a lot of classic wooden coffee tables and other types of furniture items, but designers and manufacturers have introduced more materials like bleached oak and canaletta walnut. Also, some coffee tables are upholstered with high-quality Danish fabrics or Italian leather or a combination of the two.

Aluminium and chrome are frequently used for making the legs of the contemporary coffee tables. Usually, these materials are matt or polished, allowing the shine to be controlled to fit with other metal items in the interior scheme.

Traditionally, building a personalised coffee table for your home or office using your own design would involve choosing your preferred colour of the stain, size and material for the table. With modern Italian glass tables, it’s now possible to have the size made to your requirements and to produce a coffee table from extra clear glass with reduced natural tint, coloured (painted) or smoked glass.

When planning the interior design of your living room or office reception, designers often have to contend with limited space. The perception of this space can be influenced by the right selection of materials. One solution is to source a contemporary glass coffee table which is entirely transparent. Because the table is entirely clear, it makes the room feel more open and that there is less furniture in the room, while still providing the functionality that is required. Take a trip to your local furniture store or online retailer to see what glass furniture is available.

A glass top often suits a coffee table having a contemporary look as it encourages clean lines as well as providing utility. If you are planning to buy a glass table for your living room, make sure it is at least ¼ inch thick. If you find the coffee tables with a glass top thinner than the stated thickness level, you should avoid buying it as it may shatter too easily.

All glass contemporary coffee tables, when selected correctly, can complement modern décor and more classical styles, potentially providing years of usage. Even if you were to replace all the other furnishings in the space and go for the opposite style, the choice you made would complement the new scheme.

One Italian manufacturer of particular prominence in this area is Tonelli, who produce contemporary glass furniture, not onlyfor the home, but also for commercial environments. Their industry leading use of ultra violet bonding to fuse glass components together, means they are an ideal brand to seek out before purchasing glass coffee tables for your living room. This is especially true when the designer requires a completely transparent look to alter the perception of space in the home décor scheme, helping the smallest flats/apartments feel open and roomy.
