Solid tabletops usually have a very square corner. If you have little kids or the circulation is tight, allow extra space at the ends so it’s easier to get around the corners without hitting your shins. Go for color with an upholstered coffee table, as it will draw people to the surrounding sofas and chairs. Top it with a tray to hold books and other items (and to soften a strong color, such as the pink in this image).
You can also try your hand at a DIY coffee table made from wood pallets, crates or reclaimed lumber. Finally, if you want to find the most unconventional coffee table possible, look at things that aren’t coffee tables at all. There are plenty of other functional pieces of furniture that can be used in place of a coffee table.
You can of course mix and match the approaches above to create a unique look! For example, you could use The Four Corners approach and combine it with The Contained Grouping by using a tray on one of the corners. Or you could combine Long & Linear with The Center of Attention, as shown below.
Pour some tung oil on the surface of the wood. Work the oil into the wood with a soft cloth until no more oil will not absorb more maybe for 2 hours. Apply a second layer of oil over the first. In general, this coat will require less time to apply, because the pores of the wood are now full. Allow the oil to dry overnight before your teak coffee table.
