If you have a very large room and a large coffee table, you can break up the scale of the table by flanking it with pairs of ottomans or benches, as in this example. When there’s a party, they can be moved out of the way for better circulation, but for everyday use these extra seats help connect the sofa at one end and the pair of chairs at the other end. Be sure to use a pair of ottomans — not just a single one.
All four corners can be styled differently, but their visual weight is the roughly same. Sometimes, one corner have a bit more “pop” than the other corners, especially when flowers or another similar organic material are used. There is also sometimes an added element in the center of the table.
When you have two sofas or any larger seating arrangement, a big coffee table might seem like the obvious solution. But also consider a pair of matching coffee tables. They will keep the focus off one large piece of furniture and let your eye move around the room more easily. One classic coffee table size is 48 by 24 inches, so you can plan on that when thinking about your furniture arrangement. A large coffee table is often double that: 48 inches square.
If your teak coffee table is not new, you must surface to remove dirt before you can apply a finish. Mix a few drops of dishwashing liquid with water in a bucket and clean the timber thoroughly. Allow the wood to dry for 4 hours before continuing. RUB the entire surface of the timber with a copper or brass wool pad. Stick teak brightener to the surface of the wood. Allow the solution to sit for about 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a soft cloth.
