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.
Sometimes a coffee table that isn’t the standard height or width is exactly what a room needs. In this instance a very low coffee table creates a crisp horizontal plane in the foreground, offsetting the long horizontal line of the credenza in the background. A higher table would have blocked the view of the credenza and competed with it; the varying heights add interest.
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.
If you choose two or more small square side tables that are the same size, try putting them together in place of a single coffee table. This will give you the look of a standard table with more versatility and visual interest. When you’re entertaining, split the tables up and put them exactly where they’re needed. This also provides more space in the center of the room if needed.
