Sculptural wood coffee tables tell their own story and can add a natural element and warmth to a room with multiple upholstered pieces. Sealers and, of course, coasters can help protect the surface from water damage.
If your living room has global style or elements of boho chic, try using a flat topped vintage trunk as your coffee table. For a more traditional space, try an antique chest. Either of these options would make great coffee tables and provide considerable storage. Keep an eye out for unique pieces, and you may just find the perfect non-traditional coffee table hiding right under your nose.
There are limitless options as to how you can style your table, but I’ve taken some of my favorite examples and categorized them into 6 Style Approaches based on the premise used to create the design. The Four Corners. The premise of this approach is that all four corners of the coffee table are weighted equally so that the entire surface feels balanced.
Choose your fabric wisely, since people may want to put up their feet (and shoes). Outdoor fabrics can be smart; steer clear of linen and fabrics with high amounts of rayon or viscose. Take a swatch home and test it out with dirt, red wine or whatever you think your coffee table will encounter, to make sure your fabric choice can handle it all.
