The Center of Attention. This approach can be independent of the others or can build off of any of the five previous with the addition of one element that is larger and/or more colorful than the other items. This item then becomes center of attention! You can easily use any of the other five approaches for every day use and then add that something extra for holidays, special occasions, or even just because!
If you want to start breaking the rules with the basics, why not try an oversized square table instead, or an elegantly elongated oval? These days, coffee tables come in all shapes and sizes from triangular to hexagonal to the more abstract. When you’re choosing the shape of your coffee table, take cues from the layout of your room and the shape of your sofa and chairs. If your furniture layout is boxy, a square table makes sense. If your space is longer and your furniture layout follows suit, a longer oval or uniquely shaped table might be a better fit.
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.
Keep in mind that with most glass tops — if they are not inset — you’ll see a green tint on the sides. You can order a speciality glass that doesn’t have this tint, but it’s more expensive. On the other hand, perhaps you want your space to look cozier (and you need some storage). Stash baskets, trunks and old suitcases under simple legged coffee tables to ground spaces that are otherwise too open.
