The Top 2 Rules for Choosing Designer Coffee Tables 

Are you tired of that old coffee table you inherited around 20 years ago or so, or have you had enough of that wooden coffee table you bought at a local commercial furniture store 10 years ago. They say that change is as good as a holiday. In fact, they say that there is nothing quite as liberating as throwing out something old and bringing in something new, and there is no better way to achieve this than by starting with your coffee table. While coffee tables are an important piece of every living room puzzle, it is important to make sure that the table works for your space and décor before choosing. So, before you rush out and buy just any old coffee table that works with your sofa and rug – here are two important rules to consider.

Rule #1: Designer Coffee Tables Should Complement a Space and Not Overbear it  

Coffee tables play an enormous role. Besides the sofa, the coffee table is considered as one of the main attractions of a living room or reception area, and should complement a space and not overbear it. A table that does so much more than just hold mugs, glasses, food, and magazines, not only are designer coffee tables placed right in the middle of the room, but they are also used as a surface for kids’ homework and tired feet. While these humble tables are certainly an important piece of every living room and reception area, make sure that the table works for your space and does not compete with it.

Rule #2: Accessorise Your Coffee Table

A small humble table that does so much more than just stash the remote and hold a few knick-knacks, designer coffee tables make a definitive style statement. While a good designer coffee table is a conversation piece itself, what goes on it will complete the look. A great rule to follow is the rule of threes. Nothing makes for a cluttered surface faster than a large collection of meaningless trinkets. While it’s easy to cram a table with all your favourite items and antiques from around the world, this is a time to apply the rule of threes.

Coffee tables are the perfect spot to display a grouping of attractive conversation pieces, but keep it simple and uncluttered. Only select three cherished accessories that are varied in shape, shade, and size. Perhaps you could go with a glass vase with pink or red roses, a silver bowl, and a rectangular or round vintage silver candle holder. The rule of threes says that less is more, and we at Riverwalk Furniture couldn’t agree more.
