Every room needs a hint of black to truly elevate its style, anchor it and at times give it that cutting edge that other colors simply cannot deliver. Considering the amount of white and light grays that designers use in contemporary living rooms, black almost seems like an absolute must. And if you are wondering how you can add black to your own living room without completely committing to the color, then few options are as alluring as the coffee table! A black coffee table can be many things – a showstopper that turns heads, a versatile décor piece that holds together an eclectic blend of vivacious colors, or even a minimalist masterpiece!
Few pieces of furniture define your living room as the coffee table and fewer see as much traffic as these versatile delights. The modern coffee table is much more than a space for your magazines, books and beverages. It brings the living room together from an aesthetic and functional point of view, provides a dashing focal point when you need one and can also offer a hint of textural and visual contrast on other occasions. But changing between coffee tables with altering seasons and trends can be an expensive and time-consuming affair. And even if you are willing to go the extra yard, it is often hard to find exactly what you are looking.
There is a misconception among homeowners that embracing black means turning the living room into a dark space that is black, black and more black. While this look works in some select homes, a better way forward is to combine that black coffee table with a dark accent wall or even a couch in a matching hue to create a look of homogeneity. Add a rug with hints of black, a few black chairs and maybe a dark pendant or two to make a bold style statement.
