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.
We did talk earlier about how the live-edge coffee table blends in with pretty much any style that you have going in the living room. But it is still important to understand exactly what works best in your living space depending on available space and the color palette. Live-edge tables in darker tones generally fit in better with modern interiors where the neutral backdrop gives them an opportunity to shine through. In rustic, farmhouse or traditional living rooms, it is best to pick a slab of wood that has already been used in the room to paint a more lucid picture. A glittering metallic base coupled with a wooden top is the way forward in industrial or even mid-century living rooms.
We end today’s post with a few modular solutions that bring stools and ottomans into the coffee table zone. CB2’s Zemi Side Table-Stools combine matte black-stained mango wood with a brass powdercoat-finish steel frame for an elegant take on the modular coffee table: Anthropologie’s Bamileke Stools are available in both Circle and Lattice styles, and each piece is handcarved from one piece of wood by local artisans in Cameroon. Combine a few of these beauties for a coffee table solution that’s a true work of art!
