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.
Round coffee tables naturally take up less space and are ideal for smaller homes. Just because your coffee table is small doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Choose from decorative wood, metal or glass coffee tables. Glass will make your table almost disappear and may create the illusion of a larger space. Also use your coffee table as a focal point and choose an ornate decorated or artisan variety that is detailed with gorgeous inlay, mosaic tiles or other decorative materials.
Transparent glass is another way to go, whether the glass is colorful or clear. Try filling a clear container with sculptural objects (or one artful item) for an alluring centerpiece: If a grouping interests you, it never hurts to keep the colors neutral. Gray, black, beige and brass are a great place to start. Sometimes all it takes is greenery to add a dose of natural color.
