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.
With the right idea and hint of inspiration, you can turn pretty much anything and everything into a fabulous and exceptional coffee table. Wine crate DIY coffee tables are pretty popular among design aficionados as they are both easy to work with and inexpensive. They also bring vintage charm to a living room and you can simple use a quartet of castors to give your coffee table mobility. Be it old doors turned into a coffee table with ample storage space of simply a classic wooden coffee table that helps in your living room organization, giving the discarded and the forgotten a new, useful avatar does feel immensely satisfying!
The design trick with round tables is determining how much walking space there is around the table. Guests should feel comfortable in walking past seated guests, without feeling like a movie theater and saying “excuse me” for seated guests to have to stand! Assume at least 1-2 feet around your coffee table, more or less depending on the seating arrangement.
