The Architect Nesting Coffee Tables from West Elm are crafted from ash veneer with an Earl Gray finish, as well as wrought iron legs. Need more surface area? Nix the nesting for twice the space. When you’re done, the smaller table stashes neatly under the large one.
We did promise you a glimpse into the world of live-edge coffee tables, but there are other fun and ingenious ways in which you add the beauty of live-edge wood to your living room. Floating shelves offer the easiest and the most practical option, and they do showcase the brilliance of ‘live edge’ at its unmatchable best. From sleek shelves that are part of the living space entertainment unit to the slim mantel above the fireplace that comes alive each festive season, these smart additions can also complement your natural-edge coffee table.
In contrast to popular perception, the mirrored coffee table fits in surprisingly well with a wide range of styles that vary from sophisticated minimalism to shabby chic and even bohemian. It is the finish of the coffee table (you can look at mirrored coffee tables with different frames), its overall silhouette and geometric shape that ultimately define which style it fits best. A smart coffee table with a distressed wooden frame can blend in with rustic, shabby chic, farmhouse and even industrial styles despite its mirrored surface. On the other hand, futuristic designs with a refined aura are perfect for high-end bachelor pads oozing with minimalism.
