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.
Sometimes our first instinct is to cover large surfaces with an array of items. Yet lots of “stuff” can make even the largest of spaces seem cluttered. Try leaving a portion of your coffee table exposed for a clean look. For those who prefer a bountiful yet tidy look, try placing one bloom-filled vase on your coffee table.The look is abundant yet contemporary, especially if you choose interesting flowers for your arrangement!
Another one of today’s top trends: wire decor. The Apis Coffee Table from CB2 features a grid-patterned iron base and an acacia wood top. As with the table above, this selection is so compact, it can even be used as a side table…which makes it as practical as it is stylish!
