Yes, décor in wood is big in 2018 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
One of the first things you need to consider as you think about bringing home a mirrored coffee table is the traffic in the living room and your lifestyle. Homes filled with little ones might not always be conducive to a mirrored coffee table. Apart from the obvious fragility issues, there is also the problem of keeping the sparkly coffee table shining and dust-free day in and day out. Fingerprints are also an issue with mirrored furniture, so this is definitely not for someone who detests cleaning and constant care. Those willing to take on the extra responsibility gleefully should then consider the style of the living room.
Adding an element of natural wood to the sophisticated contemporary living room completely alters its vibe and creates a cozier and more inviting setting. Since most contemporary and modern living rooms are dominated by glass, stone and other glossy surfaces, the mere presence of wood in the form a live-edge coffee table makes a big difference. This impact is amplified, as the coffee table sits at the heart of the living room and is something you simply cannot miss!
