There is a misconception among homeowners that embracing black means turning the living room into a dark space that is black, black and more black. While this look works in some select homes, a better way forward is to combine that black coffee table with a dark accent wall or even a couch in a matching hue to create a look of homogeneity. Add a rug with hints of black, a few black chairs and maybe a dark pendant or two to make a bold style statement.
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.
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.
