Few pieces of furniture define your living room as the coffee table and fewer see as much traffic as these versatile delights. The modern coffee table is much more than a space for your magazines, books and beverages. It brings the living room together from an aesthetic and functional point of view, provides a dashing focal point when you need one and can also offer a hint of textural and visual contrast on other occasions. But changing between coffee tables with altering seasons and trends can be an expensive and time-consuming affair. And even if you are willing to go the extra yard, it is often hard to find exactly what you are looking.
There’s nothing like a mirrored cube, and when the mirrored panels are smoky, even better! These City Slicker Mirrored Side Tables from CB2 are great solo (think nightstand or side table), yet they’re equally enticing in multiples.
Round coffee tables naturally take up less space and are ideal for smaller homes. Just because your coffee table is small doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Choose from decorative wood, metal or glass coffee tables. Glass will make your table almost disappear and may create the illusion of a larger space. Also use your coffee table as a focal point and choose an ornate decorated or artisan variety that is detailed with gorgeous inlay, mosaic tiles or other decorative materials.
