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.
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.
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.
