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.
Geo forms are a hit in today’s design world. No wonder the Origami Coffee Table from West Elm is hard to ignore! Inspired by origami (hence its name), this table features a hand-inlaid bone-tile top and a geometric base with a faceted look.
We did talk earlier about how the live-edge coffee table blends in with pretty much any style that you have going in the living room. But it is still important to understand exactly what works best in your living space depending on available space and the color palette. Live-edge tables in darker tones generally fit in better with modern interiors where the neutral backdrop gives them an opportunity to shine through. In rustic, farmhouse or traditional living rooms, it is best to pick a slab of wood that has already been used in the room to paint a more lucid picture. A glittering metallic base coupled with a wooden top is the way forward in industrial or even mid-century living rooms.
