From curves to straight lines, we now move on to coffee tables that feature right angles. The Jacques Cocktail Table from Jonathan Adler is crafted from brushed brass and Lucite for an incredibly chic result that is compact and transparent. Since you can see through the piece, it’s anything but bulky, making it ideal for compact living areas.
The design trick with round tables is determining how much walking space there is around the table. Guests should feel comfortable in walking past seated guests, without feeling like a movie theater and saying “excuse me” for seated guests to have to stand! Assume at least 1-2 feet around your coffee table, more or less depending on the seating arrangement.
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.
