If you cannot find a live-edge coffee table that meets your decorating needs, it is best to think about custom solutions. Turn to your local craftsman and get creative with the coffee table design! All you need is a natural slab of timber that you are in love with, and there are times when you can even craft one in your own garage. Crafting your very own DIY live-edge coffee table is easier than it sounds, and you can also proudly showcase your improved DIY skills, as the bespoke table sits at the heart of your fabulous living room.
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 now take a look at nesting tables that combine to form the ideal coffee table solution. Like this Set of 3 SAIC Paradox Nesting Tables from CB2, created for CB2 collaborative Design Collab. This piece was designed by School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) student Arianna Petrich and features three tables that can be pulled apart to form what appears to be a 3D cube (as shown below).
