A polished, mirrored finish need not be the only unique feature of your coffee table, and you can take the style quotient of the living room to a whole new level with an addition that also ushers in geometric contrast. Coffee tables in geometric shapes that go beyond the simple rectangle and square always draw plenty of attention, and these multifaced delights also reflect the ambient light in an even more spectacular fashion. If the mirrored coffee table is not your thing, you can also consider silvery, modern alternatives that bring in the same sheen without actually using a mirrored finish.
We end today’s post with a few modular solutions that bring stools and ottomans into the coffee table zone. CB2’s Zemi Side Table-Stools combine matte black-stained mango wood with a brass powdercoat-finish steel frame for an elegant take on the modular coffee table: Anthropologie’s Bamileke Stools are available in both Circle and Lattice styles, and each piece is handcarved from one piece of wood by local artisans in Cameroon. Combine a few of these beauties for a coffee table solution that’s a true work of art!
We often talk about repeating a certain accent color or even a unique texture inside a room to give it a more coherent and curated look. But when it comes to live-edge décor, this is not an absolute must, and you can use a natural-edge coffee table as an exclusive, one-of-a-kind piece that adds something truly exceptional to the contemporary living area.
