Adding an element of natural wood to the sophisticated contemporary living room completely alters its vibe and creates a cozier and more inviting setting. Since most contemporary and modern living rooms are dominated by glass, stone and other glossy surfaces, the mere presence of wood in the form a live-edge coffee table makes a big difference. This impact is amplified, as the coffee table sits at the heart of the living room and is something you simply cannot miss!
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.
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.
