Few pieces of furniture define your living room as the coffee table and fewer see as much traffic as these versatile delights. The modern coffee table is much more than a space for your magazines, books and beverages. It brings the living room together from an aesthetic and functional point of view, provides a dashing focal point when you need one and can also offer a hint of textural and visual contrast on other occasions. But changing between coffee tables with altering seasons and trends can be an expensive and time-consuming affair. And even if you are willing to go the extra yard, it is often hard to find exactly what you are looking.
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!
