Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!!! Ah, the coffee table. The finishing piece of a living room. It’s like the shoe of an outfit – a proportionately small piece that makes all the difference in the overall result. It’s common to see a variety of coffee tables in living rooms – size, color, material, style, and shape. Rounded coffee tables have the advantage of minimizing potentially hazardous corners; plus, they never look askew. Rectangular coffee tables mimic the shape of most sofas, so they automatically make sense. But what about a square coffee table? Is there a place in design for them? Indeed there is.
Isn’t this living room simply charming? It’s interesting that the only bright colors come from outside. The interior decor is limited to neutrals, more specifically to various tones of gray. At the center there’s this sculptural silver table which stands out thanks to its geometry but also to the fact that it reflects everything around it.
The coffee table, in this case, is the element which brings together a series of modern and traditional elements such as the fireplace mantel, the ceiling trims and that beautiful dark floor. The table is simple and elegant and it has the best of both styles. As you’ve seen in the previous examples, a coffee table, especially if it’s black, can easily blend in and disappear into the décor. But you can also make it stand out if, for example, the rest of the room is decorated in light colors such as these shades of gray and turquoise.
