When an interior designer wants to accentuate a furniture piece they utilize an easy trick; they 'framework' the piece to offer it focus. A large couch can be 'mounted' by matching tables with lovely lamps, a home window is 'framed' by intricate drapes, a fireplace is 'mounted' by bookcases or shelves.
Coffee Cocktail Tables: The coffee, or cocktail table, is probably the most functional of the bunch. It is a low table typically placed in front of a sofa where magazines can be placed and coffee or cocktails served. Here, the general rule of thumb is that you should look for a table that is at or about the same height as your sofa or chair seat cushion, but no more than an inch or two shorter as you do not want it to be difficult or uncomfortable for your guests to reach. Another current design trend is to opt for the oversized ottoman as coffee table. By placing a tray on top of an oversized ottoman, you create a more stable surface and an attractive focal point.
Whether you have a table that's currently been stained or painted, there might be some attractive grains beneath that have been covered with whatever shade you used. So, among the first things you may wish to do is strip that table down as well as see what's below. If it has grains and markings that offer it individuality, you might not intend to cover these up. Rather, you can utilize a lighter tinted stain that still makes it look like an ended up piece but shows off the charm of the all-natural timber.
The designs that are readily available when it concerns accent tables does not stop there either as well as primarily they are just the starting to what you might purchase. A few of the other design selections consist of those that are more traditional, others that are much more on the nation, cottage side of the spectrum, some that have a colonial ambiance, and there are also art deco choices as well as those that even combine styles referred to as transitionally styled pieces. The factor there are a lot of style choices is because these furnishings can be crafted from all kind of products and then styled various ways with various finishes.
