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.
One more thing you can do is add attractive objects to the table to make it look a bit much more one-of-a-kind. In many cases people will add a tile top, or mosaic in a certain layout. These can truly make a table look like something fresh and also new. Likewise do not overlook the capacities of equipment. Often adding decorative equipment items onto a current, less than excellent, table will make it appear like a whole brand-new piece.
