Crafted out of metal or wood in fascinating shapes, modern coffee tables can accompany a wide variety of other furniture in the living room or office. They tend to be small and unobtrusive, making them ideal to be the more abstract neighbor to a traditional furniture setup. They fit in any size of interior, and can provide a great conversation starter. Whether they are used in a simply functional way to provide a resting space for coffee or cocktail glasses, or as a placeholder for fancy books or magazines, they can provide a service for most every decorating scheme.
Coffee table sets are available in many designs, shapes, sizes and brand names. Homeowners are spoiled with choices of rectangular, round and oval shapes. Coffee tables are made of various different materials such as wrought iron, stainless steel, marble, and glass. Some are made of high-quality wood like teak and oak. Some coffee tables are added with glass tops. Depending on the theme of the living room, homeowners can choose antique wrought iron coffee tables for the classic Victorian look. Otherwise, those who like simple, modern look can opt for teak or oak coffee tables in rich burgundy or dark brown. Some coffee tables are made of rare materials such as rattan. These give the overall Asian or Tiki look for the living room, especially for beach houses or homes in a tropical country.
Contemporary and modern coffee tables are hardly recognizable as coffee tables in the traditional sense of the word, as they are usually rectangular and quite plain. The new designs however, are nothing but, and can even create a show-stopping conversational piece that is wonderful for the living room. Usually they are associated as a simple place to rest coffee next to a sofa or couch. More contemporary designs however are interesting enough to stand on their own, and can even be the centerpiece of the room.
"Wrought" is an Old English term for "work" therefore literally it`s "worked iron". When you buy a wrought iron furniture, you can be sure that artistry is incorporated in that piece because wrought iron is hammered and bent into shape by highly skilled master craftsmen making the iron long lasting and more resistant to corrosion than other types of metals. Wrought iron tables are elegant pieces by themselves but their beauty is enhanced (or they enhance the beauty) of another material paired to them. For instance wrought iron and glass or wrought iron and stone.
