Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
"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.
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.
Designed by Isamu Noguchi over 50 years ago, table resulted from a match made in heaven by sculpture and furniture. This table features an interlocking wood base and a glass top. This is so popular that it`s design is often imitated, so if you`re in the market for one, checkout the glass edge and the wood base for the artist`s signature. The Herman Miller Company is the one who exclusively manufactures Noguchi tables.
