Round Coffee Tables

By: Ken Marlborough

Nothing beats the elegance of a round coffee table – the right size, material and make can transform an otherwise unsophisticated living space into something classy and inviting. Round coffee tables add very interesting dimensions to a space filled with furniture. Used correctly, they can balance the elements of your living room and add some extra character to dark corners.

Round coffee tables made of cedar are quickly gaining popularity, mostly because of their practicality and flexibility. Cedar wood strikes an unusual balance of a smooth finish that is highly resistant to the elements, making it the ideal coffee table for both indoor and outdoor use. They are also very easily stained – paint it a different hue each season and give your space an entirely new look year after year.

Round coffee tables are great as either centerpieces or corner accents. The key is to find the right coffee table size and design for your specific purpose. Select a round coffee table with minimalist details if you want other fixtures in your room to stand out, and do the reverse to achieve an opposite effect – choose an intricate and imposing coffee table to downplay the rest of your furniture.

It is also a god idea to buy matching stools, soft tables and lamps to complement your coffee table, if your space allows it. Some people build their whole living room around a particular round coffee table style, especially if the table is exquisitely crafted, very unique or holds some sentimental value (such as high-quality coffee tables are passed on from generation to generation).

To add more character to your coffee table, why not decorate it with colorfully covered books to add instant character to a neural room. Don't be afraid to mix and match. Use your instincts and you will never go wrong.
