Solid wood coffee table as a focal point for your living room
Published on March 11 2022
When is a table more than a table? When it's the center of attention. Tables are much more than a handy place to store used coffee cups and newspapers; they're a focal point that can give your living room a look like nothing else.
No matter how beautiful it may be, a table whose size does not match that of its surroundings is going to look odd. A center table basically serves to "anchor" a room by filling the void created by the rest of the furniture. A small table in a huge room will look lost. A huge table in a tiny room will look overwhelming. Take a look around your room and evaluate the arrangement of your furniture.
Measure the exact size of the table that fits best. As a rule of thumb, a table about two-thirds the size of your sofa will be the most suitable, while, as for the position, leave a space of 30 to 50 centimeters between the table and the sofa, and 50 to 50 centimeters between the table and the TV cabinet, fireplace or other accessories.

While we're on the subject of size, it's worth noting that we're not just talking about width and length. The height of a table can make a big difference in its overall appearance (not to mention its functionality). To maintain balance, opt for a table that is the same height as the sofa's seat cushions, or no more than 5 centimeters lower.
Some people want a table to store TV remotes, others will want one to store clutter. It doesn't make sense to buy a small round table if you plan to use it for board games or if your child wants to use it for drawing. Think about what you need and buy what works best for you.
