Creative Coffee Tables
Use your imagination -- and these ideas -- to invent the perfect coffee table for your living room.
Would a rustic table work best? Maybe a classic table with clean lines, such as the urn table shown at left, would complement the decor nicely. The proportion of the coffee table in relationship to a nearby couch, love seat, or set of chairs is important to think about when selecting the piece. The tapestry-covered box shown below was too small for the large sofa it accompanies, so we added a picnic basket with an ivy plant to one end to lengthen the look of the table. This gives the illusion of greater size and balances the scale of the grouping.
