Coffee tables are such important items that there’s no bad time of year to upgrade your current model, and thus there’s no bad time of year to review the latest designs. The following coffee tables are focused on the summer theme – so any of them would make an elegant addition to your porch or cottage – but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t work just as well in your home throughout the year!

What to Consider When Buying a New Coffee Table

The first thing that most people think about when they’re purchasing a new solid wood coffee table is how it will fit in as a centrepiece for your home among the current décor of the living room. While it’s true that you don’t want to lose sight of the larger picture regarding the interior design of your home, there are a few other important considerations that you should take note of as well.

Quality Materials

Unlike some of the other items in your home, your coffee table can be designed in an almost endless variety of ways – you can click here to view a wide assortment of potential options. But when you’re picking out a new coffee table to fit your home, you’ll want to be careful not to buy one made of low-quality mass-produced materials. Solid wood is the most popular material in manufacturing any kind of furniture because it is so reliable and durable.

Not only will a coffee table last you a lifetime when it is properly cared for, but it will also look stunning as the centrepiece to your living room. When you go with solid wood, you’ll also be able to match the other furniture in your home more readily.

The Popularity of Live Edge

Live edge pieces are extremely popular in 2019. They add a blend of the traditional look of solid wood with a unique style of the raw natural beauty of the wood. Consider the versatility and elegance of the Dundas Coffee Table, which holds an impressive amount of hidden storage.

Mixed Materials

Another way to bring the look and feel of nature into your home is by investing in a coffee table that mixes live edge with epoxy. The Waterfall Resin Coffee Table captures the essence of a natural outdoor water feature and places it right in the middle of your living room – without the need to get anything wet!

The Beauty of Reclaimed Wood

If you’re looking for an option that’s also very popular but veers towards a design that brings a rural feel to meet your urban lifestyle, then a reclaimed wood coffee table will be the perfect choice for you. Consider the option of the Mercer Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table, which combines a traditional shape with the unique beauty of reclaimed materials.

Deciding on a new coffee table can feel like a difficult chore when you don’t have any information to help you figure out what will work best for your home. There are also so many options in unique designs, which are all meant to give you the selection you need. After you read over the merits of each option, you’ll have a much better sense of how to decide, but nothing compares to actually browsing through our online catalogue of products.
