My home has always had a coffee table, it has been the place we all jam together, chat and talk about music, books and of course finance for the month. Living room furniture generally has a couch and teapoy and occupies most of the space. When you sit on the couch you would want to keep so many things like magazines, drinks, pen, may be a diary or book. There are so many options to be kept in front of the sofa that serves as a storage space and as a decorative piece. These are some options that will help you decorate in front of your couch and make your home interior useful and stylish.
This is the first choice for most of us. They are available in all sorts of shapes, sizes, height in metal, glass, natural wood finishes. A coffee table needs to be in proportion to the size of the room and the couch in front of which you want to keep it. You cannot cramp a large, heavy table in a small room.
Pair of tiny tables:
Two tiny tables, can be placed side by side, this will give a formal look as opposed to the modern coffee table. Surely, a matched pair looks good, but mismatched set of tables can be used of the same height with matching tops. A pair of antique tables will look perfectly elegant.
You can also place a cottage style, rustic wooden bench, or an old antique dining table.
