Your coffee table should blend seamlessly with your other home furnishings, as a general rule. So if your home is modern, look for ultra-chic coffee tables made of glass and iron. Such contemporary pieces are sharp and defined, and they make a limited space seem bigger (a big reason that they are often used in apartments). If your home is more traditional, then choose a table that is made of rich wood treated with either a light or deep stain, depending on the color of your existing pieces. Classic wooden coffee tables never go out of style.
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
A coffee table, which is also known by the name of cocktail table, is basically a specific style of low long table, normally leveled in height with rest of the sitting arrangements. It is normally kept in front of the sofa or lounge couches and is generally used to support the utensils containing beverages; so defines the name. Books and magazines, mainly coffee table books and other small items that might be used over a cup of coffee like coasters and such are also kept on the coffee table.
