Besides the fireplace, the focal point of a living room is the coffee table. This type of living room tables descended from the European tea table, they usually sit before a sofa and are used to hold knick knacks and magazines as well as coffee cups, and can be made of elaborately carved wood, Plexiglas, glass and chrome, or wicker and bamboo.
Aside from wood, metal coffee tables are all the rage nowadays. Just like the wood, metal tables are sturdy and lightweight. The legs of a metal table are thinner than the top. Moreover, the legs are made into different weird shapes for style. Since metal is strong, the table provide better support than wood.
Wood is a versatile construction material. That is the reason it is commonly used to make furniture articles. Working with wood is easy as it can be molded to various shapes and sizes. While the surface of a wooden table is not smooth initially, it can be made smooth with the right tools. If you are looking for a vintage look, we suggest that you go for wooden tables.
