Naturally, the first criteria for choosing coffee tables should be the overall décor of the room. Décors can be broadly classified as Classical, Chic, Retro, Modern etc. A classic décor will probably be Victorian era heavy and ornate furniture, lots of wood and lots of pink cloth. An ornate, curved leg dark wood coffee table will be perfect in that setting. Totally opposite to classic, we have modern, which is lighter furniture, white wood or steel and glass pieces.
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.
Some people prefer to take a snap of the room where the coffee table is to be placed, to compare with the selected items in the shop. With mobile cameras in abandon these days, it is quite an easy thing to do. Moreover, it happens often that you feel you just have to have this coffee table but not sure if it is the right shade of the color to match your sofa etc. Beats rushing home with a picture of the table instead.
