Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.

You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.

If you want a more trendy, contemporary style for your home then you would want coffee tables made of different metals or glass.

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.
