What’s in a table: What to look for in a dining or coffee table?

Feb 23rd 2015 at 9:55 PM

There are many differences between a coffee table and a dining table ranging from the size, height and uses of the two. However there are some few similarities between the two which are worth noting, especially when choosing a table for your living space. Below are some of the things to consider

The material used

· Coffee Table

The traditional coffee table is usually made of wood. However, there are other materials which can be used such as metal and glass to add a touch of “art deco” to your living space. These coffee tables may come in different shapes too such as oval or round. The choice of a wooden top or a glass coffee table depends on your living situation. Glass coffee tables are mostly found in a family house either in the living room or in a lounge area. It is rare to find a glass coffee table in a college student’s room. However, wooden top coffee tables can still be found in a family house setup.

· Dining Table

Most dining tables that you find are made of wood, that is a wooden top and a table base made of wood. These days, there are glass dining tables on the market which have a glass top and the table base made of different materials. The dining table bases come in a variety of materials ranging from wood to aluminum. Aluminum dining table bases are more durable and preferred due to their light weight.

The table’s design

· Coffee Table

Apart from the proverbial plain-looking rectangular coffee table, there are those with ornamentation on the corners, the legs and sometimes the top. The variance in design of coffee tables largely depends on the table base. There are coffee table bases with a shelf underneath for placing items such as magazines, books and even the TV remote control. These tables are common in waiting rooms where magazines are kept underneath the table. Others coffee table bases have drawers which you can use for storing.

· Dining Table

Dining tables come in a variety of designs based on the table base and the table top. Assortments of dining table bases designs are available with glass or wooden tops. Examples are the intricate table bases such as the ‘Bobbin’ dining table and other pedestal table base designs which feature a glass top and stylish bases while others such as the ‘Pacific’ dining table have a simple base with a wooden top. Round base dining tables are also popular due to the classy look and minimal space occupied.
