Duval Deniaud. Coffee Table. January 17th , 2018.
But that's really just a beginning. Because the glass top can really be placed over anything that can serve as a pedestal you can purchase round glass coffee tables that feature large sculptures as the base. If you love the sea and beach you can get tables with a large dolphin or whale as the base. Or you can even get ones with striking pieces of driftwood found on a beach or a sculpture of a coral reef complete with tropical fish darting in and out of it.
That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed. This is a particularly nice feature if you have a lovely or expensive Oriental rug or flooring. The table remains useful but doesn't detract from the true star of the room.
A coffee table makes a good foot rest - more often than not working people want to put their feet up after a tiring day of sitting down or running around for their job related tasks. An end table is usually the same level as the sofa or seat and thus becomes an instant ottoman. Raising the feet or legs in this manner is a great way to allow blood to circulate normally back through the feet and legs. And if this is done while watching TV or sipping a refreshing drink it makes for a total relaxing moment at the end of a long day. Working people can also do this while reading doing some sewing or talking on the phone in order to prevent cramps.
The easiest answer is: What about both? You might have two living areas that could benefit from a coffee table and there's no reason that a wood coffee table and a glass coffee table can't be togethe in the same house. However it may be that space and budget are concerns and you may only be able to purchase one table right now. So you find yourself faced with a decision.
