No living room is complete without a coffee table. This piece of furniture occupies the central place, and acts as the focal point that pulls the room together. All of the other furniture is placed around and oriented toward the coffee table, meaning that when guests are over, it is the coffee table that sits at the crux of the conversation. This piece of furniture also provides a surface for resting items like books, vases and, of course, coffee! With so much depending on the coffee table, it can be difficult to find the perfect one, but, today on homify, we are going to look at some wonderful, creative coffee tables from our UK experts. There is sure to be something for every style!
This first coffee table, placed in a home decorated by London-based design firm Anna Grace-Davidson Interiors, is an example of classic and casual elegance. The leather upholstery adds texture and a sense of luxury to the room, while the use of colours that are warm yet neutral, ensures that the space gives off a vibe that is not overly formal, but comfortable and inviting. One thing to keep in mind when using an upholstered coffee table is that you will not be able to rest items like cups of tea directly on its surface; for this, we recommended keeping a simple wooden tray nearby, which you can place on the table in order to create a hard surface for things like mugs and glasses.
These unique, beautiful coffee tables come from Touched Interiors, a luxury furniture designer located in Manchester. Their gentle, curving shape and bright lustre will makes these tables the highlight of the living room. The tables are made of copper that has been hammered by hand for a detailed finish. The dark colour of the table top, in conjunction with that gorgeous black mirror, contrasts nicely with the warm glow of the copper, creating an air of stylish mystery.
The table pictured here is the perfect fit for this eclectic living room styled by Crow's Nest Interiors, a firm located in Leeds. The décor is marked by colourful contrasts of pattern and hue that come together to form a fun, textured space. The graphic floral table top with its bright print is the perfect complement to the black and yellow pattern of the vase and the light blue of the walls. We love how the designers have further accessorised the room using fruit and flowers, unexpected elements that help to create a space that is funky and fun!
This design of this coffee table adds a slight twist to the classic wooden, rectangular model. The tabletop here adopts the fashionable colour blocking trend, with the surface of the table being divided into two sections of light wood and one of dark. This asymmetrical feature adds a contemporary, modern element to the room and is a wonderful example of how small, simple details can make all the difference when it comes to style!
