Coffee tables must be practical yet stylish and can be the piece that pulls the room together, since it occupies a central position in almost every living room. Wooden coffee tables are graceful but if compared with a wrought iron coffee table the wooden tables do not have the same beauty, grace, elegance and durability. Also there is a range of marble coffee tables that can be used on wrought iron table bases. The standard height for coffee tables is from 16 to 18 inches, but may go as high as 21 inches.
When choosing a table, the first question one should answer is what shape
is best suited to one's room. Coffee tables usually come in either round,
oval or rectangular shapes, and not every shape is right for every room. The
shape is determined mainly by the shape and layout of the living room. <
