Unusual Coffee Tables for Your Home

Whether you’re into cozy-retro or edgy-chic, picking the right piece of commentary furniture for your home can be an over-complicating decision. Unusual coffee tables are one of the best ways to stir up conversation in your place. Especially during the housewarming party when everyone is swirling their wine and pretending to be a European sommelier.

These tips and inspiration will have you ready to commit to a table faster than your indecisiveness can sneak up on you!

Choose a Coffee Table You’ll Love

Of course, style and budget are important. But here are a few more tips that may save you from buyer’s remorse.

  1. Measure, measure, measure: Yes, you want to make sure your table fits in the space. But you also need to make sure that you and everyone who uses the room can move around the table! A good rule is 18″ of clearance room. Your legs, and the legs of the ones you love, will avoid bruised knees and shins.
  2. Consider safety for guests and children: If you have your own little ones, or nieces and nephews who visit often, take them into account when choosing the table. Something sturdy that’s easy to maintain and that they can’t topple over. You don’t want to be responsible for any little boo-boos.
  3. Choose function: Essential for small spaces, but useful even in a 2300 sq. ft. home. Pieces that can do double or triple-duty — storage being the most frequent need — add practicality to décor.

    Hi Megan,

    I work with the Credit.com content team, and I just wanted to reach out and see if you’d be interested in having one of our finance experts write an article for yourwildhome.com.

    One of my colleagues reached out a few months ago but we weren’t able to connect, so I just thought I’d follow up and see if this is something you’d be interested in discussing.

    Is it alright if I pitch you some topic ideas that we think would connect well with your audience?

    Thanks,

    Beth

    I liked how the wood can be designed in to a dj coffee table . It would very cool if I can convince my girl friend to do the same thing with our supper table.
