As you gather the perfect accessories and furniture to suit your home, how much do your “needs” take a role in what you purchase? Coffee tables operate equally for form and function. Traditionally a coffee table should be used for guests, serving beverages and hors d’oeuvres. However, more often, people either use them like a museum display case or place to throw their day to day necessities.Coffee table books, a vase of flowers, the daily mail, travel souvenirs, your keys and cell phone – somehow these tables always end up as a catch-all for everything. Coffee tables can have anything displayed on them: as long as their intimacy means something to you. Whether its a load of books, magazines, plants, candle stick holders or art, it becomes an extension of the room and your personality. Just make sure you have space for guests to place their cups or mugs down, and a coaster to ensure no marks are made. These are just some of the things that come to mind. What’s on your coffee table?
