How to Get the Perfect Wooden Coffee Table

The living room is the heart of any home, and the coffee table is its centrepiece. It's where you gather with family and friends, place your favourite books, and display cherished decorative pieces. At Made in Ply, we understand the importance of choosing the perfect coffee table that complements your style and enhances the overall ambiance of your living space. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the key factors to consider when selecting a wooden coffee table that will elevate your living room to new heights.

 

1. Size and Proportion

Before falling in love with a particular design, consider the size of your living room and the proportions of your existing furniture. A coffee table should be approximately two-thirds the length of your sofa and sit at a comfortable height for easy access. Our coffee table collection at Made in Ply offers a wide range of sizes to suit various room dimensions, ensuring a harmonious balance in your space.

2. Shape and Style

Wooden coffee tables come in an array of shapes and styles, from classic rectangles to trendy round or oval designs. Consider the overall aesthetic of your living room when making your choice. A rectangular table works well in longer, narrower spaces, while a round or square table is ideal for smaller or more intimate settings. At Made in Ply, our skilled craftspeople create tables in various shapes and styles, allowing you to find the perfect match for your interior design.

4. Functionality and Storage

A coffee table is more than just a decorative piece; it's also a functional element in your living room. Consider your storage needs when making your selection. Some of our tables feature built-in shelves, providing a convenient space to store remote controls, magazines, or extra blankets. Others offer a sleek, minimalist design that maximises surface area for displaying books, candles, or your favourite decorative objects.
