Surprisingly, a good coffee table is hard to find. Most people want a coffee table that is unique, fun and a little different but very functional. Tall order!
I decided to look at things a little differently and designed my own coffee table. I didn’t want an oval because the shape is usually extreme so I took a rectangle and softened the edges. I also wanted some additional storage so I added the shelf. Lastly, scale was very important, while I wanted it small it can easily become larger by simply changing the scale.
Material selections are very important in order to blend the design elements of the room together. I choose wood and steel but check out these other options.
