Buying Guide: Center Tables
What is a living room without a center table? Placing a center table is an easy way to assign a focal area in your space, it creates areas for conversation and something you can design around. Here are some tips and ideas to help you in your search for your next table:
1. Assess your seating configuration
What kind of seating do you have? Your choice of center table should mirror the overall shape of your seating area. If your sofas and accent chairs are laid out in a rectangle , longer tables are a good option as it can reach people sitting from end to end. Options like an oval, rectangle or a series of tables arranged lengthwise would be a good fit. If your layout is more of a square, then a circular or square shaped table would be a better choice for your living room.
2. Keep your living room style consistent
Make sure that your center table goes effortlessly with the colors, textures and patterns used in the room. An elegant wooden center piece fits well in a traditional living room while modern spaces demand a center table that is edgy and geometric.
3. Don’t forget about your proportions
For a living room that feels right and well coordinated, it pays to be mindful about your proportions. As a basic rule of thumb, your center table should not be longer than your main sofa! For a heavy and overstuffed couch for example, such pairs well with an equally chunky center table. If you have placed a dainty sofa on the other hand, you’ll be able to create the right scale by matching it with a compact center table. Creating a comparable scale between the pieces in your living area is the key to achieving the right balance.
