With its plenty of uses, a coffee table has become a must-have staple in the living room. It is a place for setting drinks, organizing remote controls, stashing magazines or displaying fun accessories. Due to its central placement, the coffee table easily becomes a focal point to any room. That is why homeowner would want to ensure that it fits the rustic space and theme.
One of the recent trends in do-it-yourself coffee tables is the worn, rustic look or reclaimed lumber and industrial hardware. Moreover, majority of homeowners today are integrating the rustic theme to their indoor decorating style and so coffee tables in rustic style is growing in demand and popularity. It is easy to find one that’s right for the space. If looking for storage, consider ottoman coffee or trunk coffee tables. For a shaper that fits the area perfectly, there are round ones for smaller spaces or a huge square one for bigger areas.
Proportion is the key to uniting the rustic coffee counter to the rest of the decor. For a classic rectangular one, it must measure not more than two-thirds the total length of the sofa and there should be two to three feet between it and the other furniture pieces. Good quality should be a standard when checking out several options. A solid wood table is almost always a preferred choice. It is versatile, durable and could withstand daily wear and tear. Acrylic or glass tend to be more expensive but are timeless and long-lasting.
Natural wood parochial tables come in various sizes, shapes and species. Maple burl, redwood burl, black walnut, myrtle, cypress, buckeye burl and cherry are among the popular choices. The one-of-a-kind color tones with the burl curl and other movement provide every piece an organic feel. Nature that comes to life in the center of the living room in everyday life is simply priceless. There are also several options for the bases of these rustic furnishings, like coffee table, end table, side table, sofa table and contemporary wood base, natural root, large slab or custom metal base.
One fine example of the rusty style and design is a white crate counter made with vintage chic. It is created with crates from craft stores and vintage wine labels transferred into the lumber, a little handmade tea stain and a few casters on solid base, making this unique and truly a beautiful conversation starter. Another great option is a handmade teak-finished console table, which is a perfect centerpiece to any living area decor. The rustic teak finish brings out the mango wood’s natural beauty.
Simple wood pieces are that are just flat on the top on four legs are perfect for the rustic theme. The legs should not be too fancy; otherwise, the important natural look of this design could be lost. Natural log legs are a much better option for a rustic side table compared to perfectly uniformed, polished ones. A knotty pine table is another great consideration for a coffee table. It looks both rustic and naturally elegant because of the combination of knots and shine. One with storage could be a beautiful as well as practical choice.
