Nothing says modern, contemporary and stylish in the living room quite like these glass and chrome coffee tables. Our curated lines of stylish coffee tables adds a touch of luxury and a well-deserved premium look to any living room.
Why a chrome coffee table
Coffee tables are without a doubt, one of those pieces of furniture that work hard and well for the price and space that they take up. A place for hot cups of tea, stacks of magazine or huge designer tomes; a place to put your feet up or simply to be the gorgeous eye catching centre piece – coffee tables certainly have their work cut out.
That said, a chrome coffee table does all of these tasks perfectly and stylishly too.
Whether your living space style is warm, cosy comfort, stylish leather, or wooden country feel, a chrome coffee table somehow fits right in, regardless of it’s companion furniture pieces. It etches out a space, stands and blends right in.
Chrome coffee tables are perfect for:
Feeling all grown up
Now that the kids have all grown up, toys are no longer strewn across the floor and there’s no chance of toddler accidents – it’s time to reclaim the living room and a perfect way of getting there is with a glass and chrome coffee table.
If there’s something that simply screams ‘grown up space’ a chrome and glass coffee table does it confidently and firmly but oh so subtly.
Making a room feel larger
The combination of metal and glass creates a visual that makes your brain somehow ‘forget’ about the amount of space that it takes up. The clear reflective glass on top and space between the slim chrome legs often make it feel as if the table is transparent and this, by extension makes a space feel larger.
Showing off the flooring underneath
Silly as it may sound, but if you’ve spent thousands on a gorgeous designer rug or worked hard on that beautiful solid wood floor, you don’t want to simply cover it all up with pieces of furniture. And while they don’t make see-through settees, a glass coffee table is the perfect way to make sure your beautiful flooring is seen.
Blending right in
Apart from being modern, contemporary and stylish, chrome furniture is sturdy and built to last. The nature of it’s timeless chrome and glass finish ensures that It blends right in with any soft furnishing, seating and any type of flooring, carpets, wood or tiles.
How to Pick the Right Coffee Table
So if you’ve set your heart on a chrome and glass coffee table, there are types and styles to suit every possible living room type. Here’s what you need to consider.
Check the dimensions especially the foot print, the space it requires and compare this to the space you have. It may be difficult to imagine, so use an old cardboard box or large paper and cut out the shape and size. Place this on the floor or carpet where you would like it to be and look at the space available around it. If it is a coffee table that sits in the middle of the room among the sofas, make sure you have enough leg room and space to move around it.
Equally important is the height of the coffee table. Again, you can use old card board boxes or have your measuring tape locked to the height of the table you are considering and move around the room. This will give you a good idea of the height compared to other pieces of furniture in the room.
Choose a height that works for you. It could be that you have an entertainment unit and a television in front of your sofa, then choose a coffee table that does not block your view or access to the entertainment unit. A table that is lower than usual sometimes works well to give a focal point to the room.
Depending on the shape of your room, you can have a square or rectangle coffee table. There are also round or oval shaped coffee tables. As a rule of thumb, square or round coffee tables work for small and squarish rooms while rectangular or oval coffee tables work for bigger rooms. If you are picking a side coffee table or even a set of nested side tables, be sure to check the space available for this.
Often you will find that a piece of furniture looks right in the showroom but can be very different when placed in your own space. Furniture stores and showrooms are more spacious and have co-ordinated furnishing. Take some time to consider how your chosen coffee table will work within your own living space.
Some bigger furniture stores offer Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality apps to help you see how their furniture would look in your own room virtually. If this is available, use a device with a big screen such as a tablet and place the furniture where you would like it to be to see how it gels with the surrounding space.
Most important of all, whenever you can, buy a piece of furniture that you love. You’ll be looking at it day after day, and having something that brings joy ensures that you’ll love using it and being around it.
