Many people assume that small coffee tables with storage are just another piece of furniture and ignore it’s importance. But one very important aspect to be considered here is that since these are going to be used in living rooms they become an important visual aspect just like other units like the sofa set, visual display cabinets, TV units and other design accessories. If you notice any interior design photos you’ll see that coffee tables are normally placed right in the center of the room in between the seating arrangements and become a focal point for the people who sit on sofa sets and chat with each other.
Thus the center tables demand more attention and careful selection. If you fix a too big table there then it will occupy lots of volume making the room congested and uncomfortable and a table too small will cause trouble while serving the drinks. That’s why a balance between form, volume and visual appearance is a must while picking up these coffee tables.
