1. a small, low table
Sitting outside a souk, absorbing the hustle and bustle, the sights and sounds of the main square, perched on an over embellished cushion sipping Moroccan coffee.This was perhaps the first time I recollect noticing a coffee table. This particular one was brass, a low cylinder, finely crafted with typically Arabic geometry. It provided the perfect platform, ornate and fitting to its surroundings whilst being at a neutral height and width to blend into its environment.
Traditionally a coffee table would likely be placed central, as a focus within a living space. Somewhere to put your feet up after a long day at work or to devour your take-away on whilst binge watching Netflix’s latest. Whilst this maybe the role that best suits your needs, the coffee table has progressed beyond this.
If used conventionally, the most aesthetically pleasing proportion would be 1/2 to 2/3 of the length of your sofa and height to be in line of the seat cushion. Here it is customary to adorn the meek coffee table with books, candles and Native Decor Coasters. The surface space that a coffee table provides, becomes a stage to fill your living room with colour and patterns you love so that it bursts
with layers of your personality.
Alternatively the coffee table functions perfectly to fill negative spaces in multiple rooms. Imagine an awkward corner in your hallway. Here the coffee table homes a vase of flowers creating a biophilic ambiance, a moment of oneness with nature. Topped with travel books and artifacts collected on journeys, this podium now fills a nook with untold adventure. Paired with the Avani Occasional Chair, a coffee table in any alcove of your home can generate an uncomplicated reading space. The expanse of a coffee table makes it easy to relax without having to make elaborate choices of how many books, journals or cups of coffee can accompany you during this moment of calm.
A well styled coffee table becomes a focal point to any room. It facilitates conversation, it leads order, it brings aesthetic, whilst skillfully creating a functional space to home a remote or a tray of drinks. The Avani Round Coffee Table can bring intriguing direction to spaces creating a satisfying
balance and just enough excitement.
