The classic rectangle coffee table is quickly being passed over for newer and more updated shapes. Current trends that are making waves include fresh new takes on round, square, mixed metal, and Lucite. In this post we’ll explore some fun and exciting looks to freshen up your space. Most rooms like the image of the white room with the black metal table consist of existing rectangular shapes from the sofa, rug, and even the room itself. Therefore placing a more organic shape like round or kidney creates a better flow for the eye to follow.
The round coffee table has become increasingly popular and can be found in so many varieties. The Jigsaw Designers love mixing metal into a space for a touch of industrial modern. The gold leaf Modern Glam table below is fresh and light enough to add into most any room.
Carrera marble is the hottest look for kitchens and bathrooms renovations. Therefore this look is trending into the furniture market as well. The marble makes a beautiful table top for coffee tables, and creates a look that is clean, bright and eye catching. The mix of Carrera and the vintage look of the gold leaf legs in the image below are the perfect juxtaposition of modern and vintage.
If you like the metal trend, but don’t want to love it for too long, CB2 designs a chrome and Carrera table that’s very affordable as seen pictured below. Metal and wood styles nod to the industrial vibe that is still going strong, and the solid wood round or square tables will also fit nicely into the industrial modern look for a more organic feel.
We are also seeing a surge in tufted ottomans used as table again. The beauty of a tufted ottoman is that you can recover as the trends in color and fabric change. They have a timeless feel and have slightly more flexibility in their use. In the images below, both the round tufted orange and the turquoise blue really pop in these rooms and give them added personality.
While Lucite is a strong material in many areas of design, the Lucite coffee table is sometimes the perfect addition to a room. The square table below seems to float in the room’s monochromatic palate, not disturbing the serenity. Furthermore, a Lucite table can complete a room and allow for the natural elements like light from a window or a rug to take center stage as shown in the second image of the round Lucite table.
Square coffee tables have also become increasing popular like their relative square dining table. The square table creates a perfect balance in sitting areas, and allows for better flow to the living area. We love the white square table below for its intricate detail while being simple in shape and color. It adds interest to a room with an artistic flair.
Smokey mirrors are being used on walls, dressers, dining tables and even coffee tables. From clean and contemporary to antiqued and ornate this look is on the rise.
Whether you are in search for a statement table with wow factor or an understated one for simplicity, we hope this post will inspire you in a fresh new direction. For more information on smokey mirrors or Lucite check out our archives for previous blogs on these topics.
