What To Look For When Shopping For A Coffee Table

Whether you’re finally updating your living room furniture, are finishing up a full living room renovation, or you simply want a new coffee table, it can be overwhelming sifting through all of the available options. Coming to a final decision may be more of an emotional process than you’d like to admit, but here at Roughing It In Style we’re committed to helping Northern Coloradans create the perfect atmosphere in their homes.

We’re an excellent resource for barnwood furniture, reclaimed wood cabinets, and accessories or anything else that contributes to your rustic decor. Enjoy our post about coffee tables today, and be sure to reach out if you have any questions about rustic design or products!

Storage

If the games Jenga, Uno, Risk, and Apples to Apples are only the very beginning of your extensive game collection, then chances are high that you’re always looking for more storage in your living room. Why not choose a coffee table that is both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional?

Deep drawers on a sturdy coffee table can free up space in that crowded hallway closet — or even just give you more room for new games. But just because you want space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the style you love. The Hudson Coffee Table has four drawers and will still look great with your other rustic furniture. If storage is something that’s important to you, then don’t give it up just because you find a design that you love! Keep looking and find a piece that will truly meet your needs.

Personality

We’re not in any way saying that your coffee table is going to start talking and be the life of the party, but surely you’ve seen character and personality in your different pieces of furniture. Unique wood, shapes, colors, or details can all enhance a piece’s personality.

For your rustic cabin decor, consider a reclaimed wood coffee table with a story, a coffee table with a southwestern design, or a coffee table with a unique base. The Driftwood Cocktail Table takes the cake for this. Your table doesn’t have to be the center of attention next time you have friends over, but it doesn’t hurt to have it make a statement nonetheless.

And as far as reclaimed wood is concerned, you’ll have a unique piece every time. No two pieces will be identical in color, tones, or texture, which means you’ll have a piece that’s truly yours.

Unique Shape

Round and rectangular coffee tables are popular for a reason, but that doesn’t mean you can’t branch out and try some other uniquely shaped styles. Perhaps you keep with the rectangle, but you opt for a long, narrower version. Or perhaps a more unique shape offered by the Calumet Octagon Coffee Table With Shelf will best meet your style.

Having a unique piece made of reclaimed barnwood is great, but you can really take it to the next level when you incorporate an uncommon shape. You can even incorporate this shape throughout the rest of your rustic furniture and design in fun ways.    

Unique shapes, however, aren’t limited to the table top. Modern designs often play with the traditional shapes in new ways. The acacia Live Edge Coffee Table, for example, has an antique nickel base that’s rectangular but fresh and unique at the same time.

Durability

One aspect we really love about reclaimed wood is the durability it offers. Roughing It In Style uses century-old reclaimed midwestern barnwood that not only provides character and depth, but also incorporates durability into its design. The reclaimed wood has withstood the test of time, and we’ve designed it so it’ll last in your home for many more years to come.

We have beds, hutches, dining room tables, and, of course, coffee tables that are all made of reclaimed barnwood. All of this barnwood furniture is uniquely beautiful and durable.

Whether you’re in Estes Park, Fort Collins, Cheyenne, or somewhere else in the Northern Colorado region, we hope you’ll consider Roughing It In Style if you’re looking for rustic decor. All of our pieces — not just our coffee tables — incorporate storage, personality, unique shapes, or durability in some way that we’re sure you’ll love.
