14 Stunning Multi-functional Coffee Tables
Coffee tables are low tables that are placed in front of the sofa where we place our magazines or drinks or small things while we are in the living area and chatting with friends. That was even how the name coffee table was derived from. Anyway, there are already a lot of variations, prices, styles and materials that make a coffee table. These variations make each one unique, although it was usually rectangular low tables that is typical for them but due to the changes in the art industry and a lot of designers coming up with new designs, coffee tables are now a furniture that we can make as the center of attention in our living areas.
A few years back, furniture was traditional - it only served one purpose. If it was a chair, it's a chair - if it's a table, then it's a table. Just that. But, with the current trends, when we say furniture, it is now multi-purpose. The more use a certain furniture is capable of serving, the more it seems practical to choose. Of course, design and material is always a factor for clients in choosing things, but in the market, the more useful and well-designed a certain item is, the more is marketable. Below is a series of coffee table designs from promising designers which will make us believe that multi-purpose furniture is in style.
