We recently received a minimalist coffee table idea from Jason Phillips Design, entitled Right Angles. Here is the information we were sent in the press release: “In geometry, a right angle is an angle formed by two straight lines that intersect at exactly 90 degrees. As a rotation, a right angle corresponds to a quarter turn, as in a quarter of a full circle. I love exploring dimension, and what comes across as a simple table is actual a painstakingly balanced series of abrupt changes in direction. My intention was to go against one’s natural desire to create a standard path metal bars would move to create a table.The asymmetry works because the angles are so exact. As I worked and reworked the lines, I realized there was opportunity to play with functional glass shelves at different heights. Right Angles is a cocktail table and it measures 48x34x17″h. Constructed from cold-pressed steel and finished in matte black. Other finishes can be custom ordered.” Minimalist and practical, the table is a lovely addition to any modern interior, provided it is inhabited by someone who likes to dust often.
Speaking of materials, coffee tables can come in a wide variety too. There are industrial ones in metal. Materials such as glass combined with either brass or steel offer a more sophisticated look. Whether it is oak, maple, cherry or walnut, wood has its own feel to it. Oak and maple are on the more casual side with walnut and cherry having a more formal look. Consider using Lucite, it will make your table appear to be floating in the room and it offers up a more modern appeal.
Another important factor is to know what the primary use will be. Will the table be more decorative, or provide storage? How much storage will be enough? Tables can come with shelves, or drawers to hold everything from kids’ toys to that stash of magazines you will someday read. Regardless if storage is needed, there is still a good chance you will want to be able to place a drink or a plate down without the risk of tipping over. Pick a piece that will hold drinks and snack plates with ease. If décor is more the purpose, you can focus on one with lines and texture in a material you love.
One of our 2016 New Year’s design resolutions is to declutter. And what better way to do so than by finding a home for everything? The Lacquer Storage Coffee Table ($599) by West Elm has a pop-up top to hide magazines, gadgets and remotes. Got a lot to hide? A 50-inch-wide version also is available.
