Wrought Iron Coffee Table Information

For your convenience we have compiled some basic industry information and tips that should help to answer any questions you may have, and aid you in finding the table that will be most appropriate for your needs.

First a clarification - Do you need a coffee table or a cocktail table?
The dictionary defines a coffee table well as a cocktail table as "low table where magazines can be placed and coffee or cocktails are served". That means they are basically the same thing. The only difference we have been able to locate is perhaps in the shape of the table.

Coffee Table: A round or oval low table that is placed in front of the sofa for holding snack bowls, glasses, magazines, etc.

Cocktail Table: A Cocktail table is a square or rectangular low table that is placed in front of the sofa for holding snack bowls, glasses, magazines, etc.

Size matters - you don't want to buy a coffee table that is too large for your room.

Height - The standard height for coffee tables is from 16 to 18 inches, and the most popular guideline is that a coffee table should be about the same height or one to two inches lower than the seat height of the sofa. But you should always determine your needs before selecting a wrought iron coffee table. For instance, do you entertain frequently? If so, a higher table is sometimes preferable, up to about 21 inches, so your guests won't be inconvenienced while setting down their drinks. Some other exceptions to this guideline are; If you like to use the coffee table as a foot rest, avoid coffee tables that stand higher than your couch as it can be awkward and uncomfortable if your feet are higher than your body while lounging around. Will you be eating at the table? If so, a tea-height table (about 25" tall) will be more comfortable.

Length - The length of the table should always be long enough for everyone seated on the sofa to be able to reach the table. But it should never be as long as the seating area of the sofa itself, to allow people to be able to exit the sofa A general guideline is about two-thirds the length of the sofa (not including arms).

Width - The width can be determined by how much room you have between the upholstered pieces and the table in your seating arrangement - leaving approximately 18 inches around each side of the table and between the table and the sofa.

Scale - The proportion of the coffee table needs to be in keeping with both the size of the living room and the scale of the surrounding furnishings. You don't want to buy a coffee table that is too large for your room. If you live in a small apartment a small coffee table would be practical. On the other hand, if you have a large living space, there is a lot more flexibility when it comes to wrought iron coffee table size.

Shape - Should it be square, rectangular, circular or oval? One of the standard guidelines for coffee table placement is the 18-inch rule. It is recommended that you always allow 18 inches between the coffee table and the sofa or the chairs, anything more puts the table too far from the people sitting on the sofa. Knowing this rule and keeping in mind other consideration can help to determine the shape wrought iron coffee table you need.

Style - The perfect coffee table should complement your living room setting The perfect wrought iron coffee table should not only complement your living room setting, it should also be functional and durable. So when choosing a table, you must take into account its usability and convenience as well as the style of your living room. For instance, if you have young children at home, your coffee table should be sturdy and functional, whereas if you entertain often, you should keep utility as well as appearance in mind.

First consider who's going to be using the table and what they're going to be using it for. Next, analyze your living room's decor so you can match your coffee table to its style Regardless of style, here are a few more guidelines can assist you in making an informed choice: So whether you're looking for a wrought iron coffee table as a focal piece in your living room, or an accent piece to an existing collection, now that you are more informed, you should have no problem selecting the perfect finishing touch for your room.
