Vintage or modern coffee table? The materials are the key
Some people like it modern, some prefer the classics - whether you belong to the first or the second group, the choice of the right living room table will largely depend on the materials and their visual qualities. Here is a quick overview of the materials available in JUSTyou24 and their impact on the style of the table:
A coffee table with glass plate is the very definition of modern design. The transparent tabletop goes really well with metal elements and high gloss finish, however, it is also not uncommon to see a coffee table of wood and glass in contemporary form. These models are so universal that they can be used either as a private living room table or a professional office table. Additionally, glass tabletops are easy to keep clean - simply use a microfibre cloth and the surface will shine again. All in all, glass is the answer when it comes to modern fancy coffee table.

How high should a coffee table be?
The tabletop of a living room table should be approximately at the same level as the sofa or armchair seats in the room. Usually this means that the height of a coffee table should vary between 45-60 cm, but this depends on the on the other furniture pieces in the room and on your individual preference. You may prefer to choose a higher table with more shelves and storage space underneath.
If you are not sure which height will be suitable, you may want to choose an adjustable height coffee table. Usually the height regulation mechanism is built underneath the tabletop but there are also models with extendable legs to do the job.
Finally, if you don't have a specific preference for the table dimensions, you may simply choose one of the popular sizes. A 60 cm or a 50 cm high coffee table usually fits almost every interior, and it still allows to lay your feet high enough to relax comfortably.

Last but not least, if you prefer space-saving furniture you should definitley consider buying an extendable coffee table, which comes in handy at parties and family meetings.
