Rattan Coffee Tables – A Beautiful and Durable Choice
Rattan coffee tables have always been a favorite with me. When I was a child my grandmother used to bring it out on our visits to our Grandma's house. It was like a piece of furniture and a natural extension of our living room. I would lie on the floor and swing gently back and forth. My friends and I would sit and play games just enjoying the feel of this very special piece of furniture.
Over the years rattan coffee tables have gone through changes and have become much more than just a swing when you lay your head down. Today there are many options when it comes to rattan furniture. For example, you can even find tables made of rattan that helps recreate the southern plantation style of your own home. The rattan coffee tables generally are still hand crafted manually, that said it still speaks to me about the craftsmanship that went into making it. The glass coffee table top has come along way. There are a wide variety of designs and styles that will surely fit in with any decor.
When looking for rattan coffee tables that you may consider, wicker certainly pops. Wicker rattan furniture has a very distinct South American look to it. In fact, if you take a good look around you will find wicker pieces anywhere that you see South America. You can even find wicker cocktail tables, although they are not traditionally considered rattan pieces. However, when you look for rattan cocktail tables in general, you are likely to find a nice mix of wicker and rattan.
Regardless of what kind of wicker coffee tables you prefer you will no doubt find exactly what you are looking for. Wicker rattan furniture is now readily available in a wide variety of styles and prices. So no matter what your budget is, you are sure to be able to find a table that fits into your price range. And, of course, as mentioned before, wicker is a very popular material. Therefore, you are certain to find a table that perfectly suits your home's current design.
What is so nice about wicker coffee tables is how they come in so many different styles. For example, one particular design features a circular rattan coffee table top with four legs. On each of these legs you will find a beautiful design in a unique material. While this particular design is rather stunning, it may not be the best fit for your home.
In addition to choosing a beautiful design, you also have the option of choosing a table's weight capacity. Rattan coffee tables come in a variety of weights and finish. One of the most popular types of finish is a smooth wax coating. This finish has an excellent shine to it and provides a very high level of durability.
If you prefer a more casual or coastal style then you will want to choose coffee tables that feature an organic material like rattan. The woven look of rattan is perfect for homes that feature a natural beach view. In addition to the beautiful look of this type of wicker, it offers a great deal of durability and a very high level of strength.
As mentioned previously, wicker coffee tables come in such a wide variety of designs and styles. No matter what your personal preference in furniture is, you are sure to find the perfect piece that you can enjoy for many years. However, keep in mind that the type of table you choose should be carefully considered. It is always a good idea to visit a local furniture store to get an idea of the options available to you and determine which of these coffee tables would best suit the interior design of your home.
