A large number of people assume that marble is a single ‘cream’ colour. In fact, marble comes in a large range of colours; which can be used to create your perfect marble coffee table. This type of table would be perfect if you like bold pieces of furniture, and would go nicely alongside charcoal or cream leather sofas.


Glass Coffee Tables

A glass coffee table can offer a subtle element of class to any living room, as well as being a versatile and long-lasting piece of essential furniture.

Some glass coffee tables will come with strong glass legs, adding to the ‘transparent’ effect, while others will come with either wooden or metal legs – both options not compromising on strength or style.


Wooden Coffee Tables

You can find wooden coffee tables that have been sanded down and treated offering a ‘smooth and sleek’ look, and you can find wooden coffee tables that have simply been sawn/put together using the raw materials – offering a ‘natural’ look.

You can’t fault wooden coffee tables for being environmentally-friendly; having been constructed using all natural materials.
