Whilst many pieces of furniture are primarily about function and need to be of at least a reasonably standard size and shape to serve their purpose adequately, coffee tables are one area where individual taste and style can be allowed to run wild.
One of the most unique ideas that I have ever seen was a foosball table with shortened legs used in place of a table. Not only did it serve as great coffee table it made for many entertaining evenings. There are also pinball machines and various other alternatives to this theme on the market.
Large wicker picnic hampers can also work in this way too, although they do not provide a very uniform top surface. They do though look stylish, particularly when aged.
A flat surface is about the only standard requirement of a coffee table, everything else is negotiable. This means that you can custom design a table using any materials that you please. The only consideration that you should take into account is the issue of safety; glass should be tempered glass and sharp corners should be smoothed slightly to prevent accidents. Other than these considerations you have free rein.
Square tables - Square has been the perfect shape for ages and you will easily find square acrylic coffee tables for your room. If you go for this style of table, leave space around the table to keep accidents at bay. You can buy a glass top for additional glamour of the table or choose L shaped legs or mix glass or metal with the acrylic for that modern looking table.
Bent tables - This is one of the most popular types of coffee acrylic table today. The style features soft curved edges, making it safer, especially for households that have kids. The bent design gives your table a delicate sensation. You can go for a peekaboo design and choose how far bent your table should be depending on what design appeals the most to you or serves your needs around your home best.
