An alternative to the long rectangular head table is a "captain's table", which is also a long table, but with seating all around it instead of only on one side. This can be an excellent way to be able to accommodate the dates or spouses of your bridal party at the same table as your attendants. Some couples might not like this as well as the traditional head table, as they will not be facing their guests without an obstruction, but it does lend itself to conversation more than the long single-sided table does. Another factor to keep in mind with the captain's table is its very large size; some venues might not have a suitable place in the room for one.
After defining a general style for the new tables, actual designs must be created. In some cases a finished product can be fabricated from a sketch alone. That is not the case with these tables however. Prototypes have to be built based on very rough sketch concepts. The tables have to ultimately be designed three-dimensionally by actually cutting and welding steel. The rough sketches are used as a basic starting point but the overall design is not completely determined beforehand. I use the "design as you go" approach" and each table takes shape on the fly.
Clear acrylic coffee tables can transform your room depending on the choices you make as far as the size, design and additional materials and highlights are concerned. Besides buying readymade tables, consider having a unique one custom designed and made just for you. Acrylic is a material that is easy to work with hence there is practically no design or shape it can't achieve. Try and be as unique as you can be and you will enjoy your acrylic coffee table.
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.
One of the most common things to use in place of a coffee table is old packing cases from early last century. Often these were used to transport tea or other foodstuffs and many still have the original labelling upon them, faded by age. These can make a stylish and surprisingly convenient coffee table and can often be picked up fairly cheaply from antiques centres and fairs. Not only do they make good surfaces they also have a lot of storage space to hide away items that you do not want on display.
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.
