Certain furniture shapes just seem to have a sense of elegance to them. I like round and square and even circular, but for my money an oval shaped table has a certain elegance to it. Oval coffee tables are undeniably pretty and can accent any living room it is placed in. Whether the living room is large or small, it doesn’t matter; because these pieces of furniture are a classic beauty.
Considered as a classic piece of furniture, manufacturers continue making these types of tables in both traditional and modern designs. Basically, you can find oval-shaped coffee style tables in almost every style and design there is available for these kinds of tables. Most popular today are the traditional, wooden table, and the glass top oval ones.
Contemporary, artistic designs such as chrome, which imitates the effect of liquid steel, also come in oval shapes, but with a little distortion on the shape. These tables are best placed in the middle of the living room, as the main focal point and not as a side table. This is because they tend to hold a lot of objects because of its shape, and it also tends to eat up space. So considering such, it is best placed in front of the sofa rather than at the sides.
However, even if it does seem quite a “space eater”, it is still preferred by many people, even by those with limited spaces in their homes because they come in various sizes (big oval tables and small oval tables), as well as in glass tops. Hence, oval-shaped coffee tables are indeed pieces of furniture that is simply classically beautiful.
