Kid friendly Coffee Tables

It’s hard to find attractive kiddy friendly coffee tables. Constraining your selection to those without sharp corners or glass tops reduces potential finds.  Sure, round tempered glass is fine but you’ll hate those gooey little telltale fingerprints that reveal your secret aversion to cleaning way too often. An attractive alternative is a reclaimed wood top like the one above in a  unique “lozenge” shape.  Kids would have a hard time killing this time-worn look as it is pre-distressed.  Furthermore the campaign style iron base is handy for steadying wobbly toddlers.

Another great choice is a round marble top on an iron base.  This one isn’t climbable and the patterning would disguise most sticky messes until company comes.

(Having thwarted your child’s efforts to sabotage your tables, you can only hope they don’t see your walls as a blank canvas.)

Quest for The Coffee Table

Seems that many of us are having trouble finding the right coffee table. Chrome or brass retro lounge look tables are widely available and look sweet surrounded by a sectional.  But some traditional and transitional spaces can’t handle the “bling thing”.

Though dust and small scratches may become visible at times, glass tops are really good.  They take up far less “perceived’ space.

What makes this iron and wood table “perfecto” is it’s generously sized wood framed glass top tapering down to a smaller iron base, leaving room for our feet and our pets which always like to be under them.  The simple deco iron pattern surrounded by distressed cerused wood gives it a warmth that works in traditional and transitional spaces.
