No two homes look exactly alike. You have your own style that you incorporate into your home. So when you’re shopping for a new coffee table, why should you have a traditional one just like everyone else’s?
Some people prefer traditional furniture. There is nothing wrong with having those preferences. But if your preferences lean more towards something different, consider investing in a rustic coffee table. Here are 3 reasons why this may be a good choice for your living room.
Designed To Take Damage Well — Rustic coffee tables are designed to look primitive and weathered. Even if the piece is not designed to look a century old, it has that feel to it like there’s a history behind it. When your life adds its own history to your coffee table, you can use the worn look of the rustic style to your advantage. Busy families put a lot of wear and tear on furniture that is frequently used. And if the table is in a high traffic area such as the den, then chances are that signs of wear will show soon after purchase. But with a rustic table, that wear will give your furniture more character and charm instead of making it look ugly.
Materials Often Eco-Friendly — In an age where our society is more environmentally conscious, purchasing choices that are also environmentally minded are good. Many rustic coffee tables use reclaimed wood in their construction. By using a table made from recycled materials, you make use of existing cut wood instead of cutting down more trees to use new wood. And knowing that your choice helps the environment in that small way may make you feel even better about your new table purchase.
It’s A Stunning Alternative To Typical Tables — One problem with the mass production available these days is that everything tends to look alike. You pick up a new table from the store, and discover next week that three other people you know have the same table. While sometimes it’s fun to follow with a trend, there’s usually a long-term satisfaction found having your own unique twist. In a world where so many things have a cookie-cutter likeness, a rustic coffee table can stand out as something different that uniquely reflects you and your style.
