Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
We cannot stress the importance of keeping the glass dusted and cleaned regularly. Whether you know it or not, small pieces of dirt and debris that are left on the table can eventually be scratched into the surface, marring the tabletop.
Another popular teak item is foldable teak tables which are extremely versatile and enjoyable. Foldable tables make it both easy and convenient to move the tables from room to room, or even outdoors. In addition, there are tables with foldable extensions, perfect for saving space. Choose from rounded and square shapes and tables with double or single extensions. Teak table trays are also extremely mobile and include a whole host of uses such as functioning as a card table or for a meal in front of the television.
End and side tables enhance the ambiance of any room and even more so if they are made of durable, yet refined, teak. Placing these tables between furniture gives rooms a sense of connection. Teak end and side tables can be square or round, and are great for holding plants or flower vases.
The next great is as an aesthetic addition to improve your overall décor. Many side tables are made with very attractive designs, and they come in an almost limitless selection of shapes and sizes, so you won't have any trouble finding one that matches. There are also many different types of wood used in side tables, and each has its own beauty.
