The coffee table is a basic piece of furniture often used in a living room or family room setting. The oak coffee tables are designed to bring a rich and elegant look to the room they are placed in. You will find these items available in a medium to light coloured wood that may be stained a shade darker than the natural product. These tables are available in rectangle, oval or round styles to compliment the type of furniture you already have in your living room. The wood has a natural grain running through the surface that enhances the decorative finish on the piece. These tables also come in assorted styles that may include shelves or drawers in the base of the frame.
The basic design of the oak coffee table will have a top surface and four legs. The tables with shelves included in the design will generally have one shelf placed toward the bottom of the legs and may have another about midway. The tables that have drawers in the design will usually have these placed directly underneath the top table surface. This makes them easy to access when the person is in a seated position. The drawers will also have decorative pulls or handles on them to compliment the look of the wood. In addition to the basic wood styles there are also some tables constructed with an oak frame and a marble or glass table top. The glass top tables will have the glass set inside the top edge area of the wood, where the marble tops are placed as solid items covering the whole top surface.
