Distressed Cream Coffee Table

Distressed Cream Coffee Table

A cream furniture finish is a versatile and effective solution for many design scenarios. Being a neutral color, cream can be used in almost any color scheme or decor arrangement. Cream finishes work especially well in Country-style rooms, though they can be used in many other situations, sometimes even more effectively. Let’s take this distressed cream coffee table for instance:

Safavieh Bosco Distressed Cream Coffee Table

In this particular scene we see the table being used in a more Transitional, perhaps leaning toward Contemporary, room. It looks great in contrast with the other neutral colors of the room, and it’s clean white tone pops out of the background making it a strong focal point. This is an effective use of a distressed cream coffee table, but let’s consider some other possibilities.

Country-style rooms often use cream finishes and distressing (sometimes severe distressing) to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Cream, being a nice neutral color, does not have the harshness of pure white which makes it complementary to many light, natural wood finishes. Especially in our example of a mildly distressed table with its classic spun legs, this table would work quite well in a variety of Country-themed spaces.

Cream, being nearly white and indistinguishable among darker colors, can also work well in Contemporary decor. The photo above shows how well cream pops with light gray and beige, imagine it combined with a stark black. This distressed cream coffee table could pair well with the black leather or black fabric of a living room sofa and gray carpet or walls. Cream and black needs to be used carefully though, as overusing this combination can be abrasive, even for Modern decor.

All in all, we see that a distressed cream coffee table has an impressive ability to be both neutral and versatile, but also harsh and powerful. Not that you should run out and buy a distressed cream coffee table just for the heck of it, but if you can visualize any of these scenarios working well in your home, chances are you and your visitors will enjoy the strategic use of such a piece.

Cocktail tables are one of the most overlooked pieces when building a living space. You pick out paint and carpet, get a nice couch to match, an entertainment wall or media chest, a nice TV, maybe a chair or loveseat, even lamp tables seem necessary. But a table to go in the center of room? What would you even put? You can’t find anything to match. And look how much floor space it will eat up. You don’t want that.

So once everything finds its way to its position as governed by your theoretical layout, and you stand back and take in the style and atmosphere of your newly decorated living space, it feels great! Look at this marvelous room you’ve designed!

You sit down and love how comfortable your couch is. The TV is in perfect view. The lamp tables are within reach to light up the room just the right amount. Perfect.

A few days after that original sense of accomplishment, and watching your fantasy come to life, you feel something is… off. You cook dinner or order a pizza and want to go sit and watch TV while you eat. After awkwardly balancing your plate on your lap, with sauces teetering precariously over your brand new couch, you start to think.

You invite friends over to watch the game or catch up with a drink, and suddenly everyone is holding a beer can or wine glass in between their legs, in an awkward hand, or setting it on the floor where passing feet are just waiting to spill it all over your carpet. You REALLY start to think.

The room is comfortable, the room is attractive, the room is great most of the time, but it lacks functionality. Cocktail tables are a simple and easy way to exponentially increase the convenience and functionality of any living space, and can often be quite charming pieces. Although it’s true, you will give up center stage as far as floor space goes, you will get much more use our of a few square feet of convenient table space than you ever would out of a few square feet of open carpet.

The Bernhardt Vintage Patina Square Cocktail Table is just one of many examples of an excellent cocktail table option. This piece has charm, functionality, simple design, and its square shape maximizes the ratio of convenient tabletop space to floor space sacrificed.

This piece has a lower shelf that essentially doubles the storage space for convenient temporary storage or as a display platform to add decorative items to accent the room. This relatively large cocktail table (4’x4’) has more than enough surface area to use for dinner plates or drink glasses, even a box of pizza can be easily laid out for guests or family to partake in.

You’ll likely wind up with newspapers, books, the TV remote, DVDs, mail, and other everyday items finding their way onto the upper or lower area of this piece as it provides such an accessible and convenient area to store and retrieve them, but this cocktail table is no one-trick-pony. The Bernhardt collection is an extremely style conscious furniture line that blends traditional and modern style into something attractive to virtually anyone’s tastes.

If you are looking to add a functional piece to a living space, or designing a living space from scratch, consider the advantages of a cocktail table, and maybe the Bernhardt Vintage Patina Square Cocktail Table will make the perfect center to your space.
