When you have guests in your home, at some point, they will likely take a seat on your couch or on a chair in your living room. When they do, what will they be staring directly at? Your coffee table.
Like it or not, your coffee table is a focal point of your living room, and it’s up to you to decide what kind of statement your coffee table will make. For some people, their coffee table is purely a functional piece of furniture. It’s a place to set their drinks and the remote controls, or even a place to put their feet up. For others, their coffee table is more of a decorative piece. It may hold a few magazines or a plant, but it is there mainly for looks. No matter which category you find yourself in, a custom handmade coffee table could be just what your living room needs.
For people who actually put their coffee table to heavy use, a handmade coffee table is going to be much sturdier than the majority of the options found in retail stores or online. The coffee tables made by Three Pines Wood Co. are made from solid wood, using construction methods that ensure a table’s stability and durability. We don’t use cheap materials that wear down and look shabby over time. Rather, we use hardwoods that hold up well, even under heavy use. Even if your coffee table does get scratched or gets rings on it from not using coasters, it can be sanded down and refinished to look new again. You can’t do that with cheap “wood-like” materials.
A custom handmade coffee table is also great for homes that want their coffee table to be a showpiece. When you go with a custom piece, you can get exactly the style, color, size, and type of wood you want. You don’t have to make any compromises based on what’s available in stores or online. At Three Pines, we not only build custom furniture, but we also design furniture. If you’re not exactly sure what you want, we can work with you to design a piece that matches your style and fits in with the rest of your furniture and décor. We can provide you with a realistic rendering that you can approve before we begin building. We are also experts at sourcing unique and hard-to-find types of wood. If you are looking for something special, like a live-edge slab, reclaimed barnwood, or a specific type of old-growth wood, we can almost certainly find it for you.
If you’ve never had a piece of custom furniture built before, a coffee table is a great place to start! Since coffee tables are relatively small pieces, they are typically much more affordable than dining room tables, entertainment units, or other large pieces of furniture.
