How to choose a black coffee table

The main criteria when choosing a black coffee table is whether the style fits with your existing decorating scheme. Working with a black coffee table can be daunting, but when you pick the right one for your space it can both blend into the backdrop and stand out visually at the same time. 

Working with a black coffee table can be exciting, and when done right it can both blend into the backdrop and stand out visually at the same time.

Make sure you choose a material that is durable and will stay black with limited maintenance. Stained wood for example, can get damaged over time and so will need upkeep to keep the black really black. Whereas a metal coffee table will keep its black-ness with limited care or preservation. Wood veneer can chip over time exposing the material underneath which is particularly noticeable when you have a black coffee table. The benefit to veneer is it's super durable and wipe-clean.
