Oversize It | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

I want it big, I want it large, I want it to fit even a small hole, I want it sturdy and comfortable.
I want an oversize coffee table to place books and interesting decorations, food and drinks, put up my feet up to listen to music or have a business meeting around it. What were you thinking I was referring to? Although….that thought was nice too….

In a client’s home I have used a Gwendolyn table from Living Space, as large as the three-seat sofa leather they have. It looks great.

It is a myth that a coffee table, which sits in the middle of a conversation area must be small and not overpowering the furniture. I am glad today we have the freedom to choose how we want to decorate a room and there are almost no rules to follow. A large table covering the length of a sofa or just about, will make the room appear larger, whereas a small table will make the room and the seating arrangement look a bit skimpy. I don’t like to see the small tables side by side, or two small ceramic Oriental cylinder in front of the sofa, I like to see an oversize table, something that can store more seating underneath, and can serve everyone sitting around.

I also got this coffee table for a client, who often has more people the house can handle, it provides extra leather seats, which are stored under the glass table top when not in use.

Selecting large furniture for a small room, makes the space look better and reduces the amount of odd, small little things that inevitably crowd the space. Ciao,
