The topic about softening the ruggedness of rustic look in coffee tables has already been discussed in one of the previous posts, but the same thing is now resurfacing in this post with a different solution that entails.
Modern rustic coffee tables certainly still hold a considerably rustic look, but it is a lesser quality that does not really stand out compared with the typical rough-hewn surfaces. Usually, this is due to the addition of other characteristics in the appearance of the tables; in some cases, they are laced and imbued with details from other materials. These added details are not found often in rustic-themed furniture, and actually belong in a more contemporary designs, giving it a modern edge to the tables’ overall look.
Moreover, reclaimed oak as the material has already suggested that it is not completely old-fashioned at all.
