Not to get misled by its name, blue stone coffee table does not, in fact, come in blue color. Blue stone coffee tables are indeed constructed mainly —especially the surface of the table top— from blue stone, but the stone which is meant in this sense is a number of building stone varieties. In Australia and New Zealand the intended blue stone is basalt, dolerite in Britain, feldspathic sandstone in America, and various other types in many places. Blue stone coffee tables are indeed a unique sight compared to the typical coffee tables that most people purchase.
While other coffee tables usually have wood, glass, or metal surface, blue stone coffee tables have a slightly different approach that gives off the feeling of modern farmhouse with the blue stone surface. The materials for them come from a rugged nature, but they are crafted and turned into a clean cut of a furniture. Furthermore, the finishing is done in light wax finish to soften any coarseness that is left from the reclaimed source. In a way, they bring out a certain warmness to the living room which makes a perfect aura for family in general.
