Of course, this is everyone‘s first choice. Coffee tables are available in all sorts of sizes, heights, and metal, glass, painted, or natural wood finishes. A traditional coffee table can have a glass top, can be solid wood, or can be made out of metal or finished with a high gloss to shine as the center of attention in the room.
Facing the mantel - In most rooms where there's a mantel, the mantel is the focal point. Since you always want to place furniture so that it faces the focal point. across from a mantel is the perfect place to put a sofa. Across from another sofa - Since visual balance is so important, there´s no better place to put a sofa than facing another (preferably matching) sofa. In small rooms, this isn´t usually possible, but in larger rooms where space can accommodate, it‘s a layout worth considering.
This drastic reduction in wood´s moisture content is important so that the wood doesn´t warp or shrink with changes in humidity and temperature. Warping or shrinkage can destabilize your sofa, and even cause it to lose its shape. You would not see that happening in a quality sofa. Air drying can also work well, but since often times the process is not controlled enough, so you cannot be sure that the wood‘s moisture content is sufficiently reduced.
