Find an ornamental piece of wrought iron fence or a gate and have a wooden frame for it. Place a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass on top of the iron for a smooth surface. You can see that you can use almost anything for a coffee table. Keep in mind that the piece should be sturdy, properly proportioned, and durable, and it will give you great wear and convenience in any room.
Each fabric is going to feel different, and it will add in a very different way to the overall feel of a sofa. You may like the look of heavily textured fabrics, but do you like the feel of them? Does a surface feel too slick? Do you like the sound leather makes when you shift your weight on it? Sit on different fabrics long enough till you find one that is right for you. This is especially important if it is going to be "the sofa," that special one that is used all the time.
The empty space above a sofa is a prime spot in the house for a great piece of art. In fact, it‘s comparable only to space above a mantle. That being said, what kind of art should go there? Should it be a painting? A photograph? While most people stick with the traditional solution of hanging a single painting or photograph above a sofa, there are plenty more options to choose from.
