One thing which technology is yet to reach is the bookcase. It can be a thing of practicality as well as an item of beauty, and as it is probably going to be your second largest item of living room furniture in your home aside from the sofa. These too come in all shapes and sizes, and can vary from plain, usually wooden or metal and glass to make-shift room dividers, with lots of square-shaped shelves to hold books, DVDs, CDs as well as picture frames and figurines.
As far as the coffee table is concerned they are used not just for serving coffee but also for keeping magazines and newspapers so that you can use them as and when you need to. Almost every other home which look stylish would have these tables in their living rooms. Different materials can be used for constructing these tables. Decorative materials and wood like pine and teak can be used for their construction and so can one use metals which are both good looking and durable.
